Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers fires fresh Harry Maguire transfer warning to Man Utd


Maguire played what could be his last game for Leicester City on Tuesday night, scoring as the Foxes beat Cambridge United 3-0.

The centre-back has been linked with a summer transfer to Manchester United, who are desperate to bolster their defence.

Leicester have apparently rejected two bids for the 26-year-old, who was a target for the club last summer.

And foxes boss Brendan Rodgers refused to confirm whether or not he wanted to leave.

“That’s not really for me to say,” he said.

Despite the looming uncertainty surrounding his future, Rodgers insisted that Maguire is still giving it his all for the club.

Maguire has not publicly declared his will to leave the KingPower stadium, having spent the last two years at Leicester.

“We’re very relaxed,” Rodgers said after the 3-0 win at Cambridge.

“The clubs that have spoken to Leicester have not met any valuation that the club has put on him, so at this moment in time he’s very much a Leicester player, and you can see where his concentration is, and it’s very much here.

“I’m quite relaxed. It’s all ‘what if?’ At this moment in time there’s nothing there that is going to tempt the club at all. The club don’t need to sell, the club don’t want to sell.

“Harry is working with a group of fantastic players and is at a great club, and like I say times have changed in football, where at times with other clubs you would have had to sell a player, but it’s not the case.

“He’s a player that is training, working. What I would say is he’s been the ultimate professional.

“It’s actually been a joy to work with him, because I’ve been in this situation with a number of players, but his concentration is fully on Leicester.

“You see by his performance, and in training every day he’s been absolutely first class.”

United are reportedly ready to pay £80million for Maguire.
