Manchester United make £70m bid for Maguire

Manchester United make £70m bid for Maguire Manchester United have stepped up their pursuit of Leicester City defender Harry Maguire by tabling a bid of £70million for the 26-year-old. United and rivals Manchester City have both expressed an interest in signing Maguire this summer, with the Red Devils reigniting their interest in the defender after failing to land the England international last summer. And according to Sky Sports, United have offered Leicester £70million for Maguire as they look to beat rivals City in the race to land the 26-year-old.

Leicester City have been handed a boost in their bid to keep Harry Maguire, with Manchester United said to be some way from agreeing a deal to sign the defender, according to ESPN.

The England international has informed the Foxes of his desire to leave the club this summer, with the centre-back eyeing a move to either the Red Devils or their neighbours Manchester City.

Maguire is a man in demand, and Leicester are believed to value him at £80 million, meaning that any deal would have to involve a record-breaking sum for a defender.

Manchester United are confident about their chances of signing the former Hull City star, according to ESPN’s report, but they are still ‘miles’ away from agreeing a fee with the Foxes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are understood to be willing to offer £60 million for Maguire, which still falls £20 million short of Leicester’s valuation.

No deal or breakthrough in negotiations is close, ESPN claims, which will come as a boost for Brendan Rodgers as he looks to keep hold of the towering central defender.

Manchester United could offer Jones as part of Maguire deal.
Manchester United are reportedly considering offering Phil Jones to Leicester as part of a deal for Harry Maguire this summer. According to The Telegraph, Jones is being considered as a potential makeweight in a move for Maguire, as United look to bring the Leicester man to Old Trafford ahead of next season. Leicester are thought to want a fee that exceeds the £75m Liverpool paid for Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton in January 2018, although that could change if United offer Jones in exchange.
