Manchester City and Manchester United are reportedly planning to make an approach for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire during the summer.

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for both Manchester City and Manchester United.

Last summer, Maguire made the switch from Hull City to the Foxes on a five-year contract, and the 24-year-old has quickly established himself as a key part of the East Midlands side's backline.

Maguire is also in favour with England boss Gareth Southgate, and the centre-back's progression over the past six months has not gone unnoticed by the big clubs in the Premier League.

According to The Mirror, the two Manchester teams will attempt to sign Maguire ahead of the next campaign as both sides look to strengthen in defence.

City have only just added Aymeric Laporte but Pep Guardiola remains keen to add fresh faces in front of Ederson, while a new centre-back is a priority for United manager Jose Mourinho.

With four years still remaining on Maguire's deal come the summer, Leicester are likely to demand at least double the £17m that they paid seven months ago.
