He's viewed as one of the very best defenders in England with BBC pundit Jermaine Jenas paying him a huge compliment as he compared him to Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt, who remains subject to intense transfer speculation.
"He [de Ligt] is a top player," he said.
"He is clearly a player with a bright future ahead of him and is only nineteen years old. But I think Harry Maguire is a better player right now.
"If I were in charge of Manchester City, I would take Maguire over de Ligt.
"I don't see de Ligt doing anything Maguire can't do. The only difference is the age."
Maguire isn't City's only high-profile summer transfer. Pep Guardiola is also set to snap up Atletico Madrid's Rodri for £62 million.
