Man Utd and Man City set to miss out on £50m defender

Manchester United and Manchester City look set to miss out on Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

The defender, who has played in every single minute in the Premier League for Leicester this season, has attracted the interests of both Manchester clubs in recent months following a string of impressive displays at the back for the 2015/16 league champions.

He only arrived at the club last summer, making the £17 million move from Hull City following their relegation to the Championship, but has impressed so much so that he is expected to be included in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad this coming summer.

United and City have both been linked with making a £50m move to sign the 24-year-old, but according to The Sun, the defender is in no rush to quit Leicester.

The Foxes owners are known to be keen to build the club from strength to strength following their shock title win two seasons, and Maguire has said that he is keen to be a part of the club’s future.

He said: “I knew when I joined the Foxes that it was a big team — a big Premier League club.

“We’ve got a good owner who wants the club to move forward and upwards, instead of looking below us.

“I know the club is on an upward curve and, hopefully, I will be a part of that future.”
