Leicester City star Harry Maguire believes he’ll be a Manchester United player by the end of the transfer window. United have ramped up their interest in the defender in the last week after making little progress in a move for Tottenham ace Toby Alderweireld.
Maguire’s reputation skyrocketed during England’s World Cup campaign with the centre-back one of Gareth Southgate’s best performers in Russia.
Leicester value Maguire at around £50m and the Daily Mail claim the defender is confident of completing a move to Old Trafford before the Foxes play United at the Theatre of Dreams on August 10th.
United have signed three players so far this summer with Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant arriving but Jose Mourinho has confirmed he wants to sign two more players.
Leicester are notoriously hard negotiators and extracted a club record fee from Manchester City in order to allow Riyad Mahrez to move to the Etihad.
However, United have raised an extra £14m from the sale of Daley Blind to Ajax and can expect to make a similar amount when Matteo Darmian departs.
