Though it’s claimed United are ‘very interested’ in Pereira, the Portugal international is yet to be contacted over a possible move to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils signed Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for a fee of £45million in the summer but Solskjaer is still keen to strengthen in this area, with Diogo Dalot and Ashley Young his only other options at right-back.

United have also identified Pereira’s Leicester team-mate James Maddison as a target as the club scours the market for attacking reinforcements.

Both Arsenal and Liverpool were heavily linked with Pereira before his £21million switch from Porto to the King Power Stadium in May 2018.

Leicester boss Rodgers insists the club have no intention of selling any players this winter.

‘We have absolutely no plans to lose anyone in January,’ he said last month.

‘Our job is to keep what we have.

‘If there’s an opportunity to improve the squad we will look to do that. If not, we will carry on with the squad we have, which is very strong.’
