Man Utd Agree £80m Deal For Leicester Defender

Manchester United have reached £80m agreement to sign England centre-back Harry Maguire from Leicester on a world-record fee.

Concise News learnt that the 26-year-old is expected to complete a medical at the club at the weekend.

Maguire will become United’s third summer signing following Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, who arrived from Crystal Palace and Swansea respectively.

The deal means Maguire becomes the world’s most expensive defender, eclipsing the £75m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk in January 2018.

United had a long-standing interest in Maguire but they backed away from a deal 12 months ago because they felt the £70m that would be needed for a transfer to be concluded was too high.

He signed a five-year contract at Leicester last September and manager Brendan Rodgers made it clear at the end of the season he felt Maguire could develop even more if he remained at the club.

Man Utd fans will be hoping that with the Maguire deal out of the way, Ed Woodward will go all out to bring in Bruno Hernades from Sporting Lisbon and that Paul Pogba stays.
