The Leicester boss is planning for the possible loss of James Maddison to Manchester United by preparing a move for the gifted Scottish midfielder.

But whether Maddison moves on or not – and he is understood to be keen on what would be an £80m switch – Rodgers will still want McGregor, 26.

The Scotland international, 26, has built a reputation as a real marathon man of football.

McGregor excelled under Rodgers when he was in charge at Parkhead and the Foxes chief tried to sign him last summer.

And he has only enhanced his reputation this season with eleven goals and ten assists for Neil Lennon’s side as they march towards the title.

The box-to-box Bhoys ace starred in the midweek 1-1 Europa League clash against FC Copenhagen — his 51st game of the season which includes six for his country.

McGregor signed a new deal in the wake of Rodgers’ first raid for him but the Northern Irishman will be confident that he can grab him at the second time of asking.
