Man United prepare to sign Harry Maguire

Manchester United boss JOSE MOURINHO ramped up his interest in Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Leicester’s Maguire as well as Tottenham’s Alderweireld, while defender Marcus Rojo could reportedly leave the club for Everton.

Maguire, 25, played a crucial role in England’s journey to the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and Sky Sports understands that Mourinho wants to sign the England international before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

The centre-back joined the Foxes from Hull City last summer and was awarded the player of the season in his debut campaign.

It’s believed that the East Midlands will ask for a fee around €80m for Maguire that Liverpool paid for Virgil Van Dijk back in January.

Manchester United have already spent over £70m in the current transfer window on Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.
