According to Sky Sports, Leicester City do not want to sell one of their best players, meaning that it will take a bid in excess of £30 million to prize the England global away from the King Power Stadium.

Chelsea have already landed holding midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco this summer but Blues boss Antonio Conte is said to be a big fan of Drinkwater and believes that the former Manchester United youngster offers something different to his side.

He is eager to re-form Drinkwater's impressive partnership with N'Golo Kante as the pair were a formidable combination before the Frenchman left the King Power Stadium previous year to move to Stamford Bridge, where he was a major factor as the Blues stormed to the title.

"Competition only makes you better".

However, it looks like Man Utd are ready to trump their rivals as the Independent is citing a report from SFR Sport that claims Mourinho has now registered his interest in signing the attacker. But I'm ready in every case to continue to work with the players we have'. "I think that there were not enough of us in midfield, especially with all the competitions we will be playing in, so we needed another midfielder to reinforce the team, so it is a very good thing that he is coming, that he is joining us".
