Premier League giants Manchester United have made a huge coup in the transfer window after they signed English centre back Harry Maguire from Leicester City.
According to media outlet Various, the World-record transfer was completed on Friday morning.
Harry Maguire has always been a top priority for Manchester United this summer despite the resistance from fellow Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Manchester United have finally made a breakthrough in their quest to sign him in a deal reported to be around £85m.

The transfer is a record for a defender surpassing the previous record held by Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk whom the Reds paid £75m to secure his signing at the beginning of last year.
Van Dijk joined Liverpool from fellow English top flight club Southampton in January 2018 and he has been a revelation.
The Dutchman has performed beyond expectations since his transfer to Anfield.
He was a key player for Liverpool as they reached the Champions League final in 2018 before they were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid.
Van Dijk also played a major role as Liverpool went one better by winning the Champions League title this summer via a 2-0 win over Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their final clash in Madrid.
