Leicester are in danger of losing Harry Maguire this summer with Manchester City weighing up a move to make him their replacement for Vincent Kompany, per The Metro.
A possible move away for Maguire has been circulating for a considerable period of time now with Manchester United showing an interest in the centre-back previously.
The 26-year-old made quite the impression at the World Cup last summer, turning in some outstanding performances which arguably were enough to warrant a move to one of the Premier League’s top clubs.
The centre-half hasn’t been as convincing this season but that doesn’t appear to have put potential suitors off.
With Kompany now leaving Man City, Pep Guardiola has lined the former Hull man to replace him according to The Metro. He could cost City a considerable fee, though. The report claims Leicester value the defender at £75m.
Losing Maguire would be a monumental blow to Leicester’s aspirations but it could help fund a club record deal for Youri Tielemans.
Only last week the Foxes were put off by Monaco’s valuation of £40m and as a result, any permanent transfer for the Belgian following his loan spell looked to be off the cards.
However, if the Midlands club were to receive as big a figure as The Metro suggests, a follow-up deal for Tielemans would be an absolute steal.
Maguire seems replaceable, especially with Filip Benkovic returning from Celtic and Brendan Rodgers’ track record with the player already. Tielemans, on the other hand, is more difficult to replace with the brunt of Leicester’s deep-lying midfielders consisting of more defensive minded players.
As such, Brendan Rodgers simply has to sanction the sale of their star centre half.
It would be hard to take, but if the young Belgium international was to return it would make the King Power faithful forget all about Maguire.
