The 31-year-old Algeria international striker is on loan at AS Monaco from the Foxes at the moment.
The Daily Mail has now claimed that Premier League giants United have made an enquiry about securing the services of Slimani.
The report has added that Leicester want a loan fee of £4 million for the striker - who has scored seven goals and provided seven assists in 13 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco so far this season, according to WhoScored.
With United now reportedly interested, it is hard to see Villa get Slimani before the Red Devils.
With the Villans struggling for survival in the Premier League and United aiming to finish in the top four, it is logical to expect the striker to choose the Red Devils over Dean Smith’s side.
