According to The Telegraph,United turned down the opportunity to sign Leicester and England centre-back Harry Maguire, 25, for £15m last summer.

Leicester paid £12 million rising to £17 million in June last year for Maguire, with United opting to pass on the opportunity to bring the player to Old Trafford. United instead signed Sweden centre half Victor Lindelof for £31 million, having also considered a move for Michael Keane, who ended up leaving Burnley for Everton.  

Maguire’s stock has since risen dramatically after a strong debut season with Leicester and impressive showing for England at the World Cup finals.  Jose Mourinho, the United manager, had been desperate to sign a centre-half this summer but a deal for a number of targets failed to materialise.
