Jamie Vardy leaving Leicester
Jamie Vardy has revealed his intention to stay at Leicester until the end of his career, and would be willing to snub any interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.
Vardy, now 34, continues to dazzle at the King Power and defy his age, and has already got off the mark this season after scoring against Wolves.
He also appears on the latest episode of ‘A League of Their Own’ and, when quizzed by comedian Jimmy Carr over what move would tempt him, Vardy said he would not leave.
After striker Vardy said, ‘yeah’, Carr then set about trying to discover which of the so-called ‘Big Six’ clubs would interest him.
Having been ribbed for failing to read the show’s research pack, Carr said: ‘If you got an offer from one of the big boy clubs, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man U, would you go?
But Vardy, who has rebuffed Arsenal in the past, was defiant. ‘No. I’d stay there until the end,’ he revealed, leading to a round of applause from the studio audience.
Even Carr was left impressed by his fellow guest. ‘You don’t get that anymore, do you?’ he admitted. ‘I would follow the money, I’d be out of there like a shot.’
That then allowed host Romesh Ranganathan to swoop in with a typically cutting remark, and he sarcastically expressed surprise that Carr ‘likes money’.
The Sun reports that Manchester United are now considered favourites to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
The 35-year-old striker has struggled with injuries of late but started brightly this season, and Chelsea have distanced themselves from a move for the player.
United are desperate for a new striker as Edinson Cavani left and Cristiano Ronaldo could still quit.
Brendan Rodgers has done well to manage Vardy to keep him going as he enters the latter stage of his career.
But Vardy has shown he still knows where the goals are and that could be valuable to his club or any potential suitors.
He is reportedly a shock target for Man Utd who are dealing with a striker crisis at the minute.
Vardy has just one year left on his Foxes contract which might see one of the big clubs look to land him to fix their issues on a short-term deal.
A few years ago Vardy was wanted by Arsenal and remained with Leicester. In truth, his career has not suffered for it, but he may see any chance to join United as a way to end his time in football in style.
He probably has one or two more years left, and his spiky attitude may be welcome at Old Trafford after they have suffered from mediocrity.
