HARRY MAGUIRE COMPLETES RECORD MANCHESTER UNITED MOVE
Manchester United have signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a world record £80m fee.
This beats the previous record paid for a defender when Liverpool forked out £75m Virgil van Dijk.
The 26-year-old has agreed a six-year contract at Old Trafford, with the option of a further year.
“When Manchester United come knocking on your door, it is an incredible opportunity.
From my conversations with the manager, I am excited about the vision and plans he has for the team.
It’s clear to see that Ole is building a team to win trophies. I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started.” said Harry Maguire.
Maguire is the second most expensive signing in English Premier League history after Paul Pogba (£89m) and becomes the second most expensive British player after Gareth Bale, who joined Real Madrid from Tottenham for £85m in 2013.
