The Red Devils have been credited with an interest in landing the talented defender this summer following his impressive performances for England at the World Cup in Russia.
Maguire only signed for Leicester from Hull City last summer but his fine performances for the Three Lions this summer have prompted speculation that he could be on his way out of the King Power Stadium.
Now, former West Ham United star Cottee has spoken of his belief that Maguire could be on his way out of the King Power Stadium this summer.
Speaking in an interview with Sporting Bet, Cottee said: “There’s always a chance Maguire could leave, as we all know money talks.
“Leicester need to secure Maguire, no matter the cost or how recently his last contract was signed. Leicester can’t afford to lose their best players, so they need to secure Maguire not matter the demands, as he should be rewarded for how well he’s played.
“If a stupid offer comes in for Maguire, around the £60m mark, then the club may look to let him go, but I’d like to think Leicester will keep him.”
Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.
The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy in Jose Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at the club.
Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
