Leicester City defender Harry Maguire can’t wait to get started against Manchester United in Friday’s season-opener

The 25-year-old had been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer following his impressive displays for England at the World Cup that saw the national side reach the last four of the competition for the first time since 1990.

While Maguire was believed to have been keen on moving to United this summer, a move failed to materialise with Leicester boss Claude Puel even mocking the media about it afterwards.

But the Maguire has put the setback behind him and is now looking forward to facing the Red Devils for the 2018/19 Premier League opener on Friday night.

“Can’t wait for the season tomorrow,” he wrote on social media last night.

Maguire incidentally scored a late equaliser for Leicester the last time the two sides met in December 2017.
