Manchester City are thought to be monitoring Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers as they consider him as a replacement for Pep Guardiola once the Catalan boss eventually leaves the club.

It has been suggested that there is a clause in Guardiola’s contract which could allow him to leave in the summer, although there is currently no indication as to whether he would choose to do so or not.

Guardiola managed for four seasons at Barcelona and three seasons at Bayern Munich, and with this his fourth campaign at City the board are preparing for his departure in the not too distant future.

And according to the Sun they see Rodgers as the perfect candidate to replace their inspirational leader.

Rodgers has taken his Leicester side to second place in the Premier League this season, and has won plaudits for the Foxes’ performances and for their attacking, fast-paced style of football.

The former Liverpool boss was also hugely successful at Celtic, where he won a total of seven trophies, and could have completed a ‘treble-treble’ in his third season had he stayed in Glasgow.

Rodgers has recently signed a new contract to keep him at Leicester until 2025 amid rumours him linking him with Arsenal , and he insisted he was committed to the Foxes for the long-term shortly before putting pen to paper on the deal.

“Why would I want to leave Leicester City at this moment in time?” Rodgers said.

Nevertheless the chance to join a club with the resources of City would be difficult to resist, and it will certainly be an interesting potential future link to keep an eye on.

Rodgers will be disappointed after his side suffered a blow in their hopes of challenging Liverpool for the title when they drew 1-1 with Norwich on Saturday.
