Manchester United have agreed a £80m deal for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire, according to reports.
The Sun claims Maguire is set to fly to Manchester for his medical tomorrow.
It is reported that United will pay the Foxes £60m for Maguire, with an extra £20m available in add-ons.
If true, Maguire could end up costing more than what Liverpool paid (£75m) for Virgil van Dijk in 2018.
While Maguire would improve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defence, we’re talking money you’d only expect to spend on the best options out there. The England international is not one of the best.
United have already had a £70m bid rejected by Leicester for Maguire, as per talkSPORT, so there’s no hiding the fact they want to sign him this summer.
However, the Mirror ran a report this morning suggesting Maguire is fuming with the Foxes for pricing him out a deal.
But depending on how Leicester respond to these reports, Maguire could soon be a United player.
We’re still hoping Axel Tuanzebe pushes for a spot in the team this season.
