Ndidi Rated Best Passer In Leicester Defeat To Man United

Manchester United team news Leicester

Manchester United are lining up a late £65m bid to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City before Thursday's transfer deadline, according to reports in the British media.

Puel outlined some of the qualities he thought made Maguire of interest to United.

Jose Mourinho's United emerged winners over a spirited Leicester in the season-opening Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.

"We dominated this game with good play and a lot of chances". Coming from Man City to Leicester and playing against Man United I think the City fans are going to support us in that game.

He said: "I was happy with the progress of Harry in the second half of last season". Of course I am happy about his performance and the performance of the other players. We have to prepare for this season with good possibilities'. "It would have been a good reward for our play".

Riyad Mahrez responded negatively when Leicester blocked an initial move from Manchester City in January but Puel is confident that Maguire will have a different reaction.

"For us it (a Maguire transfer) is not possible".

Chilwell who says his team-mate has no plans to quit the King Power Stadium. We need to continue and build some good momentum.

LEICESTER signed two more defenders yesterday - Caglar Soyuncu and Filip Benkovic - despite keeping hold of Harry Maguire.

That makes it seven summer signings at Leicester - following Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal.

The transfer window has officially shut, closing at 5pm on Thursday meaning the Englishman can no longer leave unless it's to a club that's overseas.

The 25-year-old will be in Leicester's squad for tomorrow's Premier League opener at Old Trafford and Puel said joking: "I can confirm he is going to Manchester but only for a couple of hours".
