But Claude Puel wants to build his side around Maguire and Leicester are ready to demonstrate the 25-year-old's value to them with a new contract worth up to £100,000 a week that would leave the player behind only Vardy in the club's pay stakes.

"I told you were were looking at six profiles, Henrichs of Bayer is also a possibility".

Jose Mourinho's men are expected to play familiar foes Liverpool on Saturday night as they amp up their preparations for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Mourinho has been aware of Darmian's desire to leave the Premier League club for a while, but a right back injury crisis at Old Trafford could mean the United manager is forced to hold on to the Italian defender for the time being. It is a hard decision to leave.

'Regarding Santiago Arias, I don't know yet, we are on the way, so it's all to see'.

"I'm waiting to see what happens", added Darmian.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed the club are interested in signing Manchester United star Matteo Darmian.

"If I stay, I stay and I do what I did up until now".

The former AC Milan full-back has informed United he wants to leave after being constantly overlooked by Mourinho.

"The board and the coach need to get together; he's not even close to reaching his full potential and United is the best for him".

Last season's Serie A runners-up have made signing a new right-back to provide competition for Elseid Hysaj one of their top priorities this summer.

Darmian has been linked with a transfer to Inter and Juventus this summer and has now indicated a preference to return to his homeland. "If I go it is because the offer that another team makes will be good".

The Leicester defender is believed to be keen to head to Old Trafford, despite his club's determination to resist United's approach.
