A report claims that Manchester United are willing to match Leicester City’s valuation of Harry Maguire and are now looking to persuade the defender to join this summer.
Manchester United are reportedly confident of winning the race to sign Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire, despite facing competition from Manchester City.
The England international is rumoured to be at the centre of a transfer tug-of-war between the Premier League heavyweights.
Leicester are said to value Maguire in excess of £80m which, according to the Daily Mail, has all but ruled City out of the running as they are unwilling to go higher than £50m.
United are prepared to hand over that amount, however, and the report indicates that the Red Devils now need to persuade the 26-year-old to join them.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men, who conceded more goals last season than any other campaign in the last 40 years, have already moved to bring in winger Daniel James from Swansea City during the off-season.
