Man Utd agree £80m transfer for Harry Maguire, medical scheduled for tomorrow

The Leicester defender informed the club in the past few days that he was unhappy that they could potentially price him out of a move.

That has resulted in instant action from the Foxes who now look to have granted his wishes of an exit.

The Sun claim that an agreement between the two clubs has now been reached.

Manchester Untied have agreed to pay £60million up front with £20m in add-ons.

He is expected to arrive in Manchester tomorrow for a medical.

Leicester were holding out for £90m after United’s opening offer of £70m was rejected early last week.

But after realising they were fighting a losing battle to keep hold of the England international, they are now prepared to start planning for life without him.

Lewis Dunk and James Tarkowski have both been eyed as potential replacements.

Maguire had initially favoured a move to Manchester City due to the pull of Champions League football and working with Pep Guardioa.

Last season’s Premier League champions appeared to cool their interest after United tabled their first offer.

Ed Woodward will be delighted that Leicester have finally decided to cave in after playing hardball during negotiations.

The United chief was not prepared to reach their £90m valuation and therefore reliant that they reduced their asking price.

Jose Mourinho first made an approach to sign Maguire on the back of last year’s World Cup, where the 26-year-old was an England hero.

Woodward was not prepared to pay up for the centre-back amid fears his price had been inflated on the basis of one good international tournament.

Issa Diop, Kalidou Koulibaly and Toby Alderweireld have all been linked with moves to Old Trafford, while 12 months ago it was Diego Godin, Milan Skriniar and Jerome Boateng.

Maguire is currently with Leicester in Evian, beginning preparations under Brendan Rodgers for the start of the new Premier League season.

Meanwhile United are 13,912 kilometres away in Perth where they will play against Leeds United on Wednesday.
