Harry Maguire has insisted that he is paying no attention to the speculation linking him with a transfer to Manchester United from Leicester City this summer.

The defender has been touted as a possible target for the Red Devils this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Maguire is widely considered to be one of the Premier League’s top centre-halves and it remains to be seen whether he will be staying at Leicester City beyond the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old is currently on international duty with England, and he refused to give much away when quizzed directly on the speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

Asked about the reports linking him with Manchester United, Maguire is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “When I’m away with England, I don’t think about anything to do with club football.

“As soon as I wear this badge, it’s really important to focus on England and nothing else. I’m fully focused on the two games coming up and that’s where my head is at the moment.”

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a whole host of players this summer as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

The Red Devils ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy after a largely disappointing campaign under Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer.

Maguire scored three goals in 31 Premier League appearances for Leicester City this season.
