Leicester confident of keeping Maguire

Ajustar Comment Impresión

Manchester United are continuing to pursue both Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire.

Harry definitely had an outstanding World Cup and looks the part but it would be a stretch to say he fits all three characteristics simultaneously.

The Colombian centre-back had a strong World Cup, scoring Colombia's last-gasp equaliser against England.

Leicester are poised to slap a £95,000 a week four-year deal in front of the 25-year-old - nearly doubling his current £50,000 a week wages.

Manchester United supremo Woodward has been challenged by manager Jose Mourinho to complete two signings before the transfer window shuts on August 9. It is believed that the 2015 Premier League champions want at least 10 to 15 million extra for the defender, a price that seems unlikely for United to agree on.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has stated that both Kasper Schmeichel and Harry Maguire were not for sale this summer and that the Foxes are confident of holding onto their star duo.

Puel added that Maguire's displays for his club last season meant he was "not surprised" by the defender's performances in Russian Federation. "It is crucial for us", the Foxes boss told reporters after a 2-1 friendly loss to Udinese in Austria. We can not lose players just a few days before the beginning of the season. He [Maguire] can continue to perform with Leicester and improve and that is the important thing always with a young player.

"If we lose a player just a few days before the beginning of the season without the ability to replace him ...

I am confident with this and I think we can give him good ambition and to perform together with Leicester would be the best answer".

However, Puel is determined to keep him at the King Power Stadium.
