Manchester United agree to record fee for defender Harry Maguire
The central defender - coveted by United since he starred as England reached the World Cup semi-finals
London: Harry Maguire is set to become the world’s most expensive defender after Manchester United agreed to pay Leicester City £80 million (R675 cr) according to media reports yesterday.
The central defender — coveted by United since he starred as England reached the World Cup semi-finals — is to undergo a medical at United over the weekend, according to Sky Sports and the BBC.
Maguire’s fee out-strips Dutch international Matthijs van Ligt who in July moved to Juventus from Ajax for a combined fee of 75 million euros ($84.2 million) plus 10.5 million euros of add-ons.
