The Scot is believed to be facing the sack less than a year after he first replaced previous Red Devils head coach Sir Alex Ferguson in charge of the Premier League champions.
However, after what has been a disastrous debut campaign for the former Everton boss, with United set to fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League this campaign, and so missing out on the money-spinning Uefa Champions League in the process, Moyes is now expected to be given the axe, possibly as early as this week according to some reports.
And the new favourite to take over from Moyes in the Old Trafford hot seat this summer is the highly rated Dortmund boss, despite the fact that the Bundesliga outfit have also struggled for form so far in this campaign.
But it is said that many on the United board have been hugely impressed with just what the German has managed to achieve with the Ruhr Valley outfit during the last few years at the helm.
