Despite the transfer window closing next Thursday, Manchester United still currently have just two completed signings to their name.
Both Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s early arrivals in the summer transfer window certainly felt like the Red Devils were getting their act together, after they ended the Premier League campaign in disappointing fashion with a sixth-placed finish.
The club have been after Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire for what feels like eternity, but with the transfer deadline edging ever closer, the stakes are certainly starting to get raised.
According to talkSPORT, United have made a “take it or leave it” offer for Maguire that is worth around £80m. The report adds that the offer will be removed from the table if the Foxes fail to accept it by Monday.

After hearing the update on their pursuit of the 26-year-old, United fans took to Twitter to share their opinions on the matter and many were seemingly divided about whether the ultimatum constituted the best approach.
Some supporters of the Manchester side suggested that this is the right way to go about things and simply stated that they love their “new business ways”.
Others however insisted that the club should have just accepted Leicester’s demands for the defender and seemingly didn’t approve of the “take it or leave it” offer.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Idiots, Leicester have zero obligation to sell. We should just match the asking price instead of playing hardball. They have the leverage here

That’s how it should be. Unfortunately their greed is jeopardising the whole deal so I expect them to reject it, unless Maguire himself forces through it by handing in a transfer request. Player intervention is the only way.

Accept the deal. You’ll never get a better deal for him.

Just walk away. Get a better defender for a cheaper price.
