The head of Harry Maguire could have been everywhere against a Manchester United who expected to sign him, says his teammate Ben Chilwell.

However, the performance and commitment of defender Leicester impressed Chilwell in the first game of the Premier League on Friday.

One of the three best artists of the Lions in the World Cup, the 25-year-old was strongly related to a move away from King Power Stadium just one year after arriving from Hull.

Press Association Sport understands that United was willing to make an important move for Maguire, but Leicester's firm refusal to part with another key asset meant that no deal came to fruition.

Luckily, just one day after the window closed, the defender started at Old Trafford when the Fox suffered a narrow 2-1 loss to Jose Mourinho's team.

It was a sample of what could have been, but Maguire did not flinch and impressed his teammate Chilwell with his display against United.

& # 39; Is a player from Leicester, wants to play for Leicester. He has made it clear to all of us. He will be here all season.
