Harry Maguire responds to transfer rumours
Leicester City's Harry Maguire has quickly become one of the Premier League's best defenders, and has subsequently been sought by multiple clubs, including Manchester United. The Red Devils, who have been known to be in the hunt for a defender, have been linked with the Englishman for a while now, although no move has materialized thus far.
While several reports have claimed that he's still on United's radar, recent reports from the Mirror claim that he isn't currently thinking about club football, ahead of international duty with the English national team. As per the report, Maguire recently addressed the transfer rumours and said:
“When I’m away with England I don’t think about anything to do with club football.
“As soon as I wear this badge it’s really important for myself to focus on England and nothing else. At the moment, nothing is going through my head in terms of club football.
“I’m fully focused on the two games coming up, that’s where my head is at the moment.”
