Manchester City would have to wait until the end of the 2018 World Cup in Russia to see if they would land Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.
The former Hull City defender remains highly sought-after by the Premier League’s big six after yet another outstanding season that has seen him win the club’s Player of the for the fifth year running.
He was the club player of the year for three consecutive seasons at Sheffield United and won it in his single season at Hull City, before clinching Leicester City’s edition this season.
Pep Guardiola is a big time admirer of the 4 times England international and he made a point by praising the defender after Manchester City’s Carabao Cup match against the Foxes earlier in the season.
Maguire is however, happy in Leicester and recently signed a new 5 years deal with the Foxes, and he is not interested in talking about his future until England are back home from the World Cup.
While he hopes to remain with Leicester, he would be willing to listen to offers at that time, and Guardiola hopes he can convince him to move to the Etihad.
Leicester City are likely to demand a huge transfer fee, and they showed in their handling of Manchester City’s bid for Riyad Mahrez in the January transfer window that they would never allow themselves to be bullied into selling their player.
