HARRY MAGUIRE is poised to complete an £80million switch from Leicester to Manchester United, as exclusively revealed by SunSport.
The world-record-transfer for a defender sees United add their second English star at the back after Aaron Wan-Bissaka joined from Crystal Palace in a £50m move.
United’s defence came under heavy criticism last season as they conceded the second most goals of all the teams in the top half of the Premier League.
And with the two new Englishman on board the question is how will the Red Devils line up for their Prem opener against Chelsea on August 11.
Wan-Bissaka was left out United’s starting lineup for their pre-season opener against Perth Glory but replaced Diego Dalot at half-time and played well in the second-half.
Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Ashley Young made up the remainder of the starting back four in Australia but that is unlikely to reflect their starting back-line now Maguire has signed.
After SunSport broke the news of Maguire’s move, we looked into how the Red Devils might line up with the Englishman on their books.

If United have a clean bill of health come August 11 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to start both of his new signings alongside Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw.
But Shaw limped out of United’s 2-0 victory against the Glory with a suspected hamstring injury so the Norwegian boss may have to look elsewhere.
Despite the positive Maguire news, United continue to scour the planet in a bid to get more transfers over the line.
