Premier League giants Manchester United have submitted a fresh bid for one of their defensive targets.

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has emerged as a top defensive transfer target for the Red Devils this summer.

According to TalkSport, Leicester City have submitted a bid of £80m for him.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign a new centre back before the end of this transfer window.

The Norwegian tactician wants to sign a new centre back in a bid to add more defensive qualities to the team and also correct the defensive mistakes from the last campaign.

Harry Maguire fits the bill for a new centre back at Manchester United and the club is keen to wrap up a deal for the England international defender before the transfer window ends in a week’s time.

Manchester United have given Leicester City until Monday to accept the newest bid.

Harry Maguire became a Leicester City player in the summer of 2017 after he joined the Foxes from second tier club Hull City shortly after their relegation from the Premier League.

Leicester City have paid £17m for the 26-year-old centre back.

Harry Maguire is now a key player for the Foxes.
