Manchester United are reportedly planning to bid as much as £50m to bring in Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer.

Manchester United are reportedly planning to bid as much as £50m for the services of Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer.

The 25-year-old only joined the Foxes a year ago from Hull City in a deal worth up to £17m, but his stock has risen considerably over the last month due to his performances for England at the World Cup in Russia.

According to the Daily Mail, United are planning to make a "huge offer" to bring Maguire to Old Trafford and would use him to replace either Phil Jones or Chris Smalling in the heart of their defence.

The newspaper says that the Foxes' Thai owners will "fight hard" to keep hold of Maguire, however, having already lost the services of Riyad Mahrez to United's rivals Manchester City this summer.

In recent days reports have suggested that Leicester are planning to offer Maguire an increase on his current £45,000-a-week wages in order to sign a new long-term deal at the King Power.
