Puel: United defeat wasn't a fair result for Leicester

Share

Manager Claude Puel has claimed that his Leicester City side deserved "a minimum of a draw" from their Premier League fixture with Manchester United.

Manchester United were understandably hesitant to pay the sum for him, although as it now turns out, they could have landed Maguire in a much cheaper deal.

"It is very good to have Harry back", Leicester left-back Chilwell told reporters after he and Maguire played in Leicester's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Old Trafford on Friday.

And Ferdinand concluded by saying Maguire needs another year at Leicester before a move to a club the size of United.

The report adds that Jose Mourinho had been looking for a central defender in the transfer window but any move for Maguire was shut down by Leicester. He has made that clear to all of us. I think it is going to be a big season for the whole team and we are in good shape now.

"The World Cup helped [He played in all three of Nigeria's games in Russian Federation, starting twice] - we didn't get to go through but it was a good experience and good fitness".

"Harry, he's happy also to remain with us". The player was offered to them for just £15 million last summer before he completed his move away from Hull City to join Leicester, who paid £12 million to sign him.

According to Manchester Evening News, Claude said: "I'm confident he's going to Manchester United, but only for a couple of hours with us".

Ed Woodward and Daniel Levy spoke once during the summer when the Tottenham chairman asked about the availability of Anthony Martial and Juan Mata - enquiries that were both rejected. The result is Jose Mourinho will have to make do with a combination of Rojo, Smalling, Bailly, Jones, Lindelof with Bailly the only one of that selection to have impressed last season.
