Manchester United and Manchester City are set to compete for the signing of Leicester Citys Harry Maguire following the conclusion of Englands UEFA Nations League campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the lookout for a first-choice central defender while Pep Guardiola is after a replacement for Vincent Kompany who has become player-manager at Anderlecht.

According to Sky Sports News, Leicester City do not want to sell Maguire but value him at around £80m which would eclipse the £75m fee that Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil Van Dijk.

A deal in excess of £80m would also make Maguire comfortably the most expensive English player of all-time ahead of Kyle Walker who cost City £50m when moving from Spurs in 2017.
