Manchester United’s hopes of landing Harry Maguire before tomorrow’s transfer deadline have been handed a boost with news emerging that Leicester are close to signing two new centre-backs.
Manchester United are known to be desperate to add a new central defender to their ranks, with Maguire thought to be one of their primary targets.
With just over 24 hours until Premier League clubs have to complete all their summer transfer business, Leicester are said to be closing in on adding two new defenders to their ranks, despite already having signed Jonny Evans from West Brom.
Dinamo Zagreb defender Filip Benkovic has had his medical ahead of £13.5million move while it is also though that a £22.5m deal for Freiburg’s Caglar Soyuncu is also close, leaving the Mirror to report that a late move for Maguire still may materialise.
Leicester have been adamant that the England centre-half is not for sale having only arrived from Hull City last summer, but some are suggesting that a World Record bid for a defender could be enough to seal a deal.
