 The Leicester City defender, 25, is wanted by Jose Mourinho before the season kicks off on August 10. Maguire starred at the World Cup for England and Leicester City have put a huge price on his head to ward off interested parties. But the Mail say Maguire is confident he will complete a move to United where he will link up with Mourinho - regardless of the price. United have spent £75million this summer on Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant but Mourinho is still not happy with his squad. The United boss had a subtle dig at Ed Woodward yesterday when he said: "I would get two more players. But one thing is what I would like, another thing is what is going to happen." Mourinho also admitted his current United squad is not good enough to win the Premier League title. Mourinho believes that United are still two players short of mounting a serious challenge for next season's crown. While Liverpool have spent £175m strengthening their squad this summer, United's only significant outlay has been £52m on Brazilian midfielder Fred. Asked if the squad were good enough to fight for the title, Mourinho would only say: "I don't answer to your question."   Already without 10 first-team players, including World Cup winner Paul Pogba and United's England contingent, who remain on extended breaks following their exploits in Russia, the failure to land his top targets has compounded Mourinho's annoyance. Even though United have a favourable start to the league campaign, with Tottenham the only one of their direct rivals to face in their opening eight games, Mourinho forecast a tough outlook with the new season just a fortnight away. "If you look to the players Chelsea and Liverpool have in pre-season, also Arsenal, if you compare, you see the difference of the situation," said Mourinho ahead of tonight's friendly against AC Milan.  "Our first match of the season is against Leicester and the second is against Brighton. "It's clear it's a much better situation for Leicester, a team working for six weeks minimum with all the players except one defender and one striker. "I don't think Brighton have any player that isn't doing a very good pre-season with lots of training and matches."
