Manchester United closed to sign Harry Maguire - the most expensive defender in the world

Manchester United's £ 80 million offer to buy Harry Maguire has been approved by Leicester. The English player will soon have a medical examination in Manchester.

The misty media reported that Leicester City had agreed to sell Harry Maguire to Manchester United for £80m, a number that surpassed the record of £ 75m that Liverpool made when recruiting Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk in 2018 .

However, the "Reds" will not pay the £80 million all together, but divided into two parts, £ 60 million goes directly to Leicester's account and £ 20 million depending on Maguire's performance.

After an impressive performance in the "Flock of foxes" colors and the England national team, Maguire reached the sights of two Manchester clubs. The midfielder in 1993 is said to want to join Man City in order to compete for the title. However, the Premier League champions are being investigated for a breach of financial justice laws, so don't dare to boldly take the former Hull City player to Etihad.

Meanwhile, Manchester United with a clean résumé without Maguire's attention, but still own him with an unprecedented contract in history. The most expensive central defender will be in Manchester on July 14th for a medical examination before officially joining the "Red Devils".

The England international is considered by many experts to be able to change the face of Manchester United defense next season, just like how Van Dijk did at Anfield.

Maguire himself no longer wants to stick with Leicester City. Some close sources said that the defender who was born in 1993 was angry when he stated that the "Fox" management board did not create conditions for him to switch to a club with a bigger ambition.
