Boot makers battle for Man Utd defender Maguire

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is set to land a bumper boot deal.

The Sun says Maguire, the world's most expensive defender, has NO footwear deal despite his £85million move to Manchester United.

But Nike, Adidas, Puma and Under Armour want him on a long-term contract worth £700,000-a-season.

Maguire, 26, wore 'blacked-out' boots for his United debut against Chelsea last week as he is not committed to a sponsor.

He has been out of contract since the summer and his commercial valued has increased massively since his record-breaking move from Leicester just before the transfer deadline.

Companies have been drawn to Maguire's wholesome image despite becoming a household name after the World Cup last year.
