Manchester United have agreed a fee of £85million with Leicester City to sign Harry Maguire, making him the world’s most expensive defender.
The fee, which includes add-ons, was finally reached following weeks of negotiations between both clubs.
Manchester United will pay £80m upfront and a further £5m in add-ons.
The 26-year-old had already pulled out of Leicester’s final pre-season friendly against Atalanta on Friday. He is expected to undergo his medical on Saturday, August 3, 2019.
