Brendan Rodgers: Maguire is closing in on a move to Man United.

An agreement has been reached between Man Utd and the Foxes for Maguire following negotiations.


Brendan Rodgers says Leicester City and Manchester United have agreed a deal for the transfer of England international Harry Maguire.


Since the close-season, the 26-year-old was linked with both United and Man City, but the Premier League champions ruled themselves out of the race to secure his signature a while ago.


Maguire will become the world's most expensive defender as the reported fee of £80million has been agreed by both the Red Devils and the Foxes.


Speaking after Leicester's 2-1 friendly win over Atalanta, Rodgers told Sky Sports: "Until it goes through - there's obviously been communications between the clubs - but there's still a bit to go in terms of medical and personal terms.


"It is what it is. He's a special player, not one we want to leave, but we'll see over the course of the weekend if there's anything more. At this point the clubs have agreed [a fee]."


The deal is subject to a medical and would eclipse the current world-record £75m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk.
