Harry Maguire has said he respects Leicester’s decision to reject any offers from Manchester United for his services.
The Leicester City centre-back was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho thought to be willing to pay a world record fee for a centre-back.
Despite not getting his big money move though, Maguire has said that he respects the clubs decision and is fully committed to the Midlands club:
“I want to be on the pitch, whether it is for someone else or for Leicester,” said Maguire to the press after his sides 2-1 win over Southampton at the weekend.
“There was always going to be interest over the summer after the team doing so well in Russia but the owners reiterated I was not for sale and I respected their decision.
“They gave me the opportunity to play for this club, such a good club on the rise and I respected their decision. My mind has been fully on Leicester since then.
“I’ve been really impressed since I came back. The people brought in seem to have fitted in really well and I think we’ll only get better.
“I’m an ambitious player and I think we have a really good, talented squad. If we stick together, we can be a real force this year.”
