Manchester United will have to pay £90m to sign Leicester City defender Harry Maguire this summer, according to a report in England.

The Telegraph is reporting that Manchester United are unwilling to match Leicester’s asking price for the England international as things currently stand.

The same article states that the Foxes are still adamant that they want a world-record fee for a defender, which would involve an initial £85m plus an additional £5m in add-ons.

According to the same story, Leicester have been transparent with Manchester City and Manchester United since May that it would take such a price to convince them to sell.

The Telegraph go on to add that Maguire will be free to leave as soon as any club matches Leicester’s asking price.

The report reveals that Manchester United believe Leicester are being unreasonable after the Red Devils made a £60m bid earlier this summer.

The 20-time English champions have already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the summer transfer window so far.

The Red Devils will start the new Premier League season on Sunday 11 August with a home clash against their bitter rivals Chelsea FC at Old Trafford.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League last season.
