Why I snubbed Manchester United move – Harry Maguire reveals

has revealed Manchester United did make a move for him this summer, but he is happy to still be at Leicester, the UK Mirror reports.

United boss Jose Mourinho targeted the England defender after his impressive World Cup campaign.

But Maguire insists he had no problem continuing with the Foxes, saying he owes them a debt of gratitude.

The centre-half, signed from relegated Hull last summer, said: “Obviously going into a World Cup there was always going to be if he were successful as we were there were always going to be players who came under interest that is part and parcel of the game.

“I spoke with Leicester after a bit of interest from clubs, and they reiterated that I wasn’t for sale and I respected that decision.

“They gave me an opportunity to play in the Premier League, when I had just been relegated with Hull. They gave me that opportunity and it is a club I am really enjoying my time at. I am playing week in and week out which is important to me.

“They have given me the platform to play at the World Cup so I feel I owe them and I respect that decision. Now I am looking forward to the season.”
