Manchester United are prepared to offer Leicester City the chance to land Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo as part of a summer deal for their star defender Harry Maguire, according to the Sun.
They report that Red Devils are keen to sign the towering England international, but are learning the asking price a problem during a summer in which they are grappling with overhauling their roster without the lure of UEFA Champions League football.
That has seemingly led them to offer up Eric and Marcos to effectively help Leicester City replace Maguire as part of the potential deal that would see the player move to Old Trafford.
Ivorian international Eric cost United a reported (BBC) £30m when the player joined back in 2016, while Marcus apparently (BBC) cost £16m under Louis van Gaal back in 2014.
But neither man’s Manchester United career has worked out as planned, with both of them getting a status for being impetuous centre-backs with poor injury records.
Eric has the brighter future and there’s a player in there if Brendan Rodgers could bring it out and at just 25, the Ivorian could perhaps replace Harry if he got himself fit and confident.
But the Argentine star looks something of a lost cause and would not add a great deal to the Foxes backline in spite of the fact he can play as a centre half and left back.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid hierarchy have reportedly set a limit for what they are ready to pay for Manchester United star Paul Pogba, However, according to L’Equipe,
Los Blancos will not spend any more than £106 million on France international after their recent spending spree on other players.
