Brendan Rodgers Plays Down Man Utd Move For Star Player

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has downplayed the much publicised Manchester United move for star player Harry Maguire.

The 26-year-old English international centre back is a major transfer target for the Red Devils this summer.

He has been a long-term target for Manchester United dating back to last summer.

Rodgers spoke about Harry Maguire shortly after the preseason win over Scunthorpe on Tuesday night.

According to him, Leicester City don’t have to sell Harry Maguire this summer despite the interest from fellow Premier League outfit Manchester United.

Manchester United have been turned down on several occasions in their quest to sign Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils had a £70m bid rejected earlier this month with Leicester City said to be holding out for £90m.

Leicester City want a world-record transfer fee for Harry Maguire.

Liverpool centre back Virgil Van Dijk is the current record recipient at £75m following his move from Southampton in January 2018.

Virgil Van Dijk has more than repay that transfer fee after his key role in their Champions League triumph last season.

The Dutch international helped the Reds win a sixth European title courtesy the 2-0 over fellow Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur in their final clash in Madrid.
