Man United Reportedly Agree £80m For Leicester Defender Maguire

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a world-record £80 million deal for Leicester and England defender, Harry Maguire.

According to English publication, The Sun, Maguire is set to fly to Manchester for his medical on Monday.

It was gathered that United will pay Leicester £60 million for the 26-year-old , with an extra £20m available in add-ons.

If the deal eventually materialise, it will trump the world record fee for a defender following Liverpool’s £75 million, which they paid Southampton for Dutch defender, Virgil van Dijk, in 2018.

Leicester have already found a replacement for Maguire with Lewis Dunk, 27, set to join from Brighton in a £45 million swoop.

Jose Mourinho had been desperate to sign the centre-back last summer after the former Hull man’s performances for England at the World Cup.

Leicester landed the Sheffield man for £17 million in 2017 and will make a healthy £43m profit straight away.
