Peter Schmeichel has claimed that Harry Maguire is "made for Manchester United", with the legendary goalkeeper paying tribute to the England international following his big-money move to Old Trafford.

Maguire completed a switch to United in the latter stages of the summer transfer window, with the Red Devils finally agreeing a deal with Leicester City following weeks of speculation.

The 26-year-old impressed on his debut against Chelsea last weekend, and Schmeichel, who made close to 400 appearances for the English giants between 1991 and 1999, has claimed that he knew early on that the former Sheffield United youngster was destined for the top.

"I have to say when I saw Harry the first time for Leicester when he played his first game he intrigued me straight away," Schmeichel told The Mirror. "A couple of games in I am thinking, 'This guy is made for Manchester United '. He is not fazed about anything.

"Everyone will agree in the World Cup he played every game, just got on with it and was arguably was one of the best players in the English team.

"He brings all that and an incredible ability to bring the ball forward. It is something you either have or don't have and very few centre halves have that ability. For some people he looks a bit awkward but I have got used to him and know exactly what he will do and think he will do very well.

"He is going to bring stability in defence. He is a very calm, cool customer. There is nothing erratic about him. You had all the big clubs looking at him and I felt he would go all summer because of the money involved."

Maguire, who has been capped on 20 occasions by England, made 76 appearances for Leicester during his two seasons at the King Power Stadium.
