Jamie Vardy Is 'Being Monitored By Manchester United' As Solution To Striker Problems

Manchester United are 'monitoring' Jamie Vardy's situation at Leicester City, according to reports, as Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Old Trafford remains in the balance.


It was reported last month that five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo has asked to leave Manchester United this summer, with his decision being driven by a desire to play in the Champions League for the remainder of his career.

The 37-year-old, who believes he has three or four years left at the highest level, played his first pre-season game on Sunday against Rayo Vallecano.

But after being substituted at half-time, eyebrows were raised when he left Old Trafford before the final whistle.

With Ten Hag's options in forward areas a concern at present, Anthony Martial is expected to lead the line for United in their Premier League opener against Brighton on Sunday.

So will he try and bring in another striker this summer to replace Edinson Cavani and potentially, Cristiano Ronaldo?

A report from 90min has emerged suggesting a number of clubs are monitoring Jamie Vardy's current situation at the King Power, including both United and Chelsea.

The 35-year-old, who has one year left on his current deal at Leicester, is a proven Premier League goalscorer.

He netted 17 goals in 33 games under Brendan Rodgers in all competitions last season and in turn, broke the record for most goals scored after the age of 30 in England's top flight.

Vardy has reportedly yet to engage in talks with the Foxes over a new deal.

Earlier this year, Leicester boss Rodgers said the club would assess Vardy's future at the club this summer.

"There probably will have been some discussions behind the scenes, but at this moment in time, we're quite relaxed on it," he said.

"He's very happy here. I'm sure we'll assess it and look at it in the summer."
