Leicester City defender Harry Maguire is edging closer to a move to Manchester United after telling manager Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave the club, according to The Daily Mail.
The paper say that Maguire informed team-mates and staff of his intentions during the squad’s pre-season training camp in France, hoping that it paves the way for a £75m move this summer.
Who is Man Utd’s worst ever player? Bebe? Eric Djemba-Djemba? The fan in the video below actually think it’s one of the Red Devils’ current crop…
United have been chasing the England international for weeks now, with Sky Sports reporting at the start of July that the club had a bid for him rejected by the Foxes.
The 26-year-old, who has extensive experience from League One level through to the Premier League, is clearly coveted by the Red Devils, who will be hoping he can improve their poor defensive performance in the top-flight last term.
United conceded more goals than all but one of the teams in the top half of the table in 2018/19.
Fans are now hopeful they could finally land their man, taking to Twitter over the weekend to share their thoughts…

A lot of people won’t be happy with Maguire signing but we have to take the positives and look at how significantly it could improve our defence. Especially next to Lindelof and Wan Bissaka, with Bailly & Tuanzebe as back ups, it’s a huge upgrade overall ??♂️
