Manchester United are set to beat Manchester United to the signing of Leicester defender, Harry Maguire, the UK Mirror reports.
Maguire has been targeted by both Manchester clubs, after another impressive campaign with The Foxes.
But City have stolen a march on their rivals, because Maguire “wants to play under Pep Guardiola”.
It is understood that United were willing to offer the England international more money, but the lure of working with Guardiola, has swung it in the champions’ favour.
Also the Red Devils cannot assure Maguire of Champions League, a competition City will be trying to win next season.
Maguire has been a Leicester player for two years, joining in a £17m move from Hull in 2017.
