Report: Leicester plan fresh bid for Celtic’s Callum McGregor

Leicester City are looking at making another bid for Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor this summer, with The Sun reporting that Brendan Rodgers is preparing for life without James Maddison.

The Sun suggests that Maddison is keen on joining Manchester United at the end of the season in a move that could be worth £80 million.

And that has prompted Rodgers to target making a fresh move for McGregor, with The Sun reporting that the Foxes failed to sign the Hoops star last summer.

The Sun suggests that Rodgers will still want the £25 million-rated midfielder even if Maddison stays. So it will be interesting to see if he is able to lure the 26-year-old away from Parkhead.


TBR View – McGregor will face a tough decision

McGregor has been sensational for Celtic for a number of years. And he has once again played a crucial role in putting Neil Lennon’s men on the cusp of another incredible campaign.


He has reached double figures for both goals and assists this term. And that has helped the Bhoys open up a 10-point lead in the Scottish Premiership. Of course, the League Cup is already in the bag this season.

So he may be reluctant to move on when the prospect of helping the club to win 10 league titles in a row looks set to be on the cards for next season.

Joining Leicester however, would arguably be a fantastic opportunity for McGregor. Rodgers’s men have a brilliant chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

And McGregor may be wary of snubbing a move this summer. He turns 27 in June and may fear that he may not get many more opportunities to play at the top end of the Premier League.

It would surely be tough for McGregor to leave Celtic. But perhaps he may feel that the opportunity is too good to turn down should Leicester come calling this summer.
