Claude Puel: I am confident about keeping Harry Maguire

Leicester City coach Claude Puel said that he is confident of keeping England's 2018 World Cup star Harry Maguire in the club for the upcoming season.

Leicester City are poised to offer Harry Maguire a new deal worth £95,000-per-week to stave off interest from Manchester United, according to the Daily Express. His performances earned him acall-up for England's World Cup squad.

Perennial Man United transfer targets Raphael Varane and Jerome Boateng were also on the pile, though prising the former away from the Bernabeu would be near-impossible right now and the latter appears more likely to move to Paris Saint-Germain if anywhere.

"I think we can keep both players", Puel recently told reporters.

Puel added that Maguire's displays for his club last season meant he was "not surprised" by the defender's performances in Russian Federation.

"The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt ... was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC". CNBC noted Mueller in 2011 ended his membership at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia after a fee dispute.

The Foxes have insisted that Maguire is not for sale for any price, but Manchester United seem to still be pursuing the England global. It was not a surprise to see him perform well at this level in the worldwide game.

Foxes boss Claude Puel is desperate to avoid a repeat of the circus which surrounded Riyad Mahrez before he eventually got his £60m move to Manchester City.

Leaving Newcastle for Leicester would not be a step up for the 24-year-old, even though the Foxes recently won the Premier League title and finished a place above Rafael Benitez's side in the league table last season.

"If we lose a player just a few days before the beginning of the season without the ability to replace him". "He (Maguire) can continue to perform with Leicester and improve and that is the important thing always with a young player".
