Leicester City can demand a huge transfer fee for Manchester United target Harry Maguire, according to reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The England international has been linked with a potential move to the Red Devils in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Maguire was something of a revelation at the World Cup following his impressive performances for Gareth Southgate’s team.

Indeed, the Leicester defender scored in England’s 2-0 win over Sweden in the World Cup quarter-final before a 2-1 loss to Croatia in the last four.

Manchester United are in the market to sign a centre-half but Jose Mourinho has been left frustrated so far this summer.

Leicester are thought to be asking for around £65m for Maguire, which would make the Englishman Man United’s most expensive defender.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Leicester are in a strong position despite Manchester United’s interest in Maguire.

“They can ask for what they want. He has four years left on his contract,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“He was signed from Hull last summer. I can’t see Leicester having sold Mahrez to Man City.”

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of the 20-time English champions.

The 20-time English champions finished in second spot in the Premier League table last term to secure a place in the Champions League.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
