Harry Maguire didn’t report to training today and called in sick. Sky Sports news reports that the England international told Leicester that he wants to move to Manchester United before the transfer window shuts on August 8.
Ed Woodward United’s executive vice-chairman are still holding discussions with Leicester. Woodward didn’t travel to the Far East for United’s tour of Asia. Obviously so he can get this deal done with Leicester.
Let’s hope that this deal gets done soon this week. The fact that he called out sick could be a sign that the deal is imminent. Talksport and other media sources say that a deal is close for Maguire to sign with Manchester United. If United were to get Maguire, Fernandes, Dembele or Dybala we would have a dynamic team that will be difficult to stop.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that a potential deal for Maguire will be sealed. I also hope that we can get Bruno Fernandes and Moussa Dembele who would be fine additions to the Manchester United squad.
