Manchester United are still interested in Leicester City and England centre-back Harry Maguire, according to the BBC.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers does not want to sell the central defender this summer and is keen to get Leicester a place in Europe.

Maguire would be a difficult defender to replace due to his excellent displays for club and country over the last few seasons.

The centre-back signed a five-year deal at the King Power Stadium last September, keeping him contracted to the Foxes until 2023.

Leicester currently value the centre back at £70 million, with both Manchester City and Manchester United keen on the powerful defender.

United felt the price tag was too much last summer when they showed their initial interest, but it is believed that new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge admirer of the 26-year-old.

With Manchester United having a huge clear out this summer, Maguire and Crystal Palace youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka have emerged as two of United’s top defensive transfer targets.
