Brendan Rodgers & Leicester City
By all accounts Brendan Rodgers is set to return to the Premier League with Leicester City.
Leicester are looking for a new manager having sacked Claude Puel.
Celtic are on course for another domestic treble, however it seems that the allure of top flight English football is too much for Rodgers to resist.
Duncan Castles: Rodgers wants Man United
However according to journalist Duncan Castles, Rodgers would prefer to be Man United’s manager.
United are also on the lookout for a new permanent boss after sacking Jose Mourinho.
Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, Castles said the following about Rodgers:
I understand that he would have reservations about Leicester City for similar reasons and I think he can believe he can get back to higher level in the English game.
Castles made those comments on Monday, a day before the Leicester City story revved up.
Listen to the conversation after 11 minutes on the audio unit below.
What about Chelsea?
Another talking point around Rodgers is whether Chelsea should make a move for the Northern Ireland coach.
Rodgers was a coach at Chelsea before he started his managerial career.
Some believe that Rodgers would be a good replacement for Maurizio Sarri.
Brendan Rodgers would be ideal for Chelsea! knows the club inside out, plays youth, plays decent football and plus he nearly won the league with Flanagan & Sakho at the back. Until we ended their title hopes! Perfect fit for Chelsea in my opinion #CFC #Chelsea #ChelseaFC #KTBFFH
