EPL 2019 transfer news: Man United, Leicester City agree on Maguire fee

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.

Maguire is reportedly set for a medical on Monday.

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.
