Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers concedes that a move for James Maddison from Manchester United could be ‘too hard to turn down’, according to the Metro.

Creative playmaker James Madison is certainly admired by United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with plenty of rumours surrounding a potential transfer.

The 22-year-old made the England squad in the most recent internationals, and many England supporters were disappointed not to see the youngster make it on the pitch.

Former Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has already made the switch to United and the Foxes will be desperate not to lose another high-profile player as they push to break the top six.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers understands the lure of a big club.

However, manager Brendan Rodgers admits it’s difficult not to lose players to super clubs such as Manchester United and Liverpool.

He said: “I’ve been fortunate that I’ve been at Liverpool where I understand the draw of that type of club.”

Adding: “Liverpool and Manchester United are two of the biggest clubs by far. There’s other great clubs, there’s big clubs, but those two, in terms of worldwide status, are above the other clubs.

‘There are other great clubs that are trying to catch them up but those two, in my experience, are a level above.

“So whenever a player gets an opportunity to go to a club like that, to experience that type of pressure, that expectation – and of course there’ll be a financial side to it as well, let’s be real – that as a package in a short career is maybe something that is too hard to turn down. 

I understand it, I get it.”
