Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho has had his eye on Leicester’s Harry Maguire for quite a while now and finally has a chance to scout the football player. He is ready to pay as much as £ 65 million for the player to crossover to United. Despite what Mourinho’s desires, the 25-year-old center back is swayed towards Old Trafford in just two weeks’ time.
Leicester City only paid for Maguire at £ 17m when he was just fresh from Hull City last year. There is a huge possibility of the Leicester knocking the price up since Maguire is highly in demand. In Mourinho’s case, he will have to give u one of his five central defenders to make room for Maguire.
Gareth Southgate who led England to the World Cup chose Maguire before United’s Chris Smalling in his World Cup squad. This was greatly due to the Yorkshireman passing ability. “Initially it was obviously a disappointment because you want to be part of the big tournaments” Smalling adds.
