Manchester United’s relentless pursuit of Harry Maguire may finally conclude as reports appear to confirm that Leicester City accepted a bid of £80 million for their star defender, making him the world’s most expensive defender eclipsing the fee Liverpool paid for Virgil van Dijk (£75 million).

For Liverpool, Virgil van Dijk has been excellent since his transfer. Since his arrival, Liverpool have reached the finals of Champions League twice (winning it once) and finished the runners-up in a closely fought Premier League. The Dutchman is also touted to win the prestigious Ballon D’Or. If he does, he will be the first defender since Fabio Cannavaro (who won it in 2006) to win the esteemed award.
