The Russian champions have rejected the English Premier League leader’s improved £18.7m bid for the Nigerian skipper.
Leicester FC have had a new bid of $26.5m (£18.7) which was an improvement on the original offer of $21.6m (£15.1m) turned down by CSKA Moscow for Ahmed Musa.
The Russian club are believed to be holding out for nothing less than £20m for their prized asset.
The Nigeria captain has also attracted the attention of other top Premier League teams and has a $32.5m (£22.8m) buyout clause in his
His current deal with CSKA Moscow runs until 2019.
Musa, who made his international debut against Madagascar in September 2010, is only just 23 but has already scored twice at the World Cup. Ahmed Musa had a fantastic outing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
He scored Nigeria’s fastest-ever goal at a World Cup – netting after four minutes – before becoming their first player to score twice in one game at the tournament.
Contrary to reports circulating late on Friday however, CSKA Moscow have not received an offer from Man Utd for the Nigeria international.
Leicester may however have moved quickly to Plan B as the Foxes already have a bid for Chelsea’s Loic Remy accepted.
