Manchester United are optimistic that deals can be reached for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire and Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Red Devils are refusing to concede defeat in their bid to England international Maguire from Leicester this summer.

The same article states that Leicester have already rejected two offers from Manchester United for the prized asset, including a £70m bid last week which fell £20m short of their asking price.

According to the same story, Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has remained in England in order to continue to work on a deal for Maguire.

The Evening Standard goes on to report that the 20-time English champions are preparing a fresh bid for Sean Longstaff despite Newcastle’s lavish £50m valuation of the 21-year-old.

The report adds that Manchester United are confident of reaching a £30m deal for the Newcastle youth product before deadline day next month.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term, prompting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to overhaul the Red Devils squad this summer.

The Norwegian head coach has already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the current transfer window.
