Premier League giants Manchester United will have to break their transfer record twice to sign their top two defensive targets.

This is according to a publication from the stables of  London Evening Standard.

It was revealed that Manchester United want to sign the defensive duo of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka plays his club football for London side Crystal Palace at the moment, while Harry Maguire has been on the Leicester City books since his transfer from English Championship club Hull City in 2017.

Manchester United have already had a big bid rejected for Aaron Wan-Bissaka with Crystal Palace holding out for £60m.

The Red Devils made a £35m bid for him rising to £40m with add-ons and they are hopeful that they can sign the England junior international for £50m.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has enjoyed a meteoric rise last year after a superb debut campaign for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

For Maguire, Manchester United were interested in him last summer only to baulk at the £60m-70m asking price from Leicester City but they have to pay more for him this summer.

Leicester City are holding out for £90m but an £80m bid would be enough for them to sanction his sale amidst the interest from both Manchester United and Manchester City.
