Gary Neville reveals why Manchester United will struggle to sign Harry Maguire and Christian Eriksen

Gary Neville has warned Manchester United that they will struggle in the transfer window (Sky Sports) Gary Neville claims Manchester United are struggling to complete a deal for Harry Maguire due to the increased competition for the Leicester City centre-back. United are in the market for a new central defender but Leicester are demanding £90 million for the England international. Daniel James has been signed from Swansea City but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen for United to complete the majority of their business before the players report back for pre-season training at the start of July. Neville, however, believes United face a difficult task of beating their rivals to land their top targets. ‘It’s difficult to do business, it’s not easy,’ Neville told Sky Sports.
