Manchester United have had a £70m bid rejected for Leicester City and England defender Harry Maguire, according to reports.

The bid is United’s second for Maguire, with their initial £65m bid being rejected by the Foxes and the Three Lions international looks to be the club’s number one target for central defence.

Sky Sports report that the 26-year-old wants a move to Old Trafford and he has informed Leicester of his wish, though it’s understood Maguire will not attempt to force any transfer this summer.

The Red Devils are also facing competition from rivals Manchester City, who can offer Maguire Champions League football – something United can’t whilst playing Europa League football – whilst also playing under Pep Guardiola. However, United reported to be leading the race for the defender’s signature.

Leicester are wanting any deal for Maguire to eclipse Virgil van Dijk’s £75m move to Liverpool, a move that later saw Jürgen Klopp’s side go on to win the Champions League and narrowly miss out of the Premier League title with the Dutchman transforming the Reds defence after arriving at Anfield. United’s £45m signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka has also increased their valuation of Maguire, given the right-back’s lack of international experience and having only featured in two Premier League campaign’s. A move for Maguire is unlikely to happen without United spending big, though given the current options for central defence, it’s a transfer that may need to happen.
