Leicester Prepare For Manchester United's Harry Maguire Assault

Man Utd team news

Manchester United won't get a chance to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City in the January transfer window.

Maguire will be in the Leicester squad for tomorrow's Premier League opener at United and Puel joked: "I can confirm he is going..."

Maguire, with his qualities on the ball as well as prowess in the air, could have been a top signing for Manchester United, who only faced disappointment in their bid to bolster the heart of defence.

The 21-year-old scored the victor in the Manchester derby nearly two years ago, and is determined to hit the back of the net at United's home ground again after rediscovering his best form this pre-season. I think it is going to be a big season for the whole team and we are in good shape now.

"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".

When that was put to Puel, he said: 'We will see what happens in his future but I am happy to keep Harry and happy with his attitude. But it is looking good this season. "It would have been a good reward for our play".

Puel was not exactly watching through his fingers but when asked if he expected other clubs to want to sign Maguire on the back of his displays this summer, the Frenchman admitted he was not surprised. It is not serious'.

Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has acknowledged that he must target an improved season at the King Power Stadium.

Meanwhile Croat Benkovic, 21, arrives from Dinamo Zagreb for £13m.

"It is very good to have Harry back", Leicester left-back Chilwell told reporters after he and Maguire played in Leicester's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Old Trafford on Friday.

He becomes the sixth new arrival of the summer following the acquisitions of Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal.
