Manchester United and their neighbours Manchester City are not just competing for the League title, they are also competing for 24-year-old Leicester city defender Harry Maguire in the summer.
Having revealed his plan not to chase a striker in the next transfer market, José Mourinho is planning on improving his midfield and his backline position.
In his bid to bolster the two segments, José Mourinho is monitoring Maguire’s performance with the Foxes this season and he is impressed with what he has seen so far.
Just like Mourinho, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is eyeing a summer move for the player.
Despite signing Laporte in the winter transfer window, Pep Guardiola seems not contended with his backline quality so he is aiming to beat United to the player’s signature when the transfer period returns.
The in-form defender who moved to the King Power Stadium at the Start this season as scored two goals and four assists in 26 appearances for the former Premier League Champions.
He was in action for the Foxes in Saturday’s heavy defeat to League leaders Manchester City who are in their best ever form.
Maguire is reportedly set to cost both teams £50million if they must succeed in luring him out of Claude Puel’s team.
