Leicester City boss relaxed about defender's link to Manchester United

Maguire's performances over the previous year or so have attracted interest in his services.

Man Utd are allegedly leading rivals City in the race to sign Maguire.

United are reportedly the only club to have made a serious offer for Maguire this summer, but City could still sweep in for Maguire once they know what the price will be to land the defender from Leicester.

HARRY MAGUIRE played the second half of Leicester's 1-0 pre-season friendly win over Scunthorpe United.

United have been linked with Maguire throughout the off-season, reports claiming the Red Devils are close to agreeing a world-record fee for a defender. Of course, he has attracted interest with two bids coming in but they nowhere near meet the valuation of the club.

"The club have been very good".

"It's a hard one because I think the back four is certainly somewhere that they have had issues, but he had a really good season past year and hopefully he can replicate that", he added.

"He's never once sulked, he has just gone with it, he's integrated into the group, he's smiled, he's taken part in everything we have wanted to do and he was sick yesterday and we had a number of players that were sick yesterday after we came back from our trip. There's obviously been a lot of speculation surrounding him but we're relaxed about it".

While United are said to be Maguire's preferred destination, reports claim Pep Guardiola is now seeking a replacement for Vincent Kompany, who left the club at the beginning of the summer to take over as player-manager of Anderlecht.

The talented Englishman has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford though the transfer remains complicated by his price-tag.
