Sky Sports name both Manchester City and Manchester United as having an interest in Maguire:

Otamendi & Mangala to be sold?
Now, though, the Mirror is claiming that Manchester City would have to sell both Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala to fund a deal for Maguire.
City are said to be wary of Financial Fair Play, with the report from the Mirror claiming that unless the above-mentioned centre-backs are sold soon, the Citizens will be forced to drop their interest in Maguire.
Pep Guardiola has recently spoken out on the subject of if City are trying to sign a centre-back, specifically Maguire:
“We are looking for some names.
“We shall see if the market is possible and the club believes we can spend that money. But if they don’t, we shan’t spend it.
“Maguire is a Leicester player.
“I know some people like Bayern Munich like to talk a lot about Leroy (Sane), but usually I never speak about players at other clubs.” As quoted by the Daily Mail.
