Manchester City will have to break the world record £75m fee for a defender if they are to sign Leicester City's Harry Maguire this summer.

The Sun report that Guardiola was suitably impressed by the Leicester centre-half when the two sides met at the Etihad Stadium at the beginning of May, and has now decided he wants to add him to his expensively-assembled squad.
