Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has denied claims a deal has been agreed for central defender Harry Maguire after reports had suggested so.
Maguire, who has been the subject of strong interest from Manchester United, is said to want a move to Old Trafford although is not prepared to force one.
United had their latest bid of £70m rejected with the Foxes said to be demanding a fee in the region of £85m, however, Gianluca Di Marzio had reported that a deal for Magure was in it’s ‘final stages’ and Leciester were prepared to let the 26-year-old leave the club.
Rodgers, in an interview with BBC Leicester Sport, Rodgers denied the reports, saying: “I’m obviously relaxed with it. It is what it is. The player has been first class with his attitude in his training. The club hasn’t changed its stance in terms of the valuation for the player.”
“As of this day, the valuation for Harry hasn’t been met that would trigger any communication with the player and the other club. For me, John Rudkin and Susan Whelan are doing a great job in relation to that. There’s no change,” the former Celtic man added.
United are continuing their chase for Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes and a surprise move for Paulo Dybala is also developing with Romelu Lukaku going to other way. With less than two weeks left before Deadline Day, Ed Woodward has a busy week ahead.
