Harry Maguire is angry at the Leicester City officials for blocking his departure.

The England international has been the topmost defensive transfer target for Manchester City as well as Manchester United this summer.

In fact, both the Mancunian giants tabled a bid in the region of £70m for the centre-back, but the offers were turned down straightaway, as the Foxes await a world record transfer sum for their prized asset.

However, this very fact has left Maguire fuming with his club’s hierarchy, according to The Sun.

The report states that Maguire has angrily accused the Leicester City officials of “pricing him out of a mega move” this summer.

He has already told his teammates about his desire to move, whilst also having spoken to manager Brendan Rodgers regarding his intention to depart from the King Power outfit.

To further highlight his case, Maguire has also cited Matthijs De Ligt’s imminent £58m switch from Ajax to Juventus.

Moreover, the 26-year-old reportedly had a gentleman’s agreement with Leicester, which was supposed to allow him to leave in case a suitable offer came by. But now, the Englishman feels the club broke that agreement by turning down two huge offers for his services.

Leicester City continue to remain in a strong negotiating position, considering the fact that Maguire signed a new 5-year deal only last September. Only time will tell whether he is allowed to secure his mega transfer this summer.
