Manchester United say they are aware of reports Harry Maguire was arrested during a post-season holiday in Mykonos.

The 27-year-old was allegedly detained after an altercation with a number of other holiday-goers and police officers outside a bar in the early hours of Friday morning.

United have said they have made contact with their skipper, who is ‘fully co-operating with authorities’.

“The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night,” read a United tatement.

“Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities.

“At this time we will be making no further comment.”

The 27-year-old centre-back is currently on holiday on the Greek island with partner Fern Hawkins, with United players taking a period of time off after their Europa League exertions earlier this month, before returning for pre-season.

But, according to reports in the local media, Maguire’s post-season break took a turn for the worse on Thursday night when he got involved in a row with a group of other British tourists.

The England international was said to have been spotted by police during an altercation outside a bar, and then resisted arrest when officers stepped in.

It is claimed he was then led away from the scene in handcuffs, with the other Brits also taken to a local police station.

Hours before, a video was posted in the local Greek media of Maguire hanging out at a bar with friends, and posing for a selfie with a fan.

However, it’s unclear if this was the same bar the alleged incident took place in, or even if it was taken from the same evening.

Maguire became the world’s most expensive defender when he left Leicester to join Manchester United last summer in an £80million deal, becoming the club’s captain the following January following Ashley Young’s departure to Inter Milan.

He played every single minute of the Red Devils’ Premier League campaign as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sneaked into the top-four thanks to their brilliant end to the season.

Maguire actually played more minutes than any other footballer in the world during an exhausting 2019/20 season – making 55 appearances and playing 5,509 minutes of football.
