Leicester will allow Harry Maguire to move to Man United on one condition – report

Manchester City Not Yet Ruled Out of Harry Maguire Chase Pete O'Rourke Jul 16th, 2019

United are coming off a sixth-place finish last season, a hard campaign seeing them end up 32 points adrift of champions and rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United may finally be able to land their target, English central defender Harry Maguire, who now plays for Leicester City and has had an impressive few seasons with club and country.

If Manchester United do sign Maguire, the club should sell at least two of their centre backs, which could be the English duo of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, who have not really reached the potential that many expected them to achieve when they were signed all those years ago.

Man Utd are allegedly leading rivals City in the race to sign Maguire.

In further comments published by the Leicester Mercury, Rodgers added, "I respect and understand that if a team like Manchester United or Manchester City are interested. There's obviously been a lot of speculation surrounding him but we're relaxed about it".

Maguire played 45-minutes in the Foxes' pre-season friendly against Scunthorpe last night and Rodgers says the defender is remaining professional.

Manchester United is thought to be Maguire's preferred destination, but Pep Guardiola is also searching for a replacement for departed captain Vincent Kompany.

Manchester United have already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer transfer window so far.
