Manchester United fans are starting to feel uneasy after it emerged that one of their transfer targets for this summer’s window scored in a pre-season friendly.
On Tuesday evening, Leicester City played a pre-season friendly against Cambridge United winning 3-0. Interestingly, Harry Maguire was among the goalscorers, finishing a cross from Ben Chilwell with a trademark thumping header at the back post.

Manchester United are one of two clubs currently said to be chasing the signing of the England international, along with rivals Manchester City, with Brendan Rodgers confirming the club have already turned down two offers for Maguire (via Leicestershire Live).
The goal was a reminder of just how good Maguire is in the air. With that aerial ability, it is no surprise that Leicester City have slapped such a huge price tag on the 26-year-old. Fans were very uncertain after news of his goal.
Here is a selection of tweets from fans after Maguire’s goal in Leicester City’s pre-season friendly:
“done deal” lmao
