Brendan Rodgers wants to reunite with Celtic ace at Leicester

Leicester City manager Brendan rodgers is all set to make a second bid for £25million-rated Callum McGregor from Celtic this summer. 

The Leicester boss is planning to cope with the possible departure of his star number ten James Maddison to Manchester United. 

And, he is said to be preparing a move for the gifted Scottish midfielder whom he managed at Parkhead for almost three years. 

Even if Maddison does not move in the summer in a touted £80m switch, Rodgers is still keen on landing 26-year-old McGregor from north of the border. 

The Scotland international has built a strong reputation for himself in the Scottish Premiership and is one of the best players in the division. 

And, he certainly deserves a step up in his career and is in the perfect age bracket to do so. 

The 18-time capped Scottish international has achieved every bit of success in Scottish football and should be keen on a new and bigger challenge. 

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

The dynamic and versatile midfielder 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. 

The Scotsman is blessed with a lot of energy and natural fitness and could prove to be a great signing for the Foxes. 

He is also very much versatile and can play in midfield as well as high up on the pitch as a creative force. 

And, Rodgers knows him inside out which is an added incentive for both Leicester City as well as the player.
