Man United target Harry Maguire won't move in January - Leicester's Ben Chiwell

Man United target Harry Maguire won't move in January - Leicester's Ben Chiwell

According to a report by The Irish Independent, Manchester United could have landed Harry Maguire on the cheap, had they taken up the opportunity to snap him up from Hull City last summer.

The Nigerian duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi ended on the losing side in the first game of the season in the English Premier League on Friday night at Old Trafford.

Nigerian global Kelechi Iheanacho has warned Manchester United he has them in his sights again.

Puel said: "Filip is an exciting young player who has the potential to develop even more at Leicester City Football Club. He has made that clear to all of us", said Chilwell.

"I think he's a fantastic player, he proved it again at the World Cup after not playing so many games last season".

However, Iheanacho is expected to play a role when Leicester face United at Old Trafford tonight, and the Nigeria global has suggested that he is feeling sharp ahead of the new campaign.

Maguire was one of the centre halves United were pursuing this summer only to be rebuffed by Leicester City.

"Harry, he's happy also to remain with us".

The Nigeria worldwide moved to Leicester from Manchester City last summer for £25 million, with many pundits predicting at the time that his capture could be one of the signings of the season. He played with consistency and good progress, was strong in his defensive aspect and with quality to start with the ball.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United receive encouragement from Leicester's movement in the transfer market and go big for Maguire in the next 24 hours. The 23-year-old eventually left Barcelona for Everton in a £28 million deal on deadline day.

It leaves Mourinho to head into the new season with the five centre-backs already at his disposal - Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo.
