Brendan Rodgers hoping Leicester can keep Harry Maguire

Leicester and United differ on their valuations of Harry Maguire

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has said that Manchester United have not met their evaluation for defender Harry Maguire.

The 26-year-old has been linked all summer long with a move to the Red Devils, with neighbourhood rivals Manchester City also keen to snap up one of England's first choice central defenders.

Maguire's performances over the a year ago or so have attracted interest in his services.

With much better value available on the market, for example, Tottenham stalwart Toby Alderweireld, who has a release clause of just £25 million, a rebuild the size of United's can not afford to spend so heavily on an imperfect player when several pieces are needed in the spine of the team.

That would break Virgil van Dijk's world record fee of £75million for a defender, set when he joined Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018.

"It's pretty simple really and we are quite relaxed about it, Harry is a top-class player and of course this has attracted interest, with two bids coming in".

"I really have to add, because I have been in this situation a number of times where it can be very, very hard for players".

The Premier League giants are expected to table an improved offer soon and are quietly confident of taking the England global to Old Trafford this summer.

"I've been in this position a number of times and it's never easy but he's taken part in everything and hasn't showed anything other than sheer professionalism. He came here to play and you can see the quality he has in those 45 minutes".

The Red Devils are reluctant to meet those demands but could increase their bid if they cannot find a suitable alternative to the England global. If we lose him we'd have a number of targets we'd look at.
