Leicester City hold all the cards in negotiations with Manchester United over the sale of Harry Maguire, according to Dharmesh Sheth.

The Foxes are facing a battle to keep the 25-year-old at Leicester beyond the summer transfer window.

Maguire has emerged as a hot property following his impressive performances in the England national team during the World Cup.

The 25-year-old scored in England’s 2-0 win against Sweden in the World Cup quarter-final to help book a place in the last four.

Manchester United have been left frustrated in their bid to sign Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

As a result, Maguire has been earning interest from Manchester United ahead of the new Premier League season.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Leicester will ultimately manage to keep Maguire at the King Power Stadium.

“Leicester hold all the cards,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“They say he is not for sale. He won’t be leaving in this window. He has four years left on his contract.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table but ended up 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City.

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and English goalkeeper Lee Grant.
