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.More news: City United: Evolution of a Rivalry

"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.
