Leicester’s plan to hold onto Harry Maguire revealed
Harry Maguire & Leicester City
It’s been an unbelievable summer for Leicester City centre-half Harry Maguire.
Maguire scored England’s opener in their World Cup quarter-final clash against Sweden.
Looking at the broader picture, Maguire has been superb for the Three Lions this summer in Russia. Alongside Kyle Walker and John Stones, Maguire has edged Chelsea’s Gary Cahill out of the England XI.
On Wednesday, the Times have reported on how Leicester plan to hold onto Maguire for the foreseeable future.

Maguire’s new Foxes deal
The Times announce that Leicester are set to reward Maguire with a new deal at the King Power Stadium.
Maguire is under contract with the Foxes until 2022. Yet, in a preemptive move aimed at locking down the defender, Leicester are ready to give Maguire are significant pay rise:
Leicester City are preparing to offer Harry Maguire an improved contract to ward off potential suitors who could move to sign him after his impressive World Cup displays this summer.
Leicester are willing to increase Maguire’s weekly wage to £120,000 per week, making the England defender one of the club’s highest earners.
Should Maguire put pen to paper, he’ll earn the same sort of wages as Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel.
In other Leicester news, Riyad Mahrez finally left the club to join Man City on Tuesday.
Mahrez cost the Sky Blues 60 million pounds.
Croatia vs England
Maguire should be back in action at the World Cup on Wednesday as England take on Croatia in the semi-final.
In an amazing fact, the last time England were in a World Cup semifinal, Croatia didn’t exist. They only gained independence in 1991.
