Premier League giants Manchester United are still a long way from reaching an agreement for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer.

According to the publication from the stables of Manchester Evening News (MEN), Harry Maguire is far from being a Manchester United player with the Foxes keen to get as much money for the defender.

Manchester United are keen to correct their defensive issues from the last campaign with the signing of a new centre back.

The Red Devils conceded a whopping 54 goals in 38 Premier League games in the last campaign.

Their defensive issues led to sixth place at the end of the last Premier League season.

Manchester United have emerged as the front-runner to sign Harry Maguire this summer.

Premier League champions Manchester City are also interested in the England international centre back but it seems like they have been priced out of a move for him.

Harry Maguire has already told Leicester City officials that he wants to leave the club this summer.

He became a Leicester City player in the summer of 2017 following his move from Hull City.

Manchester United recently had a £70m bid rejected for the defender with Leicester City holding out for more than £80m.
