Manchester United are eyeing up a move for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire, according to The Sun.

The former Sheffield United and Hull City defender has had an impressive season for Leicester City in the Premier League this season and his form has not gone unnoticed by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

The 25-year-old, who is now an England international and could be heading to the World Cup in Russia this summer, started his career with his home-town club Sheffield United. He went onto play 166 games for the Blades before the age of 21 and was a fans’ favourite at Bramhall Lane.

He was snapped up by Hull City when they were in the Premier League in 2014 for just £2.5 million. He was not used as a first-team regular in his first season under Steve Bruce and was loaned out to Wigan Athletic.

He was part of the Tigers’ squad who were promoted from the Championship in 2016, but only played 22 Championship games in that season. He made his impact in the following Premier League season under Mike Phelan and Marco Silva.

He was signed by Leicester City last summer for £17 million and now has Manchester United on his tail. It is strange to think that Hull City’s backline last season included Maguire and Andy Robertson, who has this season played a key part in Liverpool’s journey to the Champions League Semi-Final.
