Reports have emerged that Manchester United and Real Madrid admire Jamie Vardy. But a further story claims that Juventus want to sign the striker.

After rising to prominence at first for Leicester City under Nigel Pearson, Jamie Vardy has gone onto be the main man for the Foxes for several different managers at the club. He is revered by the fan base of the east Midlands side. Not to mention being the owner of Premier League records. And his top-flight experience only began at age-27, inexplicably.

This season Vardy has again proven his worth, even as he nears his 34th birthday. Last term he was the English top-flight’s top goalscorer for the first time in his career, an achievement that didn’t go amiss as praise came from all corners of the globe. Nine goals in eight appearances in all competitions this campaign continues the illustrious form.

To that end, it is no surprise that reports still emerge of Vardy being the target of certain clubs’ recruitment departments. Even as the former England man – retiring from international football obviously increased his domestic longevity – develops veteran status.

Manchester United and Real Madrid are two footballing superpowers that have been linked with a move for Vardy in recent times. Although the latter outfit having an interest seems rather fanciful, especially as Vardy enters the unavoidable sporting twilight era.

Nevertheless, stories are continued to be written. The latest concerns Juventus and the Fox. This rumour has been dismissed, as Sport Witness explains.

When the latest unnecessary seeming international break is complete, Leicester will travel to Merseyside for an intense clash with EPL champions Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp is likely to be without quite a few of his starting eleven for the match, including England star Trent Alexander-Arnold – read more here.
