Harry Maguire Manchester United shirt number

Manchester United have reached a record breaking deal to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City but what Jersey number will he be given?

Maguire was a subject of interest from Manchester United and their neighbours Manchester City. However, the aforementioned Champions withdrew interest in him following his bogus price tag, leaving the Red Devils as clear favourites to sign him.

After so many rounds of protracted talks, United budged to paying his £80million valuation, with  £60million to be paid as up front, while £20million  in add-ons, per the Sun.

The 26-year-old is due for his Man United medical later today and if all goes well, a confirmation for the deal will be made within this week.

United had made Aaron Wan-Bissaka their most expensive defender signing after Rio Ferdinand. Nonetheless, Maguire is set to become the most expensive centre-back in the world. His fee eclipses Virgil Van Dijk’s, who joined Liverpool in a £75m deal.

Maguire is expected to slot into the first team of United as the marquee signing of the summer.

He currently dons the squad number 15 at Leicester City but that isn’t available at Manchester United.

The Red Devils handed number 27 shirt to Harry Maguire of though Marcos Rojo had relinquished the number 5 shirt.

Given that the number 5 shirt, Maguire looks destined to wear the shirt at United even though 19, 21, 26, 27, 28, 30, 32 33, 34 35 or 37 are available as well.

He will likely pair with Victor Lindelof at the heart of United’s backline.
