Manchester United make £70m bid for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire

Manchester United make £70m bid for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire

After not having a great season at the Premier League, Ole Gunner Solskjaer is aiming to rebuild his side.

Daily Mail also reports that the 26-year-old is content at the King Power Stadium and will not try to force through a move, although he had previously expressed interest in joining United's local rivals Manchester City this summer. Since joining Leicester City in the summer of 2017, the English global has only continued his upward trajectory, winning the club's Player of the Year at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony thinks that Manchester City and Manchester United should be paying £100m to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City given the current state of the market.

The centre-back was a target for former Man United manager Jose Mourinho last summer but the club were put off by Leicester's valuation.

The deal to take the Dutchman from Southampton to Anfield in January of previous year made him the most expensive defender in history. Until now, both City and United had offered Manchester United Launches £65m fee to the footballer.

Manchester United is turning to the East Midlands in an attempt to further bolster its defence. But now the Red Devils have gone one step ahead and escalated their fee.

Maguire, who is now on holiday, has been concerned at the prospect of Leicester pricing him out of a move away from the King Power Stadium.

The Cityzens were said to be the frontrunners in this transfer pursuit, as they look to sign the England global as a readymade replacement for Vincent Kompany.

Maguire also has three years of Premier League experience, so he would not need much time to settle in. Maguire had produced a series of good performance including FIFA World Cup 2018, EPL and so on.
