Solskjaer: Harry is one of the best centre-backs in the game today.

"Harry is one of the best centre-backs in the game today and I am delighted we have secured his signature," Solskjaer said as quoted.

"He is a great reader of the game and has a strong presence on the pitch, with the ability to remain calm under pressure - coupled with his composure on the ball and a huge presence in both boxes - I can see he will fit well into this group both on and off the pitch.

"He has a great personality and is a fantastic addition to the club. I would like to welcome Harry to Manchester United and we are looking forward to working with him as we prepare for the new season."

The England international is now the most expensive defender of all time after signing a bumper six-year contract with the option for a further year.
