"We're Manchester United, we don't overpay' - Ole Gunnar hints at abandoning Maguire chase

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted at abandoning their chase for highly-rated Leicester defender Harry Maguire. 

The defender has been a target for the Red Devils, but Leicester City's valuation of the England international has been the subject of debate instead.

Speaking on Wednesday however, Soksjaer admitted that they are in the market for players, but would not overpay for anyone.

“We're still in the market looking to do some business, but we're patient," the Norwegian said.

"We're Manchester United. We don't have to sell and don't have to overpay. You have to have the right players at the right price,"  he added. 

United are said to have had their £70million bid rejected for Maguire, with the Foxes holding out for their full valuation of £90m.

The club has already forked out £70m for Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka deals, but seem unwilling to pay £90m for the highly sought-after defender. 

Rivals Manchester City are also said to be interested in taking the 26-year-old defender to Etihad, with Pep Guardiola seeing him as a perfect replacement for Vincent Kompany, who left at the end of last season.
