Manchester United outbid rivals but Leicester City reject Harry Maguire offer

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United have reportedly outbid their rivals Manchester City in the chase for Leicester City star Harry Maguire.

Both Manchester clubs are keen on improving their defence ahead of crucially important seasons for different reasons.

While United desperately need to steady the ship and improve on last season’s failure, City are hoping to continue establishing their dynasty.

Maguire would certainly help in either agenda but it appears Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been rejected by Leicester despite them outbidding City.

The Englishman could yet complete a move to Old Trafford but it will definitely not be smooth sailing at all.

It’s understood the fee the Foxes are looking for is beyond the £75m Liverpool spent on Virgil van Dijk which is certainly a hefty amount.

Whether Manchester United are serious enough to part ways remains to be seen but Maguire has definitely split fans’ opinions.

Some feel Eric Bailly should be given a chance to prove his fitness and show he is the right man to partner Victor Lindelof in defence.

Others feel a top centre-back is needed but it’s not Harry while the last opinion is that the former Hull star’s asking price is way over value with cheaper options available on the market.
