Leicester City defender Harry Maguire missed training on Monday as doubts linger on his future at the club.

According to Sky Sports, the Manchester United target called in sick (via text message) on Monday morning.

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

The 26-year-old has been attracting the interest of the Manchester clubs.

Manchester United and Manchester City made respective bids for Harry Maguire but none has met the £80m asking price from Leicester City.

Manchester City have already been priced out of the race for him as the Citizens are willing to spend just £60m on him thus leaving Manchester United in the race for the England international centre back.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to sign Harry Maguire before the end of the Premier League transfer window next week as he tries to improve his team defensively.

The Red Devils had one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League during the last campaign after conceding a whopping 54 goals over the course of the season.

Manchester United are long-term admirers of Harry Maguire dating back to last summer and the Red Devils have had the latest bid of £70m turned down.
