Former Premier League champions Leicester City have reportedly slammed a world-record transfer fee on one of their defenders.
England international centre back Harry Maguire has been a key player for Leicester City since his move to the King Power Stadium two years ago and he has been attracting the interest from the big boys in the Premier League.
Manchester City and Manchester United want to sign the former Sheffield United centre back this summer but they have a big battle on their hands after Leicester City slammed a £90m price tag on him.

- Finally, Hazard can now move to Real Madrid
- After James capture, one of these 3 players will join Man United
The said price tag would be a world-record transfer fee for a defender thus beating the £75m fee paid for Dutch international player Virgil Van Dijk.
Liverpool signed Van Dijk for the world-record fee from fellow Premier League club Southampton at the start of last year.
The aforementioned report claimed that Premier League champions Manchester City have baulked at the £90m asking price from the Foxes thus leaving Manchester United as the clear favourites.
Manchester United had one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League during the just concluded season and the Red Devils want to sign a quality centre back to improve that record ahead of next season.
