Mourinho moves for Tottenham defender as Leicester City block Maguire’s transfer



Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is being forced to reignite his interest in Tottenham Hotspur defender, Toby Alderweireld, after being told that Leicester City will demand a sum in excess of £75 million for Harry Maguire.

Goal reports that Mourinho was initially keen on signing Alderweireld, but was put off by Spurs’ £75m price tag for the 29-year-old.

United were only willing to pay around £55m for the Belgium international.

The Red Devils switched their attention to Maguire, following his impressive display for England at the 2018 World Cup.

However, they have now been told the defender will not be available for a summer transfer.

Leicester have already lost Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City this summer and have so far failed to identify a suitable replacement for Maguire.
