MANCHESTER UNITED have launched an £80million offer for Harry Maguire – as Leicester left him out of their official squad number video.
But Old Trafford bosses fear the Foxes will turn down their official world-record bid, with the King Power club insisting on £85m.
Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans were shown proudly showing off their new shirts in the clip.
But England centre-back Maguire, 26, was nowhere to be seen in the video posted at 10am this morning.
SunSport told you Maguire is growing increasingly frustrated with Leicester’s insistence he stay – and United now fear the situation is likely to rumble on into next week.
Maguire feels Leicester have done a U-turn on a gentleman’s agreement the parties made a year ago when he signed a new contract.
The east midlands club said they would let him go for a fair offer and the England defender believes both bids have been decent.
Maguire has told the club, boss Brendan Rodgers and all of the players he wants to leave.
It is understood Rodgers understands Maguire’s frustrations over the situation.
