Manchester United are lining up a big-money bid to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Red Devils are keen to bring the England international to Old Trafford this summer as they look to try and conclude a deal before the transfer deadline on Thursday.

The Red Devils are thought to be on the lookout for further reinforcements before the transfer deadline as they look to add to their squad ahead of Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge.

The same report says that England star Maguire is thought to be Mourinho’s top target this summer as he looks to put the finishing touches to his squad ahead of next season.

However, it is also claimed in the same story that Manchester United are aware that they would likely to have to pay a world-record fee for a defender to lure the 25-year-old to Old Trafford before the deadline.

The same article says that Manchester United will turn to Toby Alderweireld and Yerry Mina as alternative targets if they are unable to conclude a deal for Maguire.

Manchester United will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the title next season after they finished second and without a trophy last season.
