It has been a pretty hectic summer transfer window for Manchester United, with much work still ahead.

Credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has met everything head on, signing two players while agreeing new contracts for three lads who are already at Old Trafford.

One transfer rumour that just won’t go away is Harry Maguire to Old Trafford. In an exclusive from The Sun, predominantly based around Paul Pogba, there was an extremely interesting paragraph about the centre-half…

They state that ‘United have been boosted’ in their pursuit of the 26-year-old, as behind the scenes, Leicester City chiefs have privately accepted that Maguire’s departure is inevitable.

Furthermore, The Foxes are confident that their £85million asking price will be met, while the player is keen on moving to Old Trafford and linking up with Solskjaer.

For all of the aforementioned good work, a new centre-half is an absolute must for United. Maguire would be a stunning addition at whatever cost. He’s a player who’d immediately become the Red Devils’ best defender as soon as he walks through the door. Surely you can’t put a price on that?

The Sun also add that Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is already weighing up a move for a replacement, with Burnley’s James Tarkowski in his sights.
