Brendan Rodgers has been contacted by Manchester United after Sunday’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.
Solskjaer, 48, was fired this morning after nearly three years in charge.
The decision was made within 30 minutes of United’s 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday.
According to The Sun, revealed last month that United were making plans to identify the Norwegian’s successor.

A leading agent had been asked to sound out Northern Irishman Rodgers, 48 — as well as Antonio Conte, Ajax’s Erik Ten Hag and ex-Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.
The agent reported there was a good chance they could get Rodgers.
But not all fans want him after his time at Anfield.
United have named assistant Michael Carrick as caretaker while they finalise a replacement for Solskjaer.
