Reports gather pace that Manchester United are ready to part company with David Moyes.

David Moyes is reportedly on the verge of being sacked as manager of Manchester United.

The 50-year-old's position has been under intense scrutiny for some time, with last season's champions currently seventh in the Premier League table and some 23 points worse off than leaders Liverpool.

Moyes has consistently insisted that he has the backing of the Old Trafford board, having often pointed to the "rebuilding job" that needed to be done.

However, numerous reports this afternoon have suggested that in the wake of yesterday's 2-0 defeat to Everton, the Glazer family, who own the club, have lost patience with the Scot.

Under his management, United have lost 14 of their 51 encounters in all competitions.
