​Man Utd 'miles away' from signing Leicester defender Maguire

Manchester United are not close to signing Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

ESPNsaysUnited are 'miles away' from meeting Leicester's valuation for the player.

Leicester want a world record fee for a defender, but such an £80 million figure is deemed as too high for United to meet.

While they are eager to sign the 26-year-old England defender, they do not want to be seen as bending backwards to clubs on transfer fees.

It is possible the two sides will reach a compromise in the coming days, as Maguire is reportedly keen on making the move.
