Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has landed in Manchester for his medicals at three-time European champions Manchester United ahead of his world-record transfer to the club.

According to the UK Mirror, Maguire is at Manchester United for his medicals as his transfer edges closer to his dream move to Old Trafford.

His transfer is expected to be confirmed at the start of the new week after Leicester City and Manchester United agreed on a deal for him.

Leicester City and Manchester United reached an agreement of £80m on Friday after weeks of negotiation.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had earlier requested for a quality centre back signing from Chief Executive Editor Woodward and the Norwegian tactician has finally gotten his man.

Manchester United conceded 54 goals during last season’s Premier League campaign and that record would need to be better if they want to hit their minimum target this season which is to get back into the Champions League.

The Red Devils had one of the worst defensive records from the last campaign.

Harry Maguire will become the most expensive defender when his transfer to Manchester United is completed in the coming days.

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk is the current recipient following his £75m move from Southampton last year.
