Manchester United and Chelsea are both monitoring Leicester striker Jamie Vardy’s contract situation, according to 90min.com journalist Graeme Bailey.
The 35-year-old, who has scored 133 goals in the Premier League for the Foxes, has less than a year remaining on his current deal, and Bailey claims United and Chelsea are considering a move for the veteran forward:

United could certainly do with strengthening their forward options, but you would have to think that Vardy would only be considered if Cristiano Ronaldo forced a move away from Old Trafford.
Despite being in his mid-30s, Vardy has still not lost any of his pace, which has brought him plenty of goals over the years, but he would surely only be a short-term solution.
It seems Erik ten Hag’s side are also considering a much younger alternative to Vardy, with reports this week suggesting that the Manchester club have held talks about signing Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko.
