According to Telegraph, Leicester city manager, Brendan Rodgers have decided to leave Maguire out of his squad as he has now started implementing the potential replacement to Maguire, so as to lessen the pressure when he leaves.

Although Maguire hasn’t acted in a way that shows he isn’t in his right frame of mind but the manager thinks the transfer rumors must be really affecting the defender in some way and that is why he decided to leave Maguire out of the squad with Turkish defender, Caglar Soyuncu coming in for the English man.

Man United earlier today were reported by Skysports to have agreed to pay £80m for the defender making him the most expensive defender in EPL but the price is still £10m short the price set by the Foxes.

Leicester are expected to give in to the offer considering the fact that Maguire has pleaded with them to let him join Man United this summer.

Unless his calm nature and professionalism would make Leicester take advantage of him since he’s calm and they too do not want to lose him now, but the manager has been reported to have decided to try his possible best to make the deal pull through before the season resumes.

Rodgers is mindful of his Friday clash with Atlanta as he sets to grab his first league win when they will be going head to head with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
