Premier League champions Manchester City still retain an interest in Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer according to the latest reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom (UK).
Manchester City and Manchester United were in a two-way battle for the England international player before the Citizens were said to have pulled out thus leaving the Red Devils in pole position.
The Premier League champions were frustrated by the £90m asking price slammed on Harry Maguire.
According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester City still retain an interest in the England international centre back.
For now, Manchester United are the most likely destination for Harry Maguire this summer.
The Red Devils will definitely have to pay a world-record fee for a defender if they want to sign the former Sheffield United star this summer.
Manchester United have already had a £70m bid turned down for the player and that’s just £5m away from the present record by Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.
Dutch international Van Dijk is the most expensive defender in world football.
Harry Maguire could take that record if he moves to Manchester United who are desperate to sign a new centre back this summer after the poor defensive display from last season.
