'Flattered' Leicester defender Maguire ready to lead Man Utd resurgence

Harry Maguire is ready to join the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era at Manchester United, according to reports.

Leicester are still holding out for £80m for the England international, with United wiling to pay closer to £70m.

The 26-year-old might play a role in a deal getting tied up as reports claim he wants to make a move this summer.

Goal says boyhood United fan Maguire is 'flattered' by the thought of leading Solskjaer's young defence into the future.

Solskjaer has plenty of centre-backs but wants former Hull City man Maguire to raise the quality of his defensive ranks.

Manchester City have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Maguire.
