Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has been flattered by the interest from Manchester United in securing his services this summer.

The England international has been linked with the Red Devils over the past year and earlier this month, they are said to have made a £70m bid which was swiftly rejected by the Foxes.

According to Goal.com, the 26-year-old has been flattered by the fresh interest from the Red Devils, though a transfer agreement remains far off at the present point of time.

United are likely to come up with a renewed approach to sign Maguire in the next few days but the package is still expected to be below the Foxes' £90m price tag for the defender.

The Foxes are currently under no condition to negotiate the transfer sum, given Maguire is contracted to them for another four years. United are currently in Australia in preparation for their opening pre-season game against Perth Glory.
