Leicester City hierarchies are desperately set to prevent Manchester United from signing their defender Harry Maguire this season as they have reportedly offered him a new deal.
According to reports via Daily Mirror this morning, the Foxes board members have decided to offer the England international a ‘double-your-money’ contract this summer so as to retain his services for more season.
It is believed that the Red Devils are doing all they could to capture the 25-year-old defender before the transfer window comes to a close in the next eight days.
Harry Maguire currently receives £50k as weekly wages but the British media claims that the Foxes are ready to offer him a five-year contract which will see his weekly wages increases to £95k.
However, Mourinho was said to have offered a £65m bid for his signature but the former Premier League Champions are not willing to sanction his move to Old Trafford except they receive £80m offer for the young man, who was solid at the back for the Three Lions in Russia.
Apart from his great outings in Russia, Maguire is a strong and hard tackler who rarely got injured. During the previous campaign, the former Hull City defender played 45 matches in all competitions for the Foxes without any form of injury or complacency.
It was surprising how quickly things turned around for the Leicester defender, who cost just £17m a season ago while playing for Hull City in the Championship.
