Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has all but completed his move to fellow Premier League giants Manchester United in a deal reported to be around £80m.

Harry Maguire will have to undergo his medical at the Theatre of Dreams before the transfer is officially confirmed.

Earlier on Friday, Manchester United and Leicester City agreed to a deal for Harry Maguire after weeks of negotiations between the two clubs.

Maguire will be the most expensive defender in the history of world football once he completes his transfer to Manchester United ahead of Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk who’s the current recipient.

Van Dijk became the most expensive defender after Liverpool paid £75m to secure his transfer from fellow Premier League outfit Southampton.

Since his transfer, Van Dijk has been one of the best players in the Liverpool team since his transfer to the club in January 2018.

He was a key player for Liverpool in their Champions League title triumph from last season.

Manchester United fans would be hoping that new signing Harry Maguire could have the same impact on their team.

According to the Daily Mail, Maguire will earn £150,000 on a weekly basis.

The 26-year-old will sign a five-year deal at the club with the option of a sixth year.
