The 26-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the transfer window, appears to have finally got his wish of joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

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

Manchester City also reportedly offered Maguire a £280,000-a-week contract, but again that offer didn't materialise.
