The player was offered to them for just £15 million last summer before he completed his move away from Hull City to join Leicester, who paid £12 million to sign him.

"Do I think he will still be manager of Manchester United this time next year?"

Asked about United's interest, Leicester boss Puel joked with the media at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

He knows how to galvanise teams by instilling a siege mentality sometimes and he is going to need all his dark arts to create that atmosphere of "Manchester United against the world" to make them formidable again.

Claude Puel says the fitness of Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy will be assessed before a decision is made on Leicester City's squad to face Manchester United.

"We have had good talks with Harry and with the chairman and we can not change things just before the first game of the season and just before the end of the transfer window".

Riyad Mahrez responded negatively when Leicester blocked an initial move from Manchester City in January but Puel is confident that Maguire will have a different reaction.

Today Jose Mourinho was likely sat in his hotel room, ordering room service and shouting obscenities at Sky Sports news as Transfer Deadline Day quickly came and went and his mood wouldn't have been helped by Claude Puel trolling him. Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances. "He has made that clear to all of us", said Chilwell. He is going to be here for the whole season. "We are all happy that he has stayed".

"We have to prepare this season with good possibility".
