Leicester City defender Harry Maguire is reportedly desperate to join Manchester United before the end of this transfer window.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Mirror which claimed that Harry Maguire wants Leicester City to accept the latest bid from Manchester United.

It was revealed that the latest bid from Manchester United is £70m plus £10m totalling £80m.

Leicester City are holding out for £90m plus £5m in add-ons totalling £95m.

Harry Maguire will definitely be the most expensive defender in the history of world football if Manchester United manage to secure his transfer after a protracted saga.

For now, Maguire is still a Leicester City defender though Manchester United have less than a week to sign him for the new season billed to start on Friday, August 9.

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk is the current recipient for the best defender in world football after the Reds spent £75m to sign him from fellow Premier League club Southampton.

His signing has been an inspired one for Liverpool as he played a crucial role in their Champions League triumph from last season.

Van Dijk and Liverpool emerged European champions at the end of last season.
