Manchester United are being linked with a £35 million move for Leicester City and England defender Harry Maguire.

The Mirror reports that United are interested in the former Sheffield United defender, who could be seen as a replacement for Chris Smalling.

Maguire has impressed this season since joining Leicester City, making the step up with the Foxes and becoming a regular for Gareth Southgate’s England side.

Jose Mourinho is said to be a huge admirer of the Leicester City defender, who looks set to start for England at the World Cup this summer.

Smalling has lost his place in the United defence and has found regular game time hard to come by under Jose Mourinho.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has been unable to settle on a defensive partner for Eric Bailly, something he could look to address this summer.

United have also been linked with French defender Raphael Varane and Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos in the past.
