Manchester United currently scouring the market for a center-back to bolster their ailing defence. And, the name topping their wishlist for the same is Leicester City’s Harry Maguire.

According to reports, the Red Devils CEO Ed Woodward is ready to offer the Englishman a whopping £250k per week to join Manchester United.

The 26-year-old currently earns £90k per week at the King’s Power stadium, and should he agree to move to Old Trafford, he would be in for a massive pay raise.

Manchester United have already had a £70m bid for the player rejected by the Foxes, who want a world-record £90m fee for their prized asset.

Manchester City were also said to be interested in Maguire’s signature, but have turned their attention elsewhere following the mammoth asking price for him.
