PEP GUARDIOLA’S search for home-grown stars to give his treble-winners an English injection of talent will see him banging on Leicester’s door when he returns from holiday.
But King Power boss Brendan Rodgers is in no hurry to answer as Guardiola brings out his Manchester City cheque book to splash £125 million on Harry Maguire and Ben Chilwell.
Rodgers guided Leicester into a ninth-place finish last season – a whopping 46 points behind champions City – and is determined to build his team around the dynamic defensive pairing.
If City offered £80 million for Maguire, 26, the board would have to think long and hard with Chilwell, 22, valued at £50 million.
Maguire is seen as the perfect fit to fill Vincent Kompany’s boots now he has joined Anderlecht as player coach.
