Maguire to Man United

After what seems like an age, it appears that we are finally going to see Harry Maguire move to Manchester United.

The Leicester defender has on Sunday been pictured in Manchester, ahead of what is being reported as a world-record move for a central defender.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also recently spoken about the Maguire move. He claimed that the last few details should be sorted over the weekend:

“Hopefully the last little details will be in place over the weekend and we can announce something very soon.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.

Ake & Tarkowski linked

As mentioned above by the Mirror, Leicester could be set to earn around £80m from the Maguire transfer.

With such a big amount of cash coming in, Leicester are already eyeing replacements for the outgoing Maguire.

According to Sky, Leicester are looking to sign either Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake or Burnley’s James Tarkowski to replace Maguire.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are understood to have held informal conversations regarding both players.

However, the report from Sky claims that while Burnley are prepared to do business over Tarkowski, the Cherries are reluctant to sell Ake.

Sky also address the Lewis Dunk to Leicester links:

Leicester have also been linked with Brighton’s Lewis Dunk. But he is not thought to be on their list of targets and Seagulls boss Graham Potter says he expects him to stay
