Stupid to turn it down: Leicester fans divided over potential Maguire departure

One of the transfer sagas of the summer could well involve Harry Maguire. The defender was the subject of interest from Manchester United last year but the 26-year-old is again firmly in their minds.

The Sun reported over the weekend that United were willing to meet Leicester’s mega £80m evaluation of the centre back with Ed Woodward set to cave into their demands.

A potential transfer fee that high seems absurd but some Foxes fans took to Twitter to claim that they still wouldn’t move him on.

The reaction was mixed but one supporter suggested that Leicester weren’t a selling club anymore whilst another said that money wouldn’t replace Maguire.

However, other fans were more eager to sell. A further supporter said they’d be fools not to accept an offer of £80m. One member of the King Power faithful meanwhile made reference to the number of central defenders already there.

Leicester’s number 15 played a part in 31 Premier League fixtures last season, scoring three goals in the process.

He also played a vital hand in England’s run to the Nations League finals this summer as they missed out on a chance of securing a trophy after losing to the Netherlands.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
