OFFICIAL: Manchester United signs Harry Maguire with the most expensive price in history

The price Manchester United has to pay to bring Harry Maguire to Old Trafford far exceeds the board's original expectation.

According to Sky Sports, Manchester United has reached an agreement to bring Harry Maguire from Leicester City. To complete this deal, "Red Devils" had to spend 80 million pounds.

Some other sources confirmed the Manchester United's transfer fee in this case can be up to 85 million pounds. However, Harry Maguire will also become the most expensive defender in history, surpassing the record held by Virgil Van Dijk when he joined Liverpool in 2018 (£ 75 million).

Maguire is expected to be at Carrington for a medical examination before officially signing a long-term contract with Man Utd.

The defender who was born in 1993 has long been a transfer target of Manchester United. This summer, the Old Trafford club boss plans to spend £ 70m to recruit Maguire. However, after many price falls, the amount of Manchester football spent on setting up a new transfer record.

After several days of negotiations, the Manchester Red Shirt team was forced into the country, accepting the partner's request because the Premier League transfer was only a few days away.

In the next few days, "Red Devil" can complete the last signature on the summer market, Paulo Dybala. The Argentine striker will dock at Old Trafford from Juventus, while Romelu Lukaku leaves in the opposite direction.
