The Leicester City manager has refused to confirm whether or not Harry Maguire is happy playing for the Foxes as Manchester United remain interested.

Harry Maguire is definitely going to cost Manchester United a fortune. The England international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer and it appears that it would take a mammoth bid to convince Leicester City into letting go of their prized asset.

And Brendan Rodgers is not too keen on seeing the back of Maguire. The former Liverpool manager has said that he doesn’t know what will happen in the future but admitted that he is totally relaxed about the situation.

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

“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.”

With United set to mount an official bid for Maguire, it remains to be seen if the defender is going to be with his current teammates for long.
