According to various reports, Manchester United are set to sack David Moyes after less than a season in charge of the club. United struggled in a 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday, and it seems that will be the last straw for United's leadership.

Moyes has been in charge at United less than 11 months, after leaving Everton at the end of of last season to sign a six-year contract with the Red Devils. Things started badly for Moyes as he struggled in the transfer market, failing to secure several players that the club was pursuing, and it never really improved for Sir Alex Ferguson's hand-picked replacement.

United struggled all season, spending most of the campaign out of the top four, and were officially eliminated from next season's Champions League on Sunday. It's the first time in 19 years the club will not play in Europe's biggest club competition.

The Daily Telegraph reports that most of Moyes' back room staff including Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden and Phil Neville will be sacked, with goalkeeper coach Chris Woods' fate still undetermined.

Several high-profile names have already been connected with job including Jürgen Klopp, Diego Simeone, Laurent Blanc and Louis van Gaal.
