Transfer Rumour: Manchester Club's fighting for Harry Maguire?

Leicester City and England centre back Harry Maguire who joined Leicester City in 2017 on a five-year contract and potential £17 million fees is under the transfer radar. After the departure of Vincent Kompany, Manchester City are said to bid on the England international in this summer transfer. The Foxes demanded £75m last summer to the Red Devils but as United refused to pay this huge amount the defender was rewarded with a bumper new contract. City Boss, Pep Guardiola was impressed with Maguire’s performance after City’s 1-0 win against Leicester this season and wants the homegrown talent to join the Blues. However, Leicester does not want to sell Maguire but such a fee would afford them to invest in two or three other areas of the squad. The race is going to be an enthralling one as both Manchester Clubs are willing to bid for the centre back. Who do you think Harry Maguire will make his way for?


Harry Maguire has been on the radar of Man City over their rival United. Pep Guardiola would like to fill departing Vincent Kompany position with Harry Maguire. And Maguire is one of the best centre-backs in the PL.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be more willing to stretch to the Foxes lofty demands now that they need to reclaim a Champions League spot next season.

Currently City looks far greater attraction compared to United after winning a domestic treble this season.


City seems to have made up their mind to match Leicester’s lofty demands. City boss Pep Guardiola believes Maguire’s ability to bring the ball out of defense would ideally complement his side. The champions know they must move quickly as Maguire also has admirers at Old Trafford.

Leicester officials fear they will be unable to stand in Maguire’s way if City table a offer of £75m.

It means Leicester stand to make a huge profit on Maguire after signing him from Hull in June 2017 for just £17m.

For McGuire, City, understandably look the far greater attraction compared to United at this moment in time after winning a domestic treble this season.

A fight where there will be no winners. No matter whichever clubs wins the race to sign him will regret. He is not the same player anymore who performed in the previous season as a man possessed.
Also I have no clue what will Manchester City do with him. They have laporte + stones plus a string a second third choice CBs. Plus a lot of academy players as well. Kompany was never in the reckoning to be the first choice CB this season so the logic that he will be Kompany’s replacement is a bad one too
