Having spent all summer being linked with us, Harry Maguire has today become a Manchester United player.

Maguire becomes the most expensive defender in football after leaving Leicester for £80m.

Maguire, who is from a family of Reds, has thanked his former club in an interview with the official site, but admitted that a move to United was something he couldn’t turn down.

I am delighted to have signed for this great club. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Leicester and would like to thank everyone at the club, and the fans, for their fantastic support over the past two seasons. However, when Manchester United come knocking on your door, it is an incredible opportunity.

From my conversations with the manager, I am excited about the vision and plans he has for the team. It’s clear to see that Ole is building a team to win trophies. I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started.
