Manchester United are considering to reignite their interest in Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had a tough time reorganizing the backline and bringing a new centre-back is his top priority. United had been in the market since the last summer and their failure to bring in a defender has taken a toll on their defensive performance this season.
The Red Devils have conceded a whopping 52 goals this term, the most amongst the top eight teams in the Premier League. Except for Victor Lindelof, no other players have managed to impress in the heart of the defence and the Swedish international could be paired with a new face next season.
Maguire has been a rock in the Foxes defence and his supreme performance throughout this season has only inflated his price once again. After having an underwhelming season fund will be available for United and an offer in the region of £80m should be enough to tempt Leicester in letting leave their prized asset.
United have scouted a number of other defenders in the recent past with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Milan Skriniar and Alessio Romagnoli but Maguire’s expertise in Premier League football has made him a favourable prospect.
