Advantage Man Utd? Maguire asking price too costly for City

Leicester holding out for £90m

Manchester City's refusal to meet Harry Maguire's £90 million ($115m) asking price could hand the transfer initiative to rivals Manchester United, according to The Mirror.

The Leicester City and England central defender is proving to be hot property this summer, but reports suggest City are unimpressed with the 26-year-old's price tag - a stance which could bolster United's chances of taking the former Hull City man to Old Trafford.

Southgate rules himself out of Chelsea job

England boss Gareth Southgate has ruled himself out of a return to club football with Chelsea.

The Blues are in the hunt for a new manager after Maurizio Sarri was given the all clear to return to Italy with Juventus.

According to The Guardian, Southgate denies any interest in taking the Stamford Bridge hot seat.

"I’m committed to England, simple as that," he said. "I don’t need to hedge my bets in keeping doors open or keeping things alive. There’s no way that I would leave England at this moment in time, to take any job."
