Harry Maguire latest: Rodgers confirms rejected bids

Leicester will allow Harry Maguire to move to Man United on one condition – report

Leicester will allow Harry Maguire to move to Man United on one condition – report

The England defender has also been linked with Manchester City but Leicester appear to be pricing him out of a move at this stage.

The Englishman is the kind of player that the Red Devils have been desperate for over the last few years, and he could possibly strengthen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team in the 2019-20 season.

Betfair and Paddy Power have cut the odds on City capturing Maguire from 14/1 (+1400) to 6/1 (+600) overnight in what would be a major last-ditch steal on their rivals United.

However, United are said to have renewed their interest and Leicester boss Rodgers revealed on Tuesday that his club had turned down two offers for a player the Foxes are thought to value at £80million.

Leicester are believed to be holding out for up to £90m, a figure that would comfortably make Maguire the most expensive defender in history, surpassing the £75m Liverpool spent on Virgil van Dijk in 2018.

But Rodgers insists they're yet to receive an acceptable offer.

In reality, however, the idea that Leicester could capitalize on an inflated transfer market to force Manchester United to break the world record fee for a defender on an imperfect player is downright staggering.

Hanna said this is only the latest action against MS-13, which engages in extortion and drug dealing, among other activities. President Donald Trump has spoken frequently about the perniciousness of MS-13 and its relationship to illegal immigration.

And according to Rodgers, the two bids received by Leicester so far have not met the club's valuation.

Rodgers added: "The other club interested is a huge club, but he's a really good guy".

"He's never once sulked, he has just gone with it, he's integrated into the group, he's smiled, he's taken part in everything we have wanted to do and he was sick yesterday and we had a number of players that were sick yesterday after we came back from our trip. I am sure you don't believe every single player that we have been linked with", he said.

"I think he's a very good central defender and he has proven himself at the global level as well, but a part of me thought that they would go overseas to fill that role". "There's obviously been a lot of speculation surrounding him but we're relaxed about it".

United are hoping to bring in a top-level centre-back before the transfer window shuts next month and PA understands the England global is in the Old Trafford giants' sights.
