Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says he can understand Harry Maguire left the club.
United signed Maguire for #80m – a world-record commission for a guardian.
The former Liverpool manager said his team and United have a exceptional appeal.
“They [Liverpool and United] will be the two largest clubs in the nation. There are several other great and big clubs but these two are above everyone else,” he said.
“When players get the opportunity to go to one of those clubs and also to experience that type of stress and anticipation – and of course there’ll be a financial side to it too, where you can proceed and double your salary – then that package, in a quick career and in Harry’s age, is possibly too tough to turn down.
“And I know – I buy it.”
Despite Maguire’s departure, the Foxes have been directed by Rodgers to third in the Premier League to the effort and he thinks they can start to challenge the clubs’ dominance.
“I’ve been lucky enough having been in Liverpool, and that I know the draw that sort of club gets,” Rodgers continuing.
“What we are building here in Leicester is exciting, even with the new training ground and the way we’re attempting to advance on the field, but for many gamers who draw is still there and that I know it.”
Leicester journey to face United in the Premier League and now Rodgers is mindful of the task his side faces to the season compared to their competitors.
Rodgers added:”They [United] may not have attained what they’d have enjoyed over the last couple of years but it is still a very difficult spot to go and I am conscious that Leicester have not won at Old Trafford in 21 decades.”
