Speculation grows amid reports that Manchester United will sack David Moyes

The Scot may be facing the sack as results at Old Trafford fail to improve

After another defeat at the weekend, this time to his former club Everton, Manchester United boss David Moyes looks to be facing increased pressure as rumours that he is about to face the sack begin to circulate.

Both The Guardian and The Telegraph are both reporting that the Manchester United boss will be sacked, and sooner rather than later.

This isn't the first time in recent weeks that Moyes' job has come under pressure, after there were rumours that the Glazers had lined up Louis van Gaal to replace him, but now his is not the only name on the list.

Should he be shown the door before the end of the season, as is appearing likely going by the reports, Ryan Giggs may be asked to take temporary charge, with a list of high profile names being lined up in the summer for the job, including Jürgen Klopp, Diego Simeone of Atlético Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain's Laurent Blanc.

The problem for Moyes seems to be that the board has lost confidence after the team's poor performances, and as they have shown no signs of improvement this season, they are unsure as to whether he should be the man to rebuild the squad this summer.

The news may be made official soon, and may have the desired effect on the stock of the club, which has taken a dip since the rumours broke a short while ago.
