Deal agreed, Manchester United complete deal for third summer signing

Finally, Manchester United have completed the signing of England international, Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

The Red Devils have been in the race to sign the centre-back since the commencement of the summer transfer window but were held down by the Foxes price tag.

Leicester City were demanding over £80 million as the transfer fee while Man Utd were trying to beat down the price.

However, The Guardian reports that the Red Devils have finally agreed to Leicester City’s demand for Maguire.

It is reported that the Red Devils will splash a total of £90 million, which included add-ons for the English defender.

Signing Maguire is big boost for Man Utd considering the fact that their defence is in poor form, however, they could have signed him earlier to get him the opportunity to play with the rest of the team during the preseason tour.

Maguire is also coming with a wealth of experience in the Premier League and would surely perform unlike Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailey who had plied their trade outside England before moving to Old Trafford and thus unable to meet up with the rigorous demands of the Premier League.

Man United are expected to sign a midfielder this summer to fill the void left by Ander Herrera.
