Man Utd chief Woodward in England to close two deals

Manchester United remain in the hunt for Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff.

The London Evening Standard says United are locked in talks with Leicester City over Harry Maguire, but are refusing to meet their £90million valuation for the England international.

Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has remained back in the UK for the first leg of the club's tour to Australia and the Far East as he attempts to complete deals for Maguire and Newcastle's Sean Longstaff.

Meanwhile Solskjaer confirmed United are close to agreeing a new contract with David de Gea.

He said: “Hopefully we can agree with David, as I've said a few times. That'll be up to the club and David to announce when that happens."
