SunSport understand that United will pay Leicester £60m for Maguire, 26, with an extra £20m available in add-ons.

And that will see him become the world’s most expensive defender, topping the £75m Liverpool forked out on Virgil van Dijk, 28, in 2018.

The Foxes have already found a replacement for their leader with Lewis Dunk, 27, set to join from Brighton in a £45m swoop.

United have beaten their bitter rivals Manchester City to the centre-back’s signature.

Both the Premier League champions and the Red Devils have seen their £70m bids rejected by Leicester.

But after Old Trafford chiefs upped their offer, Leicester eventually sanctioned the deal.

That comes just a few days after Maguire angrily accused Leicester of pricing him out of his mega move.

Jose Mourinho had been desperate to sign the centre-back last summer after the former Hull man’s performances for England at the World Cup.

Leicester landed the Sheffield man for £17m in 2017 and will make a healthy £43m profit straight away.
