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

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 Russian Federation where England reached the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years.

Man United will face off against Harry Maguire and co. tomorrow night in the Premier League curtain raiser, and with the window now close it will become apparent over the coming weeks whether the club's purse strings should've opened a little further during the summer months.

"He made a good performance (against Lille), but the most important thing is to present against Manchester United", Puel told Leicester City Mercury.

"I think he's a fantastic player, he proved it again at the World Cup after not playing so many games last season".

United have five centre-halves at the club in the shape of Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof as well as Rojo.

Today Jose Mourinho was likely sat in his hotel room, ordering room service and shouting obscenities at Sky Sports news as Transfer Deadline Day quickly came and went and his mood wouldn't have been helped by Claude Puel trolling him. He has made that clear to all of us.

Kasper Schmeichel has played for Leicester City since 2011.

"Harry is happy to remain with us".

The Foxes paid Manchester City a fee of £25 million last summer, but Iheanacho contributed just three goals from his seven starts and 14 substitute outings in the Premier League.

"It was a good performance from my team with the play and the good moves, with the chances we had to finish in the first half".

United, according to sources, also had reservations about Boateng's injury record and offered to take the German on loan before Bayern Munich knocked back the proposal. A tentative enquiry for Diego Godin, 32, seemed to only to speed up the Uruguay international's contract negotiations with Atletico Madrid.
