United Have Been Joined By Three Premier League Rivals In Race For £60m Rated Centre Back Target

Harry Maguire

Manchester United are now involved in a four-way battle for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire, according to the Sun.

The Red Devils were initially interested in the England international last summer but were put off by the Foxes’ asking price for the defender.

Now, though, it appears United will have competition for Maguire from the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.

The Blues’ interest depends on whether CAS (the Court of Arbitration for Sport) suspend FIFA’s transfer ban, but all three London clubs are reportedly keen on signing the centre-back.

Maguire only signed a new five-year contract at the King Power Stadium back in September and Leicester are likely to demand at least £60m for the 26-year-old.

United are believed to be looking at a number of centre-back targets this summer, following a season where they’ve conceded 52 goals in the league so far, with nine other teams having better defensive records.
