According to a report from the Daily Mail, Manchester United are readying a £50 million bid for Leicester City's Harry Maguire, in what will be a blow to Liverpool's hopes of signing the in-demand centre-back.
The 25-year-old has come on leaps and bounds since joining the Foxes from Hull City in the summer of 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £17 million.
He is now considered to be not only a vital player for his club, but for his country as well.
Maguire's performances for England at the World Cup in Russia this summer raised some eyebrows, considering that it was his first major tournament with the Three Lions.
According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, Jürgen Klopp is a big fan of the Leicester ace, and is contemplating a summer swoop for the 6ft 2in defender.
Liverpool will face competition for the Foxes ace, however, according to the Daily Mail, in the shape of Manchester United.
Th report is only good news for Leicester, however, with a potential bidding war between the north-west giants on the horizon.
And whichever club wins the race for his signature will be in a great position from which to mount a sustained challenge for the Premier League title this season.
