Duncan Castles explains how Virgil van Dijk's move to Liverpool is affecting Harry Maguire's transfer
• The Red Devils are chasing Leicester centre-back Maguire
• Liverpool's January deal for Van Dijk is reportedly playing a key part in negotiations
Speaking on The Transfer Window Podcast, respected United correspondent Castles said: "From what I’m told, the pricing, if there is to be a price for Maguire, will be £75 million - they value him at the same level as Virgil van Dijk.
"That should probably give you an indication about why Jose Mourinho is reluctant to go down that route.
"So, we've got these last few days of the window and Manchester United are scrabbling around trying to satisfy their manager to a certain extent, and what they are doing is going to impact on the other Premier League clubs who are chasing a centre-back."
