Leicester boss Puel rules out Maguire move to Man United
Leicester City manager Claude Puel has warned Manchester United that a deadline day transfer for central defender Harry Maguire is impossible, and praised the England international's attitude amid the speculation over his future.
British media have reported that Jose Mourinho's United could be set to launch a world record bid for a defender on the back of Maguire's impressive World Cup campaign in Russia where England reached the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.
"Harry is happy to remain with us. And I am happy with his attitude. He came back with (Leicester and England team-mate) Jamie (Vardy) with a smile, with freshness."
"For us, it (a Maguire transfer) is not possible. It is not serious. We have to prepare for this season with good possibilities," he added.
Earlier on Thursday, young Croatian defender Filip Benkovic became the sixth new arrival at the King Power Stadium after Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira, James Maddison, Rachid Ghezzal and Danny Ward.
