Manchester United have seen their bid of £70m rejected by Leicester City as they look to sign England defender, Harry Maguire according to Sky Sports.
Leicester are said to be holding out for more, given that the central defender has a considerable amount more experience on the international stage, compared to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who signed for £50m.
It remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils will improve their offer to land Maguire’s signature, but it’s set to be an interesting transfer window ahead.
One Championship club will be hoping that they do come to an agreement to sign the defender, as they could be set for a welcome financial boost.
Maguire spent three years with Hull City, making 75 appearances in total for the Tigers, before making the move to Leicester in 2017.
A report from the Hull Daily Mail claims that Hull would receive 15% of any profit made from Maguire’s potential move to Old Trafford.
Maguire has been hugely impressive for Leicester recently and has established himself as a regular in the England setup, making 20 appearances for the 3 Lions in total.
He’ll be hoping to have his long-term future resolved at the earliest of opportunities so that he can focus on the new season which gets underway in August.
This will be a welcome boost for the Tigers.
Maguire has been excellent recently, and he would be more than deserving of a move to a club with the stature of Manchester United.
Hull will be hoping that the Red Devils can improve their bid so that they can get as much as they can for the sell-on clause that they had when they sold him to Leicester in 2017.
Hull aren’t exactly flush and any money they can earn – at this time of year – has to be welcomed.
