Sources: Man Utd agree record £80m Maguire fee

Manchester United have 'completed' an £80 million deal for defender Harry Maguire, according to reports. Sam Wallace from the Telegraph is reporting that a basic deal has been struck between United and Leicester on Friday morning with add-on fees likely to follow. The 26-year-old England international was left out of Leicester's squad ahead of their pre-season friendly against Atalanta at the King Power Stadium on Friday night. The fee is set to be a world record for a defender, with Virgil Van Dijk moving to Liverpool for £75 million in January 2018. After completing a move from Hull in 2017, Maguire has been a regular starter for Leicester in the last two Premier League seasons and signed a five-year contract with the Foxes last September. But now his move to United is set to be completed after a prolonged transfer saga and will become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's third summer signing behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
