Man Utd news LIVE: Michael Carrick news conference at 1pm, Brendan Rodgers EXCLUSIVE, Solskjaer exit

GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

Brendan Rodgers has been contacted by Manchester United after today’s sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils are prepared to pay £8million in compensation to his current club, Leicester.

That is on top of a £7.5million payoff for Solskjaer.

Ex-Liverpool boss Rodgers has a clause in his contract letting him speak to certain clubs if they come knocking — and United are one.

Luis Enrique brutally ruled himself out of the Manchester United manager hunt.

Asked about replacing Solskjaer in the hotseat at United, Enrique told La Sexta: “Is today April Fools’ Day?”

Sacked Solskjaer thinks his successor MUST win the Premier League.

He said: “Well, as I’ve said many times in interviews, I’ve been backed.

“The board and the owners have backed me in [terms of] bringing good people in, good players in and I think, or I know I leave this club with a better squad.

“The environment is fantastic, it’s an environment I’m proud of leaving because you have to enjoy coming in here working.

“I don’t want to pre-empt anything but the two times I’ve left Molde, they’ve won the league the year after.

“So all the best to whoever takes over – that’s the expectations!”
