It has been reported that a certain manager will reject any potential approach from newly mega-rich Newcastle United as he believes he is in line to replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
According to the Daily Mail, Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will ignore interest from the Magpies should he be approached in the coming weeks or months.
Rodgers is reportedly among the long list of managers the Toon are looking at to replace Steve Bruce, but it is believed that he could potentially succeed Guardiola at the Etihad in 18 months' time.
It has been claimed the former Swansea and Liverpool manager has admirers at the Premier League champions, and was considered for the job in 2013 when Roberto Mancini departed the club.
Guardiola, meanwhile, has been in charge of the Citizens since 2016, and is expected to move on from the club when his contract officially expires in 2023 should he not decide to extend his stay in England.
Rodgers, it is said, was close to joining Mancini's coaching staff at City in 2009, but narrowly missed out on the opportunity when the Italian insisted on David Platt and Brian Kidd instead.
The Northern Irish coach's most successful spell on the sidelines came during his three-year spell at Celtic in Scotland, where he claimed seven trophies. With Leicester, he clinched last season's FA Cup trophy following a win over Chelsea in the final at Wembley Stadium.
