Maguire earned plenty of new admirers for his strong performances for England at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.
But he can not see Real Madrid letting the 25-year-old go anytime soon.
Julien Laurens shares his insights on Paul Pogba's cryptic social media post after Manchester United's win over Leicester.
The England defender is still a target for Jose Mourinho and Leicester have made moves to cover for that eventuality, with two names on their shopping list.
Man United will face off against Harry Maguire and co. tomorrow night in the Premier League curtain raiser, and with the window now close it will become apparent over the coming weeks whether the club's purse strings should've opened a little further during the summer months.
After a week of full training, Maguire and Vardy are in Puel's thoughts, but the Frenchman confirmed on Thursday morning that a decision would be made following City's afternoon session.
Leicester have already lost influential winger Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City in the current transfer window, and Puel wants to keep the rest of his core group of players at the club.
Sources have told ESPN FC that United, who had the second best defensive record in the league last season, were concerned at the size of the fees quoted by Leicester for Maguire and by Tottenham for Alderweireld and decided both deals did not represent value for money.
They are understood to be disappointed that Old Trafford bosses didn't award them new deals this year.
Discussing his side's pre-season preparations, Puel addressed the difficulties of adapting around the World Cup, which resulted in 10 players returning at a staggered rate over the summer.
However, the Red Devils passed up the opportunity to sign him, with Victor Lindelof being the preferred signing for Mourinho.
