Harry Maguire Set For Contract Extension.
England international defender Harry Maguire, who has been in awesome form for the Three Lions since the start of the ongoing World Cup in Russia, could be offered a new contract before the end of the month by Leicester City.
The player is one of the standout performers in this year’s edition of the world’s greatest football fiesta and his display hasn’t gone unnoticed by top clubs.
According to reports via the Sun, Manchester United manager José Mourinho has developed an interest in the 25-year-old player as he finds a way to upgrade his defensive abilities ahead of the coming season.
However, the Red Devils might fail in their bid to capture the former Hull City defender as reports claimed that the Foxes are set to offer him a five-year contract which will earn him £75k as weekly wages.
Maguire currently receives £45k every seven days but his blistering performance in Russia has skyrocketed his market value.
With Eric Baily and Marcos Rojo tipped to be heading out of Old Trafford, Mourinho is left with no other options but to make a swift move for the player’s signature this summer.
According to the Sun, Mourinho will need to release nothing less than £75m for the player if he must beat his rivals to his signature.
