Manchester United could be forced to meet Leicester City’s asking price for Harry Maguire after Eric Bailly’s injury, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils have been keeping tabs on Maguire throughout the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United were prepared to outbid Manchester City for the England international.

According to the same story, Leicester are unwilling to accept less than £75m, which is the same amount Liverpool FC paid for Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester United suffered a setback on Wednesday night after Eric Bailly sustained a potentially serious injury during their pre-season friendly with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mirror go on to say that Bailly’s injury could force Manchester United to stop wasting time and meet Leicester’s valuation to get a deal done.

Manchester United have signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the 2019 summer transfer window so far.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a place in the Champions League for the fourth times in six seasons.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins of the club from Jose Mourinho last December before the Norwegian was appointed as their permanent manager in March.
