United now have a central defender they were looking for to give their roster a complete look. Maguire will enter straight into the playing XI after Eric Bailey suffered a knee injury on the China Tour.

The deal is the United’s third of the season and doubled their expenditure this season. They previously bought Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace at £45m and Daniel James at £18m.
