Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes Leicester City are under ‘real pressure’ to keep hold of Harry Maguire this summer.

The England international was keen on a move to Old Trafford last summer but United baulked at Leicester’s £75m valuation of the defender.

Maguire impressed at the World Cup and United felt it was an inflated fee based on those performances.

However, the 25-year-old thrived for the Foxes throughout last season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, like his predecessor Jose Mourinho, is keen on Maguire.

Manchester City are also believed to be keen on signing Maguire and Neville thinks he has everything needed to make it at the top.

‘If you think of the attributes of centre-backs, he has them in abundance,’ said Neville.

‘Leicester fans won’t thank me for this, but they’re going to be under real pressure to keep him this summer.

‘We talk about John Stones being good on the ball, I actually think Maguire is the equal of him on the ball.

‘A big statement, maybe, as Stones is seen as the composed, ball-playing centre-back, but I think Maguire is just as good on the ball.’

United have already completed a deal for Swansea City winger Daniel James but there could be as many as four additional arrivals this summer.

Solskjaer wants to sign a right-back, a centre-back, a central midfielder and a forward to bolster his squad.

Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Matteo Darmian and Juan Mata could all leave, joining the likes of Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera to depart the club.
