Leicester reject United's £70m bid for Maguire

Leicester reject United's £70m bid for Maguire”

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.

While he has not submitted a transfer request, Stone notes that Leicester understands that the 26-year-old Maguire would welcome a new challenge.

Manchester United will have to pay more than £90 million for Harry Maguire and make him the most expensive defender of all time if they are to sign the Leicester City man this summer.

United have already signed youngsters Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Swansea and Crystal Palace respectively.

According to Sky Sports, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have emerged favourites to sign the England global ahead of Manchester City after upping their bid to £70milion for the player on Tuesday.

Sky Sports News and the BBC claim that, while talks between the two clubs continue, Leicester have turned down United's latest offer of £70m for the England worldwide.

United have also enquired about West Ham defender Issa Diop, who could be seen as a cheaper alternative.

A native of Sheffield, Maguire has spent the last two seasons at Leicester following a £12 million move from Hull City.

It would surpass the £89.3m the Red Devils paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016 by £700,000.

The English news agency further adds that Aiyawatt Shrivaddhanaprabha, the owner of Leicester City, will only agree to sell the English centre-back if they receive a bid in excess of the £75million price that Champions League winners Liverpool paid Southampton for Dutchman Virgil van Dijk in 2018 January.

Maguire was also targeted by United last summer after a successful World Cup with England but, despite Jose Mourinho urging a move, the club were put off by Leicester's price tag.
