Jose Mourinho submits three-man shortlist to replace Chris Smalling

Manchester United transfer news Jose Mourinho wants Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire to bolster defence

Manchester United transfer news Jose Mourinho wants Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire to bolster defence

The 25-year-old, who still has four years left on his contract at the King Power, has impressed many this season including Gareth Southgate, who looks set to bring him to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The same story says that a move for the 25-year-old could result in Smalling losing his place to Maguire to both club and country.

Maguire, who joined the Foxes from Hull at the start of the season, is being lined up to bolster the Red Devils' back line, according to the Mirror.

The defender has been a regular fixture in the Leicester City team so far this season and has scored two goals and made four assists in 33 Premier League games so far this term.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their FA Cup semi-final showdown with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley next weekend as they look to try and end the campaign with a trophy.

Will Mourinho get his men?

It seems nearly certain United will look to once again invest in their back line this summer, and Maguire could be one homegrown option to replace Smalling, whose chances at Old Trafford appear to be running out.
