Manchester United have made an improved offer worth £60m plus £20m add ons for Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire, according to journalist Ian McGarry.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been chasing Maguire all summer after identifying the England international as a prime target as the United boss looks to wrap-up his third signing of the window having already splashed out on Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Norwegian coach desperately needs to improve a defence that conceded 54 Premier League goals last season and Maguire would be a big upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones if he moved to Old Trafford.

We’ve seen United linked with a number of alternative centre-back targets in recent days as Leicester continue to demand a world record fee for a defender after rejecting Man Utd’s opening £70m offer [source: Sky Sports] for Maguire.

However, it seems the Manchester giants have now gone back in with an improved offer with Ian McGarry and Times journalist Duncan Castles claiming today that a fresh bid worth £60m upfront and £20m in add ons has been put on the table.

New customer offer. Place 5 x €/£10 or more bets to receive €/£20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. Full T&Cs Apply. 18+|Gamble Aware.

Speaking to Castles on his Transfer Window Podcast show, McGarry said:

We’ll start with news of a renewed offer from Manchester United to Leicester City for Harry Maguire.

It still doesn’t quite match Leicester’s expectations because the upfront payment is £60m with £20m in add ons. Which of course takes it up to Leicester’s expected valuation of the player at £80m, but it doesn’t take it to the £80m upfront which we understand Leicester are hoping for.

Castles responded by saying he didn’t think Leicester would be able to reject United’s latest offer but we’ll have to wait and see how the Foxes respond over the coming days.

A deal worth £80m including add ons would be a huge investment from United but it would be worth it if the 26-year-old helped improve their defence and got them back into the top four next season.

Maguire has become one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League since joining Leicester from Hull two years ago and he’s now an established England international so he’d be a terrific signing if United could pull it off.

    It is right known that Harry Maguire is the best one for united, but i don’t expect united to improve thier offer more than that £70m. Instead of that, they should go and sign £45m Milenkovic from Lazio or €66m Dias from Benfica.

    I don’t know why Ed Woodward want to spend £80m on Harry while £25m for Elderweireld can solve the problem and £60m or£65m is enough for Fernandes please Woodward get us Elderweireld and Fernandes deals done please

      Harry Maguire staying in a Royal Blue shirt then, for this season at least.
      Looks like Ed Woodward needs a new calculator and another chat with the Glazers.
      MUFC need some money to repair the roof, as well as getting shot of Pogba and Sanchez first.
      Hey Ho.

    Solskjaer, this is getting tedious, pay up or shut up. The price is £85m to £90m.
    I know its a lot for a team that cannot offer CL football but paying £50m for a novice full back who was dire at the U21 Europeans was the ridiculous purchase.
