There are reports suggesting Leicester will demand a £4m loan fee for clubs wishing to sign Islam Slimani, who has been linked with Manchester United and Tottenham this month.
The Algerian is currently on loan at Monaco from the Foxes but has been linked with a departure from the Ligue 1 side, having been reduced to a bit part role at Stade Louis II.
According to the Daily Mail, United have enquired over the possibility of taking Slimani on loan but have been told it will set them back £4m if they wish to complete the deal.
He only scored eight goals in 35 appearances for Leicester and has been loaned out to Newcastle as well as Fenerbahce. At Monaco, the 31-year-old has scored seven goals in 14 appearances in all competitions but does not regularly start for the Ligue 1 side.
Marcus Rashford is expected to be out for a couple of months with a double stress fracture in his lower back, an injury he aggravated during an FA Cup replay against Wolverhampton Wanderers when he was brought off the bench.
Other reports have also linked Manchester United to former super Eagles forward, Jude Ighalo. The Red Devils are looking for a quick fix for their striking problems.
