Harry Maguire is confident he will be a Manchester United player before the start of the Premier League season. The Red Devils have enquired about the availability of the Leicester City man, who is valued at £65 millionAnd he is sure the deal will be done before United’s Premier League game of the season…against the Foxes. According to the Daily Mirror, the defender is extremely ambitious and is set to reject his current club’s new £100,000-a-week contract offer.
Maguire only joined Leicester from relegated Hull City last summer in a £17 million. But after starring for England at the World Cup in Russia (where he helped Gareth Southgate’s men reach the semi-finals) he has his heart set on a move. The report goes on to claim the commanding centre-back was attracting the attention of the likes of United and Manchester City before the tournament in Russia. During the Carabao Cup quarter-final against City, Pep Guardiola commended the former Sheffield United man on the pitch for his display.
United are in the market for a ball-playing defender after selling Daley Blind back to Ajax earlier this month. Although they were interested in Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld, a deal between the two parties looks incredibly unlikely to happen. Daniel Levy has refused to trade with the Premier League side since 2008
