Reports📰: City & United Set to Battle for Maguire⚔

Manchester City and Manchester United are set to go head to head for Harry Maguire now that England's Nations League campaign is over, as per reports.

The local rivals both want to sign the England defender this summer and are prepared to enter talks over a deal that would likely smash the record for an English defender.

His current club Leicester do not want to sell him, however, and it is understood they have therefore not put a valuation on the 26-year-old.

But the Foxes believe he is worth in the region of £80million - more than the world record set by £75m Virgil van Dijk last year.

Both City and United are understood to be reluctant to pay that much - but any fee would almost certainly break the £50m City spent on signing Kyle Walker from Tottenham in 2017.
