Manchester United Develop Interest In Harry Maguire
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is impressed with what he has seen so far from England’s Center-back Harry Maguire at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Portuguese manager, who is a world cup pundit for a football channel, is pleased with the displays put up by the Leicester City’s defender for the Three Lions and he wants to add the player to his team ahead of next season.
According to Daily Mail, Mourinho is in need of a new, strong and quality defender who would bolster his team’s defensive abilities during the upcoming season. The British publication further revealed that the Portuguese manager might make an official approach to the player’s agent in coming days.
Maguire joined the Foxes in a deal worth only £17m from Hull last summer but there is a great increment to his market value due to his blistering performances with the English team, who lost 2-1 to Croatia at the semi-finals stage of the world’s greatest football fiesta.
The Red Devils boss is reportedly set to make a £50m move for his signature this summer before he begins to draw many suitors after the tournament.
With Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind all linked with a move out of Trafford, the Sheffield-born defender might be a good addition to the team next season.
Having played six matches for England in Russia, the 25-year-old has scored a single goal but that didn’t take anything away from his overall performances.
