Manchester United target Harry Maguire for £50m

Manchester United sent strong message over £65m pursuit

Manchester United sent strong message over £65m pursuit

It's certainly a decision that makes sense as Jose Mourinho's squad is over stocked with central defenders as they head into a new crucial Premier League season.

Chelsea have entered the race to sign Manchester United star Anthony Martial, according to the Times (h/t ESPN). That's the big question on every fans' lips as they enter the new season.

United play AC Milan, Liverpool and Real Madrid in the United States this month before travelling to Germany to take on Bayern Munich in their final pre-season clash on 5 August.

Undermanned following the World Cup, United were disjointed and void of creativity as they fired a blank against the MLS strugglers.

England worldwide Maguire is said to be the Portuguese tactician's preferred choice in this window, but could cost the Red Devils as much as £65 million (R1.15 billion) after his impressive 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign with the Three Lions.




"Mourinho's side are now just 11/10 to sign the Leicester defender, having been available at 10/1 a few days ago".

Maguire has emerged as a target with the Daily Mail claiming Mourinho has shown a keen interest in the Leicester defender and United are ready to launch a £65m bid to lure him to Old Trafford.

Maguire played a key role in England's most successful World Cup campaign in 28 years in Russian Federation, leading to former team-mate Riyad Mahrez saying he deserves to play at a higher level.

The Portuguese boss wants to add a commanding centre-back to his squad this summer but will need to get one out first with Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling subject to enquiries.
