Manchester United's Nigerian Fans React To Imminent Arrival Of Costliest Defender In The WorldPublished: August 02, 2019
Manchester United are close to announce the signing of Harry Maguire having reached an agreement with Leicester City, according to the Telegraph UK.
The England World Cup star has been left out of Leicester City's squad to face Atalanta on Friday night ahead of his imminent move to the Old Trafford outfit.
Maguire will cost an initial fee of £85 million pounds, which would make him the most expensive defender in history, surpassing Matthijs de Ligt, who moved from Ajax to Juventus for £77 million

@Ajibade: " No more cheap goals, welcome #Maguire".
@tonye: "I'm happy with the Glazers for the first time".
@gbenga: " welcome Maguire, @lcfc should target Balogun as replacement".
@chinaza: "from Wan-bisaka to Harry Maguire, United defence is going to be hard next season".
@soji: " thanks to the Glazers, couldn't see this coming".
@chinedu_amanda: "United for the trophy, massive addition".
@sunday_wale: " Solskjaer has no more excuses to concede easy goals again, Maguire is set to join us".
@dayo : "great news, what a time and be alive".
@tunero: "huge but deserving price tag, welcome to Old Trafford".
