Harry Maguire has told Leicester City that he wishes to leave the club.

After joining up with the Foxes’ pre-season training camp in France following an extended break, Maguire appears to have finally cleared his future out.

According to Sky Sports, the centre-back has informed his fellow teammates as well as manager Brendan Rodgers that he is now ready to secure a transfer away from the King Power outfit.

He believes that after spending two successful seasons with Leicester City and performing impressively for England at the World Cup, it is finally time to step up and further his career.

However, Leicester have made it clear that they will only approve of the 26-year-old’s departure if they receive a world-record transfer fee for a defender – north of the £75m Liverpool coughed up for Virgil van Dijk.

Manchester United seem to be leading this race at present, having tabled a bid worth £70m earlier this month.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have also expressed their willingness to match their inter-city rivals’ bid for the England international.

With his intentions now clear and public, it only appears to be a matter of time until Maguire’s next destination is confirmed. Where will he end up?
