British media have reported that Jose Mourinho's United could be set to launch a world record bid for a defender on the back of Maguire's impressive World Cup campaign in Russian Federation where England reached the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.

Asked about United's interest, Leicester boss Puel joked with the media at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

The same article says that Leicester City are closing in on two deals to sign centre-halves this summer as they line up potential replacements for Maguire.
