The Citizens were also believed to be interested in luring the 26-year-old to Manchester, but now appear to have been beaten to his signature by their bitter rivals.

"Maguire is an excellent, top-class player," the Spanish tactician said, according to Sportsmole.

"We were interested, but we could not afford it. United afforded it.

"He's an excellent player, he made an incredible World Cup (in 2018), he's strong in the air, good with the ball in the build-up and he's so fast.

"Congratulations for United for this signing."
