Premier League 2019/20
Manchester United and Leicester City have reportedly agreed on an £80million fee for centre-back Harry Maguire.
The England international is set to become the most expensive defender in history, surpassing the £75million Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk in 2018.
The Sun reports that Maguire will fly to Manchester on Monday for his medical. It is understood the deal includes an initial £60million with an extra £20million available in add-ons.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope the club can complete the signing of the centre-back, with the Red Devils’ defence one of their major Achilles Heels in the 2018/19 season.
Man United are currently on a pre-season tour in Australia. They defeated Perth Glory 2-0 in a friendly over the weekend, and will face Leeds United in a friendly in Perth on Wednesday.
