Harry Maguire has completed his £80million move to Manchester United.

The England international put pen to paper on a huge six-year deal with the option for a further 12 months.

The deal is worth up to £200,000 a week and the 26-year-old revealed he is delighted to be joining the Red Devils.

In a statement on Monday, Manchester United said “Harry signs on a six-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

The 26-year-old England international joined Leicester in 2017 and has made 76 appearances, scoring five goals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Harry is one of the best centre-backs in the game today and I am delighted we have secured his signature. He is a great reader of the game and has a strong presence on the pitch, with the ability to remain calm under pressure – coupled with his composure on the ball and a huge presence in both boxes – I can see he will fit well into this group both on and off the pitch.

”He has a great personality and is a fantastic addition to the club.

“I would like to welcome Harry to Manchester United and we are looking forward to working with him as we prepare for the new season.”

United begin the new Premier League season against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
