Harry Maguire still wants Manchester United move

Harry Maguire still wants Manchester United move

CLAUDE PUEL has confirmed Harry Maguire will be at Manchester United for tonight's Premier League curtain raiser against Leicester City, but assured fans he will not be staying long.

Maguire starred against Manchester United in the Premier League season opener.

After a week of full training, Maguire and Vardy are in Puel's thoughts, but the Frenchman confirmed on Thursday morning that a decision would be made following City's afternoon session. Leicester are still adamant that they want to hold on to Maguire, and are still ready to offer him a big wage rise to keep him in their colours.

Puel said: "We have had good speaking with Harry recently and with the chairman also and we can not change our things just before a game and just before the new season, it is not possible for us".

"It's going to be hard away from home at Manchester United, but it's something that we're going to have to be courageous enough to try".

"Harry is happy to remain with us".




"I like a player with a possibility to start from the back and Harry is this player".

"We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad".

It is believed that Leicester now value Maguire at £75 million, a fee that United board were (understandably) unwilling to meet.

"It's disappointing for the players because they gave their best", said Puel.

It was too little too late for Leicester but Puel felt his side deserved more from their trip to Manchester, where James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Rachid Ghezzal debuted.

The transfer window has officially shut, closing at 5pm on Thursday meaning the Englishman can no longer leave unless it's to a club that's overseas.
