Manchester United have been told Harry Maguire will cost at least £90million this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils reportedly made an improved offer of £70m for the centre-back on Tuesday, but Leicester City have denied they have received such a bid.

The Telegraph claim Leicester will not accept a bid less than £90m for Maguire and have told United to raise their bid or forget about signing the England international.

United have been locked in talks with Leicester, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to sign Maguire.

Solskjaer is determined to build his United around young, homegrown talent and has identified Maguire as the man to rejuvenate his leaky defence.

But the Foxes have made it clear United will need to pay a record fee to secure the services of Maguire.

The £75m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk stands as the record figure spent on a centre-back.
