Harry Maguire's journey to becoming the world's most expensive defender

Five years ago, the man they call Slabhead was signed by Hull City for £2.5m.

Harry Maguire had arrived in the Premier League even if he was being sent from Sheffield United with some begrudging remarks over his ability to cut it at that top level.

In 2017, Leicester invested £12m in the centre half for a transfer fee that would potentially rise to £17m with add-ons.

An impressive World Cup later, interest from Jose Mourinho and a desperately late play from a more desperate Manchester United and the 26-year-old becomes the most expensive defender of all time.

No defender in the world, ever, has cost as much as Harry Maguire has cost United and this is his journey.
