Manchester United manager José Mourinho is keenly interested in Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer.

The Foxes center-back is gaining much recognition from fans pundits and managers as results of his performance for the Three Lions in Russia.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid have been linked with his services ahead of the 2018-19 season but Mourinho believes he has all it takes to bring the £50m-rated defender to Old Trafford ahead of his competitors.

Jose Mourinho battled lots of injury problems at the back throughout last season and he is ready to prevent that from reoccurring in the upcoming season as he has reportedly set his eyes on defenders who are known as strong and injury-free players including Leonardo Bonucci and the 25-year-old English man

Toby Alderweireld was initially the Portuguese prime target but it seems Tottenham are asking too much for the Belgian signature.

According to Manchester Evening News last week, the former Real Madrid boss is still interested in getting the Belgian’s service but not as main target this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester united played a goalless draw against San Jose Earthquakes in one of their pre-season matches played yesterday.

The Red Devils still have to come up against Bayern, AC Milan and City before the start of next season.
