Manchester United 'Finally Agree' To Sensational £80m Deal For Harry Maguire

Manchester United 'Finally Agree' To Sensational £80m Deal For Harry Maguire

Manchester United have reportedly beaten rivals Manchester City in the race to sign Harry Maguire as they have 'finally agreed' to a whopping £80m deal.

According to Bleacher Report's Dean Jones, the Red Devils are ready to splash out a world-record fee for a defender on the Leicester City star, 26.

"United finally agreeing terms on the £80m Maguire deal," he tweeted.

"Mad amount of money to spend on him and [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka this summer but also very necessary."

United launched a £70m offer for the City target, but the Foxes turned down the offer as they held out for £80m.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 46, has been keen to add the English centre-back to his ranks after the Red Devils suffered defensive issues last season.

And Maguire's £80m move would make him the most expensive defender in the world, which would eclipse Liverpool's acquisition of Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in 2018.

The Premier League champions reportedly offered Maguire a £280,000-a-week contract, but United might have finally landed their marquee summer signing.

"We don't have to sell Harry," the ex-Celtic and Liverpool boss told reporters.

"Harry has been absolutely brilliant about this right from the word go. He's a top, top player and a top guy. I think it's important the supporters know that.

"I've been in this situation before with players and it's not always easy but Harry has been absolutely superb. We've had a chat about it, obviously.

"He's happy and I tip my hat to him for the way he's dealt with all this because it can be unsettling.

"I'm relaxed about it all. We understand the situation from all points of view because United and City are big clubs.

"But unless they meet our valuation he won't be sold and it's as simple as that."
