Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward isn’t planning to sanction an improved bid for Leicester City centre-half Harry Maguire, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Woodward is desperate to avoid paying over the odds for the Leicester defender despite Manchester United’s need for a new centre-half in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Leicester will only sell the England international if Manchester United make an offer in excess of £80m this summer.

According to the same story, Woodward didn’t go on Manchester United’s pre-season tour to stay in England and work on transfer deals before next month’s deadline day.

The Daily Mirror go on to add that the Manchester United chief is desperate not to get his “fingers burnt” over a deal for the former Hull City centre-half.

Manchester United conceded more goals than Manchester City and Liverpool FC combined in the Premier League last season.

The Red Devils have already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer transfer window so far.

Manchester United will start the new Premier League season with a home clash against Chelsea FC on 11 August.

The Red Devils finished in sixth spot in the table last term.
