Leicester City

Maguire keen to secure City switch

25th June 2019, 10:47 by Neil Foster

Harry Maguire is reportedly 'desperate' to join Manchester City but the Premier League champions' valuation is below his asking price.

Rumours surrounding the England centre-half have been doing the rounds ever since the dust settled on the Premier League season, with Manchester United initially linked to the 26-year-old.

Red Devils chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to rebuild his Old Trafford squad and Maguire appears to fit the profile of the type of player he wants in the ranks.

However, with no Champions League football to offer, it was always going to be tough for United to lure the best to the Theatre of Dreams, especially with City then flexing their financial muscles.

Vincent Kompany's departure meant Pep Guardiola was on the lookout for a new central defender and Maguire is the man he wants.

According to The Sun, the former Hull City ace has his eyes on the Etihad Stadium but the Citizens are refusing to stump up the £80m the Foxes require for his signature and are offering £60m.

It remains to be seen what happens but it is unlikely that the Sheffield-born stopper will ply his trade at the King Power Stadium next term.
