Brendan Rodgers gave up the race to be next Manchester United manager after Leicester’s recent slump in form.

The Foxes didn’t win a Premier League game since December and are currently 11th in the table, hampering Rodgers’ chances of winning the Old Trafford title.

Before Liverpool The manager has suffered terrible misfortune this season, having lost the likes of Jonny Evans, Jamie Vardy and Wesley Fofana to long-term injuries.

Even so, it is believed that the United hierarchy no longer considers Rodgers for the vacancy and has drawn up a shortlist of five newcomers.

It is said to include Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio PochettinoAjax’s Erik ten Hag, Spain’s Luis Enrique, Inter Milan’s Simeone Inzaghi and Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann.

According to the report of ESPNno manager is currently considered the preferred person to replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who will begin a two-year consulting contract in the summer.

United are said to be conducting a “comprehensive” analysis of each candidate – including their playing style and the players they need to succeed.

United’s owners – the Glazers – are determined to appoint the right person after a string of poor management choices since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in May 2013.

The Reds have only won three major trophies since – Europa League, FA Cup and the League Cup – and none of these have come within the past five seasons.

The Glazers have appointed David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Rangnick since Ferguson’s departure.

They have also spent more than £1 billion on transfers and have the highest salaries in the Premier League.

Pochettino, Ten Hag and Enrique are said to be the most likely to be appointed, but United will complete their research on Inzaghi and Nagelsmann.

As all five coaches mentioned are currently under contract with rival clubs, the Manchester outfit may need to pay a compensation fee.

Owner of Derby County Wayne Rooney – who has no interest in succeeding Rangnick – has urged United to appoint a “long-term” manager.

“Obviously they’re going through a tough time,” Rooney said earlier this month.

“In my view, what they need – whether it’s Rangnick or it’s a new manager at the end of the season – is someone to come in and have time. Time to build the squad.

“I think the next three years will certainly be very difficult to win the Premier League.

“They need to give someone time to build a squad and then really challenge for the big prizes, which a club like Man Utd needs to do.”

Paul Merson, meanwhile, believes Pochettino is not the right man for the United job.

“You have to remember that he also couldn’t win the French league last year,” Merson said earlier this month. “It’s almost impossible to do.

“People keep saying they need to go out and see Pochettino but I don’t understand why. It crashes in. That’s all I ever heard.

“What did he do? Tottenham to the end of Champions League and his side on Tuesday [and second] a year in the Premier League. “
