According to Phil Thompson, the team Liverpool should try to beat the team of Manchester United by signing of Harry Maguire, the Leicester City defender in the summer transfer window final days.

Sky Sports know that the Premier League, of last season and FA Cup runners-up will launch a different bid to sign the center-back of England, but at the same time they would require an offer of world record to acquire Maguire. Worldwide, Virgil van Dijk became the most expensive defender when he switched from Southampton to Liverpool last January for £75m.

Debut for Chelsea and Leicester are holding offers of similar type as United looked to retrieve a summer at the time when the Jose Mourinho manager has complained over their signings lacking. At the time, Maguire played each minute of his maiden league campaign (MLC) with Leicester and they were rewarded with a central role in World Cup plans of Gareth Southgate, playing each game as the Three Lions entered in the semi-finals. At the same time, goalkeeper Alisson, Fabinho, midfielders Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri the winger has arrived at Anfield this summer, but Thompson wanted to see Liverpool move for Maguire in-order to improve their back-four. ‘I really like what Jurgen Klopp did by trying to make players stronger from behind to the front three and to get more number of goals from that area,’ the ex-Reds man said.

‘Fabinho, Keita and Shaqiri could provide additional firepower. Adam alias Lallana is also back. So, with another center-back in the team, the team of Liverpool can be a real force; I would be considered at snatching Harry Maguire from under the noses of Manchester United.’ The squad of United has continued to have an indifferent summer with numbers of players either injured or unavailable because of their participation in the World Cup latter stages.
