Leicester City coach, Brendan Rogers has said a fee has been agreed with Manchester United for the sale of Harry Maguire, but it is now up to the player to agree to personal terms with the Red Devils.
Brendan Rodgers disclosed this as he spoke to reporters after Leicester’s pre-season friendly with Atalanta.
He, however, added the situation should be wrapped up early next week.
His words, “There has been contact between the two clubs, a fee has been agreed,”
“And then it’s a case of Harry having an opportunity to speak to them to see if he can find an agreement on personal terms.
“That’s something that is of interest to him. And, then, of course, a medical. Apart from that there is not a great deal more to say.
“Probably after the weekend we will know more. But it’s clear of course the two teams have been talking and a fee has been agreed.”
On Maguire, “He’s a special player and not a player that we want to lose,” continued Rogers. “There’s still some work to do for it to go through.
“You always have to prepare for that ‘what if?’ and a club like ourselves needs to have that pipeline of players ready to be able to bring in. We have a number of options if Harry is to go, but that’s something that’s already been going on for a number of weeks.
“If it does happen, we will look at our options.”
