After quickly becoming the hero of the England set-up, it sounds like Harry Maguire might be yet to receive another boon. The Leicester City man, linked with teams like Liverpool, is apparently close to agreeing on a new deal with the Foxes. At 25, he’s an impressive defensive talent and has been among the best defenders in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
However, The Daily Mirror report that a move for Maguire will not be taking place this year as he is set to sign new terms. Signing for Leicester last summer, he was a hugely important player for the team as they moved closer to securing European football once again.
With a Semi-Final clash waiting for Maguire, he’ll be likely to talk terms with the club when he returns from what he will hope is a victorious World cup campaign starting today.
With other major clubs linked with him, though, and with two more games to cement his case, Maguire might well fancy taking the chance to reach the zenith of the Premier League opportunity. If he does not, though, a large bumper payrise waits for him when he manages to return home from the World Cup.
Quicker than he looks and better on the ball than many would assume, Maguire has worked hard to come from Sheffield United in League One to this point so far. An impressive defender, you would expect that, if terms cannot be agreed, he’ll move.
