Bolstering the defensive line was on the cards for Jose Mourinho o in the preceding transfer window and appeared favourites to enroll the England and Leicester City’s defensive cameo, Harry Maguire only before the Foxes rejecting the proposal for their man at the back twice.
It was previously reported that the player himself pushed a move to Old Trafford but however no such thing was materialized. The 25-year-old defender last week admitted he has high ambitions and further insisted he would struggle to turn down a move to top six clubs of the Premier League. ‘Everyone wants to play at the top-level, everyone wants to play the biggest tournaments in the world and obviously, the Champions League is one.

Inside news –
Jose Mourinho’s backline has sparked some serious issues since the start of the 2018-19 campaign and came under the spotlight several times by casting awful performances. The Portuguese tactician was enraged that he was denied a defensive signing and the club have made a disappointing start to the season as they kept only one clean sheet and conceded conceding sixteen goals in their opening eight matches and conceded 15 goals in the Premier League.
This could spark Red Devils to make attempts to bolster their struggling backline and report by the Sun claim the Manchester club is set to launch a mammoth bid rising to the extent of £60 million to seal the services of a headstrong man at the back Harry Maguire.
The report further claims Leicester City would demand £70 million for the 25-year-old after World Cup heroics for England.
