Maguire admits desire to play at ‘the highest level’ amid Manchester United interest

England hero Harry Maguire has admitted that he is keen to play ‘at the highest level’ with Manchester United thought to be interested.

The Leicester City centre-back was one of the star performers for England at the World Cup, being an integral part of Gareth Southgate’s defence, as well as being a threat in the opposition box from the Three Lions’ dangerous set pieces.

His performances in Russia have attracted the attention of Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho reportedly weighing up a £50 million bid for the 25-year-old.

Leicester are keen to keep the former Hull defender at the King Power Stadium and are thought to want to offer him improved terms, but Maguire has suggested he would be open to a move to Old Trafford should United come calling, saying he wants to play at the ‘highest level’:

“Every player wants to play at the highest level. I’ve just come back from playing at a World Cup, where I really enjoyed the high pressure of the games. It was something that I really thrived off,” he told the Sun.

“Leicester have been unbelievable to me and I’m really happy there but I’m also an ambitious player and everyone wants to play at the top.”

United have also been linked with Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld and AC Milan’s Leonardo Bonucci.
