Manchester United have agreed a world record £80million fee with Leicester City for Harry Maguire.

According to The Sun, United will pay £60m up front and a further £20m in add-ons which will render the 26-year-old the most expensive centre-half in world football, eclipsing the £75m Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk back in January 2018.
