Premier League giants Manchester United have failed in their bid to lure Leicester City defender Harry Maguire away from the club this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are yet to fulfill the payment structure suitable for Leicester City to sanction the sale of £80m defender Harry Maguire.

Manchester United had earlier made a £70m bid for Harry Maguire only for it to be rejected.

The aforementioned report revealed that Manchester United are willing to meet the £80m demand from Leicester City for Harry Maguire but the Foxes want a big percentage of the transfer fee upfront.

This condition has held up a move for Harry Maguire who has been linked with Manchester United for the majority of this summer.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to rectify the defensive issues from last season.

The Red Devils conceded 54 goals in the Premier League last season and it was one of the worst defensive records in the top ten.

Harry Maguire has been at Leicester City for two years following his move from English Championship side Hull City shortly after their relegation from the top flight.

Leicester City were said to have paid around £17m for the English international centre back.
