Manchester City have bowed out of the race to sign Harry Maguire this summer after the club were put off by Leicester’s €90m valuation.

It means that Manchester United are now the only side in the running to land the England international who signed a five-year extension on his contract last year.

The Foxes are loathed to lose one of their most influential players and as such have slapped a monumental price tag on the central defender – a price tag that has, according to The Sun, put off City.

They say that the reigning Premier League champions do rate Maguire highly, but feel that Leicester’s asking price is well above the market rate and will now look elsewhere for defensive options.

Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake is the one being linked with a switch to the Etihad, with the south coast club ready to sell for a more reasonable €40m.
