United will pay Leicester £60m for Maguire with an extra £20m available in add-ons.

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

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

But after Old Trafford chiefs upped their offer, the Foxes 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 land Maguire 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.

He became a father back in April after wife Fern gave birth to a daughter, nine months after England’s exploits at the World Cup.
