The reports a few days ago stated that Manchester United and Leicester City have reached an agreement on centre back defender, Harry Maguire.
According to the reports, Maguire would join the Red Devils before the close of the summer transfer window at £60 million plus add-ons of £20 million.
This deal once completed would make the English defender the most expensive defender in the world ahead of Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, whose transfer fee was £75 million.
However, the transfer deal between the Foxes and Man Utd has taken a new turn.
This comes after Leicester City manager, Brendan Rogers said there was nothing like an agreement between the club and Man Utd as he went ahead to play Maguire against Scunthorpe.
However, football analyst, Ian McGarry in a podcast revealed the reason behind the new twist.
McGarry disclosed that Leicester City believe Manchester United is a big and financial stable club and doesn’t need add-ons.
He said the Foxes want Man Utd to pay the transfer fee without add-ons, this means the fee still stands at £80 million.
McGarry also added that Leicester City may not want the English centre back to leave because they risk a backlash from their fans who want Maguire to remain at the King Power stadium.
