Rodgers 'prepared' for Maguire interest
Brendan Rodgers expects interest in England defender Harry Maguire this summer but is unconcerned at the moment.
Rodgers is now in the King Power Stadium hotseat after replacing the sacked Claude Puel and oversaw a 2-1 defeat to Watford in his first game in charge.
The former Liverpool chief says he moved to the Foxes due to the potential of the squad, with the likes of Maguire rated as one of the top defenders in the European game.
That status will inevitably lead some of the Premier League’s finest to show an interest and Manchester United have been linked in recent months.
It remains to be seen if the Red Devils do make an offer at the end of the season but Rodgers has made it clear he will deal with that eventuality if and when it occurs.
"They may well come in," he told the Leicester Mercury. "But it doesn’t worry me. I think all you can worry about is that you make the team the very best they can be.
"You always have to be prepared for that moment as a club. It happens but at this moment in time, I’m thinking about the team, and making it the best that we can."
