Manchester United are willing to pay more than Manchester City to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that both clubs are keen on signing the England star this summer as they look to add to their defensive options ahead of next season.

The same story says that Manchester City will not match Leicester City’s asking price of around £80m for the 26-year-old, with the Citizens instead rating him at around £60m.

And the same article says that Manchester United are willing to pay more than Manchester City, but the defender himself has his heart set on a move to The Etihad ahead of the Red Devils.

The story says that Maguire will now push for a dream move to Manchester City by pleading with Leicester City to drop their valuation.

Maguire scored three goals in 31 Premier League games for Leicester City last season.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term and without a trophy.
