MUFC Latest claims that Manchester United reportedly made a £70m bid for Harry Maguire. But the Foxes rejected it. United has been pursuing Maguire for quite some time now. Manchester City has had interest in the centre-back and has pursued him as well.

Manchester United shouldn’t go after a player that may be overpriced. Harry Maguire is a very good and solid defender. He isn’t a great defender like a Nemanja Vidic or a Jaap Stam. The England international does many basic things well like tackling, winning aerial battles, intercepting the ball, winning duels and closing down people. However, Manchester United should move on to another player that cost less, but will also be a quality defender.

United should be more prudent with their money and search for players that provides the quality that they want, and they should be worth the value that the club is willing to pay for. Too many players are overpriced in this transfer market. I believe that Harry Maguire is worth more like £50-£55m.

Leicester City obviously wants to set the price tag high for Maguire so that they can get more money out of the deal. Many times when you overpay as a club for players and you give them big contracts you can have financial problems in the future. I hope that we can sign a quality centre-back soon so we can get ready for the season early.

Do you think that Harry Maguire is worth £70? Should United pay that amount for him? Tell me what you think in the comments section.
