Manchester United are “confident” of completing a deal to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Red Devils are set to renew their interest in the Foxes defender after having been linked with him in the past.

According to the same report, interim Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is urging the Red Devils to bring the 26-year-old to Old Trafford this summer so that he can build his defence around the England international.

The same article claims that Maguire would be “open” to a move to Old Trafford after a switch failed to materialise last summer.

It is also claimed that Maguire – who is under contract until 2023 – could expect to increase his wages to around £140,000 a week should he move to Old Trafford this summer.

Maguire has been a constant fixture in the Leicester City team this season and he has scored three goals in 26 Premier League games so far.

Meanwhile, Manchester United – who are fifth in the table – will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday 30 March.
