​Leicester don't plan to buy replacement for Man Utd target Maguire

Leicester City are not planning to sign a replacement if they sell Harry Maguire.

It is no secret that Manchester City and Manchester United both want to sign the English center half.

United are more likely to meet Leicester's demand for a world record fee for a defender.

However, Sky Sports understands that if Maguire is transferred, Leicester will not sign a defender to replace him.

Leicester looked at players like James Tarkowski and Lewis Dunk, but boss Brendan Rodgers felt neither represented good value.

They will go into their season with the players already at the club, which will include Filip Benkovic.

The latter was on loan at Celtic last term, who Rodgers managed before moving to Leicester.
