The transfer of Harry Maguire is a step closer to fruition after the player was pictured leaving Manchester United Carrington training ground in Sunday.

Maguire is expected to complete a sensational move to Old Trafford after a transfer fee of £80 million was agreed with Leicester.

The 26-year-old had been a target for the Red Devils and will become the most expensive defender in the world with this transfer. His arrival would be expected to improve the defence of Manchester United which has been inconsistent in the past few seasons.

​United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about his impending arrival earlier in the week and suggested that Maguire could play against Chelsea next weekend.

I’ve got a good idea of my starting line-up for Chelsea and Harry has played a few games over the summer so he should be ready. We’ll just have to assess him if and when.”

Maguire is renowned for his defensive qualities, which includes his ability to play out from the back and his aerial prowess. Only time will tell if he can have similar impact like Liverpool’s ace Virgil Van Dirk.
