Manchester United have reportedly contacted Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers as they look to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 20-time champions of England relieved the Norwegian of his duties on Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat at Watford extended United's slump to four losses in the last five Premier League outings.

United have placed Michael Carrick in interim charge but, according to The Sun, are moving quickly to appoint a new permanent manager and have made contact with Rodgers.

The report adds the Old Trafford hierarchy would be prepared to pay Leicester £8 million in compensation to lure the 48-year-old away from the King Power Stadium.

Speaking ahead of Leicester's match against Chelsea, Rodgers said it was 'really disrespectful' to ask him to comment on the rumours linking him with the United job.

'There's two things. Firstly it is really disrespectful to ask the question when you have a manager in place, a good manager and a good man, who is working hard at the club.

'Secondly I can't really comment on it, because it is not something that is real.
