Man Utd centre-back Maguire: Leicester should be happy with deal

Harry Maguire says Leicester were reluctant for him to join Manchester United.

United made Maguire the world's most expensive defender when they paid the Foxes £80m for his signature.

And Maguire says the deal was good for both parties.

"[The fee] doesn't bother me at all," Maguire told Inside United.

"It's something that I can't affect. Leicester wanted to keep me and they are in a great position as a club.

"Manchester United wanted to buy me and they came to an agreement. It's probably a good deal for both parties and it's something now where I want to concentrate on my football."
