MANCHESTER UNITED target Harry Maguire won’t quit Leicester in January.

That’s according to Foxes star Ben Chilwell who says his team-mate has no plans to quit the King Power Stadium. 

Maguire was reportedly a top target for Jose Mourinho following his impressive World Cup exploits. 

Starsport understands the Portuguese was desperate to land another defender. 

However he failed to land Maguire – or another centre-back.

Chilwell says he can forget about landing Maguire in the New Year though. 

“It is very good to have Harry back,” he said. 

“We all know what Harry is capable of, we all know how good he is. 

“He could have come here today and his head could have been all over the place, but he did brilliantly

Man Utd have been linked with Leicester and England star Harry Maguire

“He is a Leicester player, he wants to play for Leicester. 

“He has made that clear to all of us. 

“He is going to be here for the whole season.

“He is going to be good for us. We saw that again tonight, how good a player he is. 

“We are all happy that he has stayed.”

Manchester United secured a 2-1 win over Leicester last night. 

Speaking after the clash, Foxes boss Claude Puel bemoaned his side’s inability to convert a host of chances. 

“Unlucky? I think we were without the clinical edge needed to finish the good moves we had in the first half,” Puel told Sky Sports.

“It was a good performance from my team with the play and the good moves, with the chances we had to finish in the first half.

“The second half was a little more difficult without the necessary energy to push a little more.

 “But in the end, there’s disappointment and frustration for my players after the effort they put into this game.

“To concede the goal after the first seconds of the game, we need to correct this and not concede early.

“After that, we needed to be more clinical to finish our good moves and we could have had another result.

“But I am happy with the performance of my team, it’s encouraging for the future. 

“We have to keep this way and build something strong for the next games.”
