Harry Maguire is set to miss Leicester's friendly against Atalanta amid interest in the defender from Manchester United, according to Sky sources.
The England defender has made it clear to Leicester that he wants to join Manchester United.
United are prepared to pay £80m, but Sky Sports News has been told that Leicester want £85m, United do not want to spend that much on the centre-back.
Leicester's position has not changed, the Foxes do not want to sell Maguire unless someone is prepared to meet their valuation.
Maguire is determined to remain professional but he is completely frustrated at the situation and will not play in Leicester's friendly against Atalanta on August 2.
That is a joint decision taken by Leicester, Brendan Rodgers and Maguire because these are not the right circumstances for him to play.
The 26-year-old did start in Rodgers' side's 2-1 victory over Stoke on July 27.
