A promise made by Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha to Harry Maguire before the Leicester City owner died in a helicopter crash could ensure the defender finally gets the go-ahead to join Manchester United this as reported by Sportsmail.
The two clubs are believed to have struck a deal for the England defender but Sports Agenda understands that following the World Cup, Maguire and Vichai shook hands over an agreement for the player to be allowed to leave this summer if one of the big clubs should come in for him at an acceptable fee.
Manchester United are willing to go to £90million to land the 26-year-old England star while Premier League champions Manchester City are reluctant to go beyond £80million as they hunt a replacement for departed captain Vincent Kompany.
But while Leicester resisted all bids to sell Maguire last summer the star will be allowed to leave in this window.
Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, son of Vichai who was tragically killed in a helicopter crash at City’s stadium last October, has told Maguire the Foxes will be true to their word – if their valuation is met.
Maguire fancies a move to City and the chance to win multiple trophies under Pep Guardiola.
