Maguire in line for United debut against Chelsea


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has acknowledged that Harry Maguire is on the cusp of signing for the club and he could feature in the Premier League opener against Chelsea.

The England international has already arrived at the Red Devils’ Carrington base for the medical tests and a £85m deal is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours.

In a report covered by the club’s official website, Solskjaer confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Leicester City for the transfer of the defender and he could make his debut against the Blues on August 11.

“Let’s get the details over the line but yeah, [he could be in contention for Chelsea game]. He has played a few games in pre-season, we will have to assess him if and when,” he said.

Maguire will become the Red Devils’ third signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively.

Foxes want a higher fee upfront from United for Maguire


Leicester City have reportedly told Manchester United that they are unlikely to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire unless they receive a higher transfer fee upfront.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on improving the club’s defence ahead of the new season.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils have made an opening bid of £72m with additional bonuses which would be paid, should the club qualify for the Champions League.

However, the Foxes have rebuffed the package and want a bigger sum upfront, given they are not convinced that the Red Devils will make a swift return to Europe’s elite competition.

Maguire, who has four years remaining on his Foxes contract, has been regularly involved with the east Midlands side in their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

Manchester City have recently failed with a similar offer to United’s for the England international but they have decided against continuing their pursuit of the centre-back.
