Manchester United are reportedly still confident of reaching an agreement with Leicester City for central defender Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils are believed to be the only side in the running to sign the England international following Manchester City's decision to look elsewhere.

Leicester apparently increased their asking price for Maguire to £70m, which City were reluctant to pay.

Sky Sports News reports that United remain keen to sign the 26-year-old, though, and a source close to the negations has described their pursuit as "very much alive".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have already signed two British players this summer, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James arriving for a combined £65m.

Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina is another reported target on Solskjaer's radar.

Report: Manchester United pull out of Sean Longstaff move

Newcastle United youngster Sean Longstaff is reportedly no longer a target for Manchester United after they were quoted £50m for the midfielder.

Following last season's disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has focused on bringing in young, British players in the transfer window.

Daniel James was signed from Swansea City for £15m and Aaron Wan-Bissaka followed close behind from Crystal Palace for £50m.

Longstaff was touted as the next name on Solskjaer's list, but The Mirror claims that Newcastle's reluctance to accept anything lower than £50m has forced Man United to look elsewhere.

The Red Devils are rumoured to value the 21-year-old at no more than £20m as he has started just eight Premier League matches.

Meanwhile, it is believed that Steve Bruce will take over as the Magpies' new manager as early as Friday.
