Harry Maguire Is Already Trolling Liverpool On His First Day As A Manchester United Player
Manchester United completed the signing of Harry Maguire on Monday afternoon for a reported £80 million, and it didn't take long for fans to warm to the England international.
The 26-year-old, who has penned a six-year contract with an option to extend for a further year, revealed his delight at the record breaking move.
"I am delighted to have signed for this great club." he told the club's official website.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Leicester and would like to thank everyone at the club, and the fans, for their fantastic support over the past two seasons."
"However, when Manchester United come knocking on your door, it is an incredible opportunity.
"From my conversations with the manager, I am excited about the vision and plans he has for the team. It's clear to see that Ole is building a team to win trophies.
"I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started."
Maguire also took to Twitter shortly after he was announced as a Manchester United player, and people noticed his interesting choice of picture.
Massive thank you to @lcfc for your brilliant support and amazing memories. We've been through many highs and some real lows but we stuck together. I wish you all the best in the future and I'm sure with a great owner you will keep rising as a club. :blue_heart: #TheBoss #ThankYou pic.twitter.com/1bALmvycOd

Back in January of last season, Liverpool were leading the Premier League title race by four points following a festive period which saw Manchester City fall to defeats against Crystal Palace, Leicester and Newcastle.
Jurgen Klopp's side went into the game against the Foxes confidently and took the lead through Sadio Mane.
But that man Maguire stepped up to coolly slot past Alisson and earn his side a 1-1 draw, halting Liverpool's momentum and dropping two points.

In terms of the transfer, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer couldn't be happier with his latest capture.
"Harry is one of the best centre-backs in the game today and I am delighted we have secured his signature." he said.
"He is a great reader of the game and has a strong presence on the pitch with the ability to remain calm under pressure - coupled with his composure on the ball and a huge presence in both boxes - I can see he will fit well into this group both on and off the pitch.
"He has a great personality and is a fantastic addition to the club. I would like to welcome Harry to Manchester United and we are looking forward to working with him as we prepare for the new season."
Do you think Maguire will succeed at Old Trafford in the coming months?
