Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Manchester United to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City this summer after Eric Bailly’s injury, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports News, as quoted by Metro is reporting that the Red Devils boss is keen to see the club get a deal for Maguire over the line before the close of the summer transfer window next month.

Maguire, 26, has long been touted as a target for Manchester United this summer as the Red Devils look to strengthen their squad ahead of Solskjaer’s first full campaign in charge.

Central defender Bailly suffered a serious-looking knee injury during Manchester United’s friendly clash with Tottenham last week – and according to the same story, that has encouraged the Red Devils to step up their interest in signing Maguire.

The Red Devils have had no luck so far with their reported interest in Maguire, but it now remains to be seen whether Bailly’s injury could force them to step up their bid to land the England international.

Manchester United have officially confirmed two signings so far this summer, after wrapping up deals for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

They will be looking to break back into the top four next season after they finished sixth and without a trophy last term.
