Manchester United look at Vardy

Jose Mourinho's pre-match press conference ahead of Monday's game against Stoke City will take place at 5pm today, where he will address stories linking him with a move for Sanchez.

In order to relieve pressure on £75m hitman Romelu Lukaku, signing another frontman is on United's agenda.

Manchester United will back out of a move for Jamie Vardy due to Leicester City's valuation of the England striker.

The Red Devils have expressed an interest in the 31-year-old, who has shown he is a reliable goalscorer in the Premier League.

The striker snubbed Arsenal to stay at the King Power on a new £100,000-a-week deal after Euro 2016 is a guaranteed starter every week and enjoys a close relationship with the fans.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn't the only big player Mourinho was talking about today.

As a result, the Leicester Mercury add Mourinho is focusing on other targets.

Manchester United have also thrown their hat into the ring in the pursuit of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, who has been strongly linked with a move to league leaders Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho would be open to bolstering his attacking options this month, although a left back remains his priority, and Hernandez and Vardy have emerged as targets on top of Alexis Sanchez, according to the Telegraph.

And that stance is likely to have been strengthened by Leicester's desire not to sell unless the 20-time English champions submit an "extraordinary" offer for Vardy.

The England global has been in fine form for the Foxes this term, scoring nine Premier League goals to date.
