Manchester United could be beneficiaries of the latest Premier League FFP sanction, this time on Premiership side Leicester City.

It was announced on Thursday evening that the club have been charged by the league for an alleged breach of Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSRs) and for failing to submit their financial accounts to the top flight.

The charge will now be heard by the independent commission, with a points deduction at the start of next season a possibility if they are promoted and found to have breached regulations.

Leicester released a strong statement saying that it’s ‘surprised’ by the actions and will ‘defend itself from any unlawful acts by the football authorities.’

It has been previously reported that Leicester City were close to reaching the limit for the period ending this season which means they could be forced to sell players especially if they get promoted.

This is where Man United and other Premier League clubs could benefit.

A report by 90min alleges that Man United are very interested in Leicester midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. The club has even made an initial inquiry to the player’s camp.

The midfielder was the subject of interest from Brighton back in the January window, but Leicester are said to have rejected a £20 million bid out of hand, with the Foxes asking for a price of £45m.

The report adds that if they are promoted, then Leicester’s asking price in the summer will be £40 million, the same fee that Tottenham paid for James Maddison last summer.

However, if they remain in the Championship, then the asking price to drop as low as a guaranteed £25 million.

Dewsbury-Hall has played in all but one of Leicester’s 36 Championship games this season, scoring ten times and providing 12 assists. He will have three years remaining on his contract at the King Power Stadium when the summer comes around.
