Speaking to Russian sports channel Match TV, CSKA boss Leonid Slutsky said: "The British club offered a bit less than €30million (£22.86million).

"A few days ago, Musa approached me and asked: 'When is he [Claudio Ranieri] back from holiday?' I told him: 'I am not Ranieri, I do not know.

"I do not know for sure [if Leicester have resumed negotiations] because these negotiations are dealt with by management, but I think the probability is very high."
