Manchester United will make a move to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City, but only if the Red Devils offload a central defender first, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils must make space for Maguire in their squad before making a move to try and bring the England international to Old Trafford this summer.

Maguire’s stock has risen significantly this summer after his fine performances for England at the World Cup in Russia, as he helped them to reach the semi-finals.

According to the same story, Manchester United are ready to test Leicester’s resolve with an “imminent bid” for the 25-year-old centre-half.

However, it is also being claimed that the Red Devils will have to make space in their squad for the new signing by getting rid of one of their existing options at the back.

The same story says that Argentina international Marcos Rojo is the most likely player to be offloaded to make room for Maguire in the squad.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
