Transfer: Man United ready to pay £80m for Premier League defender after Lukaku is sold to Inter Milan

Manchester United are ready to pay Leicester £80m for Harry Maguire after Romelu Lukaku is sold to Inter Milan, according to Daily Star.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side are desperate to add to their defence and have made it their biggest priority this summer.

United conceded 54 league goals last season which was their worst tally since 1978/79, and they will now be playing in the Europa League for the second time in three years.

And the club has set sights on Leicester ace Maguire despite the Foxes’ huge asking price.

Leicester have slapped a whopping £90m price-tag on the former Hull man, who cost them £17m two years ago.

United are reluctant to go as high as that fee and have offered £70m – but will up their bid when one deal is done.

Lukaku is attracting attention from Inter Milan after Antonio Conte made the Belgian his top target this summer.

The former Everton forward is keen to leave after being told by Solskjaer that he is no longer first choice.

But United are demanding £90m for the striker, a fee that Inter have so far failed to meet.
