Manchester United have agreed a record £80m deal with Leicester City to sign Harry Maguire this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils have agreed a world-record fee for a defender with the Foxes to complete a deal to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils have long been linked with a move to sign Maguire this summer and it now seems that a deal is edging closer.

According to the same story, Maguire was due for a medical this week with the Red Devils to finalize his move to Old Trafford.

The same story says that Manchester United are expected to pay Leicester City a £60m fee up front, with a further £20m coming in add-ons.

The move, should it go through, would make Maguire the most expensive defender in history, eclipsing the £75m Liverpool FC paid to sign Virgil van Dijk last year.

Maguire is poised to become Manchester United’s third signing of the summer transfer window, with the Red Devils having already snapped up Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
