Manchester United will be hoping to take a huge step towards Champions League qualification when they face Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon. 

The Red Devils currently sit third in the Premier League table, three points ahead of fifth-placed Newcastle.

Manager Erik ten Hag will have plenty to think about when choosing his starting 11 for the match, with other important matches in both the league and Europa League coming up in the next few weeks.

The busy schedule may give some of United’s fringe players a chance to impress, although it appears that one of The Red Devils’ players could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer.

According to The Sun, Leicester City are looking to sign defender Harry Maguire on loan.

The England international joined United from The Foxes back in 2019 but, after being a regular at Old Trafford for three seasons, he has struggled for game time this term.

Maguire is said to be a target for former club Leicester

So far, the 30-year-old has started just five Premier League matches, making 24 appearances in total under new boss Ten Hag.

The report claims that Leicester are considering a move for Maguire as they look to reinforce their dismal defence.

So far this season, only Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth have conceded more than The Foxes, who have shipped 49 goals in total.

Maguire spent two seasons with Leicester after joining the club from Hull City in 2017, making 76 appearances across all competitions during his time there.

The player is currently contracted to Manchester United until 2025, making a potential loan spell next season a useful option.

The centre-back will be keen to secure regular first team football ahead of the European Championships in Germany next year.

Maguire is a regular for The Three Lions, with Gareth Southgate staying loyal to him despite his lack of playing time at club level.

Despite that, the defender won’t want to spend another season on the bench and risk losing his starting spot for England.
