Newcastle transfer latest as Liverpool 'confident' of securing striker deal

Maguire joined Leicester only last summer in a £17 million deal from Hull City and quickly went on to establish himself as an integral part of Puel's side. His performances earned him acall-up for England's World Cup squad.

That seems highly unlikely given the sulking United boss's current transfer stand-off with Ed Woodward and so Maguire looks set to stay put and land a bumper pay rise in the process.

However, the 25-year-old could not prevent Boro from being relegated to the Championship in their first season back in the Premier League.

One player who could sign is Barcelona bulldozer Yerry Mina, whose stock has risen after a fine World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We know all the difficulties after the World Cup, to work in this condition to prepare all of the squad, to keep good mentality and spirit and to find a good level for every player".

'He was great and played very well.

Maguire's good form in Russian Federation has garnered interest from Manchester United, who are looking to buy a central defender before the transfer window shuts in Englan on August 9.

'Of course for us he is a very good player - I wait for him with impatience because we need Harry and we need also Jamie [Vardy] because they are Leicester'.

If we lose a player just a few days before the beginning of the season without the ability to replace him because the transfer window for the Premier League will finish on August 9. "He (Maguire) can continue to perform with Leicester and improve and that is the important thing always with a young player".

This news comes as United have made official inquiries after the Leicester City defender Harry Maguire Maguire, who they rate at around the £65M mark. "He's happy to be here, this is a fantastic opportunity for him to show his talent".
