Manchester United have signed England centre-back Harry Maguire from Premier League rivals Leicester City for £80m – a world record fee for a defender.
The 26-year-old has agreed a six-year contract at Old Trafford, with the option of a further year.
The fee for Maguire eclipses the £75m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk in January 2018.
“When Manchester United come knocking on your door, it is an incredible opportunity,” said Maguire.
Maguire is the second most expensive signing in English top-flight history after new team-mate Paul Pogba (£89m), and becomes the second most expensive British player after Wales winger Gareth Bale, who joined Real Madrid from Tottenham for £85m in 2013.
