Manchester United have moved ahead of their rivals Manchester City in the pursuit of Harry Maguire, after upping their bid to £70m for the Leicester and England defender, Sky Sports News has been told.
Maguire – along with all of the club’s other international players – was not in the group who returned to begin Leicester’s pre-season training schedule on Monday at their Belvoir Drive training complex.
It is not yet known if the England defender will join his team-mates on Sunday when they head to Évian-les-Bains for six days of training in the French Alps.
Talks between both Manchester clubs and Leicester have been ongoing for several weeks but, as yet, a deal is still thought to be some way from being agreed.
