According to latest reports, the rumour mill has suggested that Manchester United’s chase for Harry Maguire is still on. However, the Red Devils are tipped to make a move for the Leicester City defender only if one condition gets fulfilled.
United will be ready to match Leicester City’s price tag for Maguire if they manage to offload Romelu Lukaku this summer. The Belgian is looking for a way out of the club after having two below-par seasons at Old Trafford.
Inter Milan and Juventus are both keen on the 26-year-old’s signature. The latest reports about Lukaku have also suggested that Inter are ready to match Man United’s £75m asking price for the striker.
The Maguire chase has stretched to the final two weeks of the transfer window after United failed with two attempts to land the player. The Red Devils have already agreed to pay £70m for the 26-year-old but Leicester have quoted a price of £90m for their prized asset. The transfer fee is apparently proving to be a major stumbling block in the completion of the deal.
Recently, a few reports suggested that United had raised their bid to £80m but the Foxes didn’t budge. Ed Woodward and co are also targetting deals for Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic before the window closes.
