Leicester City are pondering sacking manager Brendan Rodgers in the coming weeks.
The Foxes are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table after just taking one point from their first seven matches.
However, The Sun states that the cash-strapped club may find it too expensive to part with the Northern Irish manager.
The source adds that Rodgers earns a salary of £10million-a-year, which makes him one of the highest paid coaches in the Premier League.
His contract still has three years to run, which means Leicester may have to pay the entire salary if they sack him.
While a gardening leave option is possible, that would still involve paying Rodgers his salary, along with paying another head coach, until the former finds a new job.
