He further reports that Rodgers claimed to have no knowledge about Maguire’s own intentions, as he said that he does not have any idea of what the England International wants to do in future.
According to him, neither Manchester City nor Manchester United have approached Leicester City with a bid, so as per the latest situation, Maguire could remain at the King Power Stadium next season as well.
He was previously demanded by former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho during last season’s summer transfer window, bur Ed Woodward the Chief Executive of the club was unwilling to shell out his £70million asking price back then.
The former Hull City defender had a fantastic 2018-19 season as Leicester finished ninth overall in the Premier League.
Maguire also played a major role in England’s remarkable fourth-place finish in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
