Manchester United will look to sign Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire

When it comes to the transfer market, Manchester United are simply one of the best in the business.

It’s claimed by British media that Manchester United will look to sign Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire.

The England international joined Leicester City from Hull City for a fee in the region of 14 million euros in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.

Harry Maguire has scored two goals in 44 games for Leicester City since joining the club.

The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in England.

As a member of England national football team, Maguire won 12 caps and he scored one goal.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho is looking to shore up his defensive options and Leicester City’s Harry Maguire happens to be a target.

The report claims that Manchester United manager has extensively scouted Harry Maguire and is considering a move for the centre-back.

Manchester United are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

According to Teamtalk, “Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to make a £65m move for Leicester defender Harry Maguire, according to reports. The Mail on Sunday claims the United manager has made the Leicester and England defender his No 1 target this summer – and is prepared to offload one of Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo or Eric Bailly first to part finance the deal. Maguire has emerged as one of the world’s best centre-halves this summer on the back of England’s progress to the World Cup semi-finals and, while the Foxes are prepared to raise his pay to £75,000 a week, they know they won’t be able to compete with the riches he could earn at Old Trafford. However, Mourinho would need to free up a space in his squad for Maguire first and the Mail claims the United boss will sacrifice one of his central defensive favourites in order to make room for the Leicester man.”

Leicester City are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the centre-back, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

The England international will definitely be a good addition to the Manchester United side, which will be competing in the Champions League next season.

Manchester United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this summer.
