Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has provided an update on the future of Harry Maguire, amidst concrete interest from Man Utd.
Harry Maguire has been the primary target for Man Utd, however, the club has failed to meet the Leicester City’s £80million demand for the defender with Ed Woodward holding on to £65m instead.
But, it seems like, the Foxes aren’t going to buzz from their financial demands, even if the reports say that the 26-year-old’s heart is set on moving to Man Utd.
As per Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, there has been no change in the situation regarding Harry Maguire, unless someone comes up with £80m in the next few days:
“As of this day, the valuation for Harry hasn’t been met that would trigger any communication with the player and the other club. There’s no change,” Rodgers told BBC Leicester Sport.
“For me, Top, John Rudkin [director of football] and Susan Whelan [chief executive] are doing a great job in relation to that.
“The club hasn’t changed its stance in terms of the valuation for the player.”
There have been talks of Harry Maguire missing Leicester’s training the past week in order to complete a transfer to the Old Trafford, however, it has now been revealed that the Englishman was just ill and has been a top professional amidst all the transfer talks:
“I’m obviously relaxed with it. It is what it is. The player has been first class with his attitude in his training,” Rodgers added.
Harry Maguire to Man Utd has been dragged on for too long now.
The Red Devils are still in a desperate need for a top center-back alongside Victor Lindelof and Ed Woodward would do well to complete the deal for the 26-year-old if United want to challenge for the titles this season and beyond.
