Danny Drinkwater to Man United reports don't worry Claudio Ranieri

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is relaxed about reports linking Danny Drinkwater with Manchester United and stressed the club have no intention of selling the midfielder.

Drinkwater, 26, has been linked with a return to United, whom he left in 2012, despite him signing a new long-term contract with the Premier League champions this summer.

Ranieri, whose side travel to Old Trafford on Saturday, said: "I'm very surprised because often it happens one month before the market and not now.

"[Drinkwater] signed a new contract and everything is normal. I think he doesn't have a clause. We don't want to sell anybody. We want to keep our players.

"When I have a player who is wanted by big teams I am very happy because that means we are working very well.

"Sometimes I say maybe the newspaper doesn't have some news and they write some news -- this is OK. That is my idea."

Drinkwater has made 153 league starts for Leicester and helped the club claim the title last season with a series of impressive performances in midfield.
