Transfer Talk: Maguire tops United's wishlist, but Mourinho won't 'go crazy'
From ESPN - April 15, 2018

Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window; Transfer Talk has the updates on all the latest rumours.

Maguire tops Man United shortlist

It looks like Jose Mourinho has found his first target for the summer, with Harry Maguire the latest name to be linked with a move to Manchester United.

The giant centre-back has been in impressive form since joining Leicester from Hull for 17 million, winning his first England cap in October.

Maguire could soon be on the plane to the World Cup, but first there's talk of a 35m switch to Old Trafford.

According to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho sees the 25-year-old as the ideal replacement for Chris Smalling, and could make his move as soon as the season is over.

Mourinho rules out 'crazy' spending

Man United may have lost to rock-bottom West Brom on Sunday to hand the title to Manchester City, but Mourinho is not about to go "crazy."

The United boss was frustrated by his team's performance at Old Trafford but dismissed the suggestion that he will match City's spending in the summer.

Mourinho has splashed out more than 300m on new players since joining United, but said after the defeat to West Brom: "We are not going to spend more than we can. We are not going to do anything crazy.

"We are just trying to improve a little bit more, to keep the sequence of it."
