Slab-Head the Red - Harry Maguire's odds shorten to sign for Manchester United

His World Cup performances have caught the eye of Mourinho.

The Leicester man was the surprise package of the tournament for England, with his rampaging runs and bullet headers making him a fan favourite this summer.

Tottenham were clear favourites to sign Maguire from the Foxes, but the bookmakers have now thrown United’s name in the mix.

Jose has plenty of options at the back, but many believe he’s set to off-load a few of last season’s poor performers.

The likes of Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Daley Blind and Mattro Darmian are all rumoured to be leaving the club this summer. Potential moves could open the door for a big money move for Harry Maguire.

In the last two days Skybet have cut the transfer from 5/1 to 3/1, and Betway have gone from 8/1 to 3/1. William Hill remain at 8/1 for Harry Maguire to make the move up north.

Since England got knocked out of the World Cup, 75% of bets have been on Harry Maguire moving to Manchester. Surprisingly 10% of the punts have been on him going to Barcelona, we’d love to see the former Hull man mixing it with Messi and co.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “'Slab Head' has a superb World Cup and, despite only joining Leicester last summer, he will surely have a host of suitors.

“Having lost Mahrez to Manchester City already, it would be a surprise if they did allow him to leave.”
