What the papers say

The Sun, in what it bills as an exclusive, says Manchester United have agreed a world-record £80million fee to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester. The defender is set to have a medical on Monday, the paper reports.

Now having some spare cash to splash, Leicester are set to replace Maguire with Brighton’s England international Lewis Dunk, having agreed a £45million deal for the 27-year-old, The Sun adds.
