Harry Maguire

Former Premier League champions Leicester City have told fellow top flight side Manchester United the transfer fee needed to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire.

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United will have to pay at least £90m for them to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer.

The said amount will be a record bid for a defender surpassing the £75m paid by Liverpool to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton at the start of last year.

England international Maguire is the top transfer target for Manchester United this summer in their quest to sign a quality centre back this summer.

The Red Devils have already had a £70m turned down for Harry Maguire.

Manchester United conceded over 50 goals in the Premier League last season in addition to just seven clean sheets all season and senior club officials are keen to address their defensive issues before the new season starts in August.

The Red Devils are not the only club interested in Harry Maguire.

The former Sheffield United and Hull City defender is also a defensive target for city rivals Manchester City.

The Citizens are looking to sign a new defender to replace former club captain Vincent Kompany who left the club last month upon the expiration of his contract at the Etihad Stadium.
