Leicester defender Harry Maguire has been linked to Manchester United

After a week of full training, Maguire and Vardy are in Puel's thoughts, but the Frenchman confirmed on Thursday morning that a decision would be made following City's afternoon session.

"It has been a hard pre-season with all the worldwide players coming back step by step and without the good levels and freshness necessary to play 90 minutes".

"We found success with good moves and good quality and perhaps in the second-half we had good energy to finish this performance for another result but I think at the end it is a disappointment".

"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".

"I'm happy about Harry and Jamie [Vardy], they came back with a smile". It gives us a couple of weeks to recover people and to prepare people better and to focus on the players that are available. It was important for him to remain with us and keep strong momentum for this season.


It has been reported that it would take a world-record bid for a defender, exceeding the £75million Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk, to even tempt Leicester to sell Maguire. It is not serious'.

The 21-year-old Iheanacho, who was signed from Manchester City in 2017, has scored eight goals in 28 appearances for Leicester City.

In addition to keeping two of their major stars Leicester were also busy bringing in new blood signing centre-backs Caglar Soyuncu (Freiburg) and Filip Benkovic (Dinamo Zagreb) for a combined £29million on the final day of the window.

When I came in October Harry was a very good player but he had to make progress in the defensive aspect and to sometimes play quicker and start with the ball better'.

It was too little too late for Leicester but Puel felt his side deserved more from their trip to Manchester, where James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Rachid Ghezzal debuted.
