Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has branded Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire "a fantastic player".
Maguire was strongly linked with a move to United in last summer's transfer window, having further enhanced his reputation with a series of impressive performances for England at the 2018 World Cup.
The 25-year-old was ultimately priced out of a move to Old Trafford, but Solskjaer has hinted that the defender could still be a target for the Red Devils.
"When you're only 1-0 up, anything can happen in that box. And I think that Harry Maguire has got a magnet on his head because it nearly always drops to him," Solskjaer told reporters after his team recorded a 1-0 win over Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
"A fantastic player in the box. So we knew we had to defend against him and out lads, they blocked, put their bodies on the line so it was a fantastic effort and they were fighting for each other."
Maguire, who has a contract the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2023, has scored three times in 20 Premier League appearances this season.
