Manchester United 'in Harry Maguire talks despite Leicester City valuation'

Harry Maguire is reportedly still at the centre of transfer talks between Manchester United and Leicester City, despite the clubs being far apart with their valuations.

Manchester United are reportedly still in discussions with Leicester City over a deal for Harry Maguire, despite the Foxes' unrealistic valuation.

The Red Devils have supposedly been told to pay in excess of £80m for the England international, which would make him the most expensive defender in the world.

United are only willing to go as high as £70m, but the Manchester Evening News claims that they have not ended their interest and there is still hope an agreement can be reached.

However, the 26-year-old is contracted to Leicester until 2023 and City are in no need to sell, though their hand may be forced if the centre-back pushes for an exit.

United have until next Thursday to convince their Premier League rivals to cash in.
