Speculation, appearing in the Sunday press, implies that Manchester United could be set to bring a centre-back to the club.

It has been previously mooted that Jose Mourinho is looking at improving his defence this summer and the Mirror is of the opinion that Mourinho has identified Harry Maguire, of Leicester City, as the player to play alongside Eric Bailly at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

Maguire, 25-years-of-age, has sprung to prominence this season, establishing himself as an England international, after joining Leicester City, from Hull City, in the summer transfer window back in 2017.

Leicester City paid Hull City a fee of £17 million for his services but it is inferred by our referenced source that Manchester United will need to pay something close to £35 million for Leicester City to even contemplate selling their prized defensive asset.

Here at Vital Manchester United, we’ll keep a watchful eye out for any further developments and report back as deemed necessary.
