Man Utd aware of Rodgers buyout clause in Leicester contract

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted he's committed to the Foxes.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure at Manchester United, Rodgers has been mentioned as a potential replacement.

The Manchester Evening News says Rodgers has a £16m release clause in his contract at Leicester.

“100 per cent. I've got a contract until 2025. I absolutely love being here." Rodgers said earlier this month.

“I'm very fortunate, I've got a great chief executive [Susan Whelan] who runs the club, and a director of football [Jon Rudkin] I have a close relationship with, and a group of players I really enjoy working with. We have an infrastructure here that allows us to compete."
