Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri isn't concerning himself with speculation about Danny Drinkwater being linked with a return to Manchester United.
There are suggestions that the midfielder is being lined up for a £30 million switch to Old Trafford in January.
The England international never played for United in a first-team game, after coming through the youth ranks there, although he spent time on loan elsewhere.
He then made the move to Leicester in 2012 where he has become an integral member of a squad that achieved promotion to the Premier League, then survival and a title victory last season.
Ranieri told Sky Sports News, that the Drinkwater to Man United speculation is just that: Speculation.
"I think this is speculation and also when you grow up, it's normal that a lot of big teams want you," he said.
