Manchester United have been linked with Leicester City defender Harry Maguire in the past few transfer windows but latest developments suggest that a deal could be close.
The England international gave a hint about the transfer on Instagram which has made fans excited. Maguire liked a comment on Instagram from a Manchester United fan who had posted that he was going to be a fan favourite at the club.
Harry Maguire later retracted this by Tweeting that it was a mistake. Can we really read much into his social media activity as players tend to do so during the transfer window.
Going by the precedent, this could mean that defender is close to a move to the club. However, there have been conflicting reports in recent weeks.
The Daily Star had reported earlier in the week that the 26-year-old was closing in on a move to United rivals Manchester City. The report suggested that Manchester City were confident about the transfer and have already arranged for a medical on an unspecified date.
Manchester United fans would be hoping that the latest Instagram gaffe translates to the defender joining their club.
The defender is valued at £80 million and it remains to be seen which of the Manchester Clubs would sign the player.
