Maguire signs for Manchester United


Manchester United have completed their third signing of the summer transfer window with defender Harry Maguire joining them from Leicester City.

The England international has penned a six-year deal with the Red Devils after they agreed on a world-record £80m fee for a central defender.

“I am delighted to have signed for this great club. I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started,” he told the club’s official website.

United had been desperate to pursue Maguire from the beginning of July, but they could not strike a deal with the Foxes, who were reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag.

Ultimately, the Mancunian giants had to bow to the demands of Brendan Rodgers‘ side and it remains to be seen whether the 26-year-old can hit the ground running from the off.

Aside from Maguire, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side have landed the services of winger Daniel James and right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively this summer.

Manchester United are scheduled to host Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League opener on Sunday and Maguire could make his debut alongside Victor Lindelof at the heart of the defence.

Real Madrid to push for Paul Pogba signing until transfer deadline

Pogba could yet make Real Madrid move this summer


Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to step up their efforts to sign midfielder Paul Pogba ahead of the Premier League transfer deadline next week.

The La Liga giants are permitted to make signings until September 2 but they are aware that the Red Devils won’t consider any offers for Pogba once the transfer window closes in England.

According to AS, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane continues to remain desperate to land the former Juventus man and the club could be prepared to match United’s £137.2m price tag for the midfielder.

However, the 13-time European champions may need to act at the earliest possibility, considering they need to find a replacement first before sanctioning Pogba’s sale.

Both Bruno Fernandes and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have been linked with a move to Old Trafford but the former seems the most likely to make the switch to the Mancunian giants before the August 8 deadline.

Manchester United are also looking into a move to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City but they are yet to find an agreement with the Foxes wanting around £90m for the centre-back.
