The Northern Irishman has been towards the top of bookmakers’ odds to take the reins at Newcastle United, Manchester United, and even Barcelona in recent weeks.
Now with Nuno Espirito Santo reportedly on the verge of getting sacked from Tottenham Hotspur, City chief Rodgers is in the frame once again.
He sits third-favorite with a number of bookmakers, behind only former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and current Brighton manager Graham Potter – who is said to have turned Tottenham down before.
Responding to speculation linking him with the Newcastle job earlier this month, he said: “I’ve got a contract until 2025. I absolutely love being here.
“I’m very fortunate, I’ve got a great chief executive (Susan Whelan) who runs the club, and a director of football (Jon Rudkin) I have a close relationship with, and a group of players I really enjoy working with.
“We have an infrastructure here that allows us to compete. For me, as long as they don’t want to move me, I’m very happy here.
“I’ve seen the reports around it. It doesn’t help anyone, particularly Steve and Newcastle. It’s the type of week I don’t like in the modern game.”
