Chilwell insists Maguire won't quit Leicester in January

Chilwell insists Maguire won't quit Leicester in January

Luke Shaw's first senior goal proved decisive for Man United in the opening match of the Premier League season, as they held on to beat Leicester. The season gets underway at Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho's side hosting Claude Puel, and the Portuguese tactician will be hoping to start with a win.

Among those who were credited with interest in the player, Manchester United were the suitors who were linked the most heavily.

Manchester City made Riyad Mahrez their record signing for £60million last month and Puel insists losing another of his A-listers can not be on the agenda.

The guys respond to your tweets about Manchester United, particularly Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Eric Bailly.

However, the greatest buzz around a transfer was the potential deal for Leicester City and England centre back Harry Maguire.

"The World Cup helped [He played in all three of Nigeria's games in Russian Federation, starting twice] - we didn't get to go through but it was a good experience and good fitness". He is going to be good for us.

Today Jose Mourinho was likely sat in his hotel room, ordering room service and shouting obscenities at Sky Sports news as Transfer Deadline Day quickly came and went and his mood wouldn't have been helped by Claude Puel trolling him. "He has made that clear to all of us", Chilwell added. Coming from Man City to Leicester and playing against Man United I think the City fans are going to support us in that game.

"We have good players to give assists, important to share responsibility because it was not possible to replace the level of Riyad".

"We will see what happens in his future but I am happy to keep Harry with us and I'm happy with his attitude in general".

Leicester City will adopt a more possession-based game this season instead of their traditional counter-attacking style but will not find the transition easy when they visit Manchester United tomorrow, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has said.

Manchester United were understandably hesitant to pay the sum for him, although as it now turns out, they could have landed Maguire in a much cheaper deal.
