Liverpool may have handed Man Utd major January transfer boost with Leicester demolition

Rodgers was linked with the Arsenal job earlier this month after the Gunners axed Unai Emery.

However, the Northern Irishman signed a new contract with Leicester to prove he is committed to the project.

But to continue building for the future the ex-Celtic boss must keep hold of his main men.

A precedent was set in the summer when Leicester did not want to sell Harry Maguire to United.The centre-back eventually got his move, albeit Solskjaer’s side had to stump up a world record fee for a defender (£80m).

If Leicester take the same stance in January then Maddison may cost a similar amount.

However with the title race now over the midfielder’s head could be turned if a blockbuster bid comes in.
