Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows there are no guarantees over Harry Maguire's form after a tumultuous close-season for the Manchester United captain.

Maguire was arrested after an incident with police while on holiday on the Greek island of Mykonos last month.

At a trial on the neighbouring island of Syros, the 27-year-old was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and attempted bribery.

He was handed a suspended prison sentence but maintains his innocence and Maguire's pending appeal nullifies the conviction under Greek law.

"The process will keep on going," Solskjaer said ahead of United's Premier League opener at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"Knowing Harry, he's a very strong character so hopefully he can put that apart but naturally, as a human being, it will be in the back of your mind what's happened this summer, and apart from that you have just got to see how it develops with Harry.

"Personally, I think he will be able to focus on his football but then who am I to … you can't predict how people will react, but so far he's trained well, he's been focused.

"Hopefully that process will just go on and, of course, we know it's something that will go on in the legal department over there."

Solskjaer announced earlier this month that Maguire would remain his captain after England boss Gareth Southgate removed him from the national squad to face Iceland and Denmark in the wake of his conviction.

Maguire joined United for £80million from Leicester City last year, a world-record fee for a defender, and went on to make 55 appearances in all competitions in 2019-20, scoring three goals.

Harry Maguire will remain Manchester United captain for the coming season despite his legal case in Greece, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.

Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts at bribery at a misdemeanours court in Syros last month.

The 27-year-old, who denied all charges against him, was tried alongside two other defendants after an alleged incident involving police while he was on holiday on the nearby island of Mykonos.

Maguire's legal representatives lodged an appeal, meaning the court's initial verdict was nullified and a full retrial will now take place at a more senior court.

The England international, who was dropped from Gareth Southgate's Nations League squad after the guilty verdict, told the BBC he feared for his life during an apparent altercation with plain-clothed officers, saying: "I thought there was no chance these were police."

"The retrial will give us more time to prepare, gather the evidence, allow witnesses into the court. I'm really confident that the truth will be told and come out," he said.

Speaking ahead of United's pre-season friendly with Aston Villa on Saturday, Solskjaer confirmed he is standing by his skipper.

"Of course, Harry, as you said, had a difficult summer," the United manager told MUTV. "He didn't have a long break. His break was different to others as we gave him a few more days and, after, he's come back and looked fine.

"He's handled it really well and, of course, I'll be here to support him. He is going to be our captain. We'll just leave Harry and his people and the process to run.

"For me, he is a top, an absolute top human being and has always been a positive guy with the right values. So I really hope we can see Harry performing at his best."

The game with Villa will be United's first since they signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax for a fee that could rise to £39.1million (€44m) - their only transfer of the window to date.

Solskjaer has been delighted with the midfielder's first few days of training and made it clear United are still scouring the market for potential deals, although the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has made spending difficult for most clubs.

"He's been training only a couple of days but he's a bright, bubbly character," Solskjaer said. "He wants to learn and the first few signs are positive, not that I doubted that one because I've followed him for a few years, of course.

"He's been a talented youngster and now we felt he was ready to come here. He felt it was the best place to come so, for us, it's a good transfer.

"It's been a strange time and a strange world. Financially, I'm sure loads of clubs have suffered. It looks like it as there has not been a lot of activity in the window.

"We're always looking to improve the squad, scouting players and, if something fits, both the financial bit and the football bit, of course we'll try to make some business. But we can't know how the markets and how other clubs have been affected either."

Kai Havertz has become Chelsea's record signing after leaving Bayer Leverkusen in a reported initial £72million (€80m) transfer.

That deal also means the Germany international ranks among the most expensive deals in Premier League history.

We take a look at the top five signings made by England's top-flight clubs as Havertz aims to hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge.
 

NICOLAS PEPE – Lille to Arsenal (£72m)

Tying Havertz as the fifth-most expensive signing by an English club, Pepe has not quite yet made the impact Arsenal might have hoped for when splashing out a huge fee at the start of last season.

Pepe scored 22 times for Lille in his final Ligue 1 campaign but managed only a comparatively measly five goals and six assists in the Premier League last term. The winger has competition from academy graduate Bukayo Saka – a PFA Young Player of the Year nominee – for his place now, too.

ROMELU LUKAKU – Everton to Manchester United (£75m)

It would be harsh to call Lukaku a flop, but Chelsea will want more from Havertz than the former Blue provided at United, who fought off interest from Stamford Bridge to secure his signature at the end of a 25-goal 2016-17 campaign.

Although Lukaku started reasonably well at Old Trafford, scoring 15 times in the league by the end of March in his first season, the Belgium international never really hit the heights expected of a United centre-forward and departed last year for Inter, where he has proven hugely successful.

VIRGIL VAN DIJK – Southampton to Liverpool (£75m)

Such a fee for a defender seemed extortionate in January 2018, but Van Dijk has arguably proved the best buy on this list. Already a standout performer for Southampton, the Dutch centre-back has taken a huge leap in Liverpool red.

Van Dijk was influential in his new club's run to the Champions League final in 2017-18 and then helped them go one better and lift the trophy the following year. A Premier League title finally followed last term, with Liverpool's huge outlay rewarded with defensive displays of remarkable consistency.

HARRY MAGUIRE – Leicester City to Manchester United (£80m)

United certainly appeared to pay attention to Van Dijk's early success at Liverpool as they followed suit with a massive move for a centre-back with Premier League experience. Maguire was signed just a year ago but is already Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's captain.

That is not to say Maguire has fully justified his fee just yet, though. Mistakes crept into the defender's play late in the season, while there may be extra pressure placed on the England man in the coming campaign after an off-season incident in Greece.

PAUL POGBA – Juventus to Manchester United (£89m)

United could yet challenge this fee with a move for Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, but England's most expensive buy as it stands is a player the Red Devils previously let go for free. Pogba returned to Old Trafford in 2016 having developed into a world-class midfielder in Serie A.

Pogba has been the subject of criticism and transfer speculation almost since he arrived back at United, yet he remains a key performer and has scored precious goals in the Europa League final and against rivals Manchester City. The Frenchman is now forming an effective partnership with Bruno Fernandes.

Gareth Southgate is eager to get Harry Maguire back in the England picture next month as the defender awaits a retrial.

Manchester United captain Maguire, along with two other defendants, was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery at a misdemeanours court last month following an incident involving police on the Greek island of Mykonos.

The 27-year-old, who has denied all charges against him, was given a suspended prison sentence, though he has appealed against the conviction, which, in accordance with Greek law, has therefore been nullified and a full retrial in a more senior court will now take place.

Maguire was initially named in the England squad for the forthcoming Nations League matches with Iceland and Denmark before being dropped, but Three Lions boss Southgate is hoping to welcome him back at the next opportunity.

With England facing Wales, Belgium and the return clash with Denmark in October, the 27-year-old former Leicester City star may not have to wait long.

"We have been in touch right the way through the last two and a half weeks. It's clearly been a really difficult period for him," said Southgate.

"The last few days have been important for him to be able to relax, get away from all the attention and get a rest, mentally get a rest.

"Of course he had a short break anyway but ... the events that happened in Greece really dominated that, so I think he needed that switch-off and he'll be able to go back to his club.

"Absolutely we would be looking to involve him in October."

Speaking last week to the BBC about the incident, Maguire said he feared for his life after claiming he and his friends came under attack from plain-clothed police.

"My initial thought was I thought we were getting kidnapped. We got down on our knees, we put our hands in the air," he said.

"They just started hitting us, they were hitting our legs, saying, 'My career's over. No more football. You won't play again'.

"At this point I thought there was no chance these were police. I don't know who they are, so I tried to run away. I was in that much of a panic, fear, scared for my life – all the way through it."

Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood would relish having Lionel Messi in the Premier League – even if that means facing the six-time Ballon d'Or winner in Manchester City colours.

City are viewed as the frontrunners for Messi's signature after the player handed in a transfer request at Barcelona last week, although the huge finances required to secure his services represent significant obstacles to overcome.

Greenwood, who is in line for his first senior England action in the forthcoming Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark, is excited by the prospect, even if it would be so beneficial to United's crosstown rivals.

"Obviously it'd be amazing to come up against him. All young footballers know about Messi," the 18-year-old told a video news conference from England's St George's Park base.

"To be on the same pitch playing against him would be another dream come true - not just for me, for everyone.

"Having someone that high profile coming to the Premier League would be a big thing."

United are thought to be on the brink of their own transfer coup, bringing in Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek for a fee in the region of £40million.

"I've seen some stuff," Greenwood said. "He does look like a good, promising player."

Greenwood's club captain Harry Maguire is absent from England duty after he was arrested while on holiday in Greece and convicted of aggravated assault, before securing a retrial after the verdict was quashed.

"It's really not for me to say, but Harry's a good lad and I'm looking forward to seeing him back at the club after this international break." he said.

In the meantime, Greenwood will vie for a place in Gareth Southgate's forward line and he is unfazed by competing with the likes of skipper Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and prospective United target Jadon Sancho.

"I feel ready to compete with anyone," he added. "Like in the league, just going out there with a smile on your face and playing football is what it's all about.

"It's good that everyone is pushing for places. It makes the training and the games better.

"I'm looking forward to playing with Harry Kane. When I was in the youth team I was watching him in the Premier League. He is one of my team-mates and a role model as well."

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has claimed he was "scared for his life" during his arrest in Greece last week.

England defender Maguire, along with two other defendants, was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery at a misdemeanours court in Syros on Tuesday following an incident involving police on the island of Mykonos.

The 27-year-old, who has denied all charges against him, was given a suspended prison sentence, though he will be appealing the conviction, which, in accordance with Greek law, has therefore been nullified and a full retrial in a more senior court will now take place.

On Thursday, Maguire spoke publicly for the first time since his arrest in an interview to BBC News.

He reaffirmed his innocence and discussed his arrest, claiming plain-clothed police officers attacked him and his group.

"My initial thought was I thought we were getting kidnapped. We got down on our knees, we put our hands in the air," Maguire said.

"They just started hitting us, they were hitting our legs, saying, 'My career's over. No more football. You won't play again'.

"At this point I thought there was no chance these were police. I don't know who they are, so I tried to run away. I was in that much of a panic, fear, scared for my life - all the way through it."

Yoannis Paradissis, a lawyer who assisted the prosecution in the case, had insisted the police officers involved had acted lawfully when he spoke after the initial trial finished on Tuesday.

"The policemen I represent were just doing their job according to the procedures in place," he told Sky News.

"The defence team was accusing the policemen of police brutality and that they weren't doing their jobs correctly. That is why they tried to justify the assault that was done to the policemen.

"We are totally appalled by that. We say that it is an unsportsmanlike conduct and they would not give even a single apology. If they had said they were very sorry I do not think the matter would have arrived here."

Maguire reiterated that he felt no need to apologise for his actions.

"It was horrible. It's not something I ever want to do again. I don't wish it on anybody. It's the first time I've ever been inside a prison," said Maguire, who spent two nights in custody.

"I don't feel like I owe an apology to anybody. An apology's something when you've done something wrong.

"I regret being in the situation. Obviously the situation's made it difficult. I play for one of the biggest clubs in the world so I regret putting the fans and the club through this."

Shortly after the initial trial finished, Maguire was dropped from the England squad for the Nations League fixtures against Iceland and Denmark next month.

Asked by BBC News if he should stay on as United's captain, the centre-back replied: "It's a massive privilege to play for the club, never mind to be a captain.

"Obviously, it's not my decision to make. I have great faith in the Greek law.

"The retrial will give us more time to prepare, gather the evidence, allow witnesses into the court. I'm really confident that the truth will be told and come out."

Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has expressed his support for Harry Maguire, who is appealing against a conviction by a Greek court.

Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery at a misdemeanours court in Syros on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old, who denied all charges against him, was tried alongside two other defendants following an alleged incident involving police the week before while he was holidaying on the nearby island of Mykonos.

United confirmed Maguire's legal representatives have lodged an appeal and, as per Greek law, the initial conviction has therefore been nullified and a full retrial "in a more senior court" will now take place.

Maguire, who could reportedly face a long wait for his retrial, was dropped from the England squad following his conviction after initially being called up by Gareth Southgate.

The England manager had told reporters before removing the defender from the squad: "I've spoken with Harry, I have insight into the story which is very different to what's been reported."

Speaking to talkSPORT on Thursday, Rooney said of Maguire: "Knowing Harry the way I know him, it's completely not his character.

"I couldn't get my head around how it went to court, he was found guilty and sentenced all within the space of about two hours… how has that happened?

"Harry's not that type of person at all. He was out there with his girlfriend, his family and friends and their girlfriends, so it's not a group of lads, where sometimes things happen. So, in my opinion, something has gone on that has maybe provoked him.

"It's just out of character, it's not him at all. I just think as a nation, as people, we are too quick to judge.

"Obviously he was found guilty and there's an appeal, so at the minute there's no charges now against his name until the next court date.

"Obviously I've made my own mistakes and I've had my issues with the law, both in England and abroad as well, so I know how difficult that can be. But I just think with Harry, he's not that character at all.

"I've also heard people saying, 'why doesn't he hire a villa and stay in a villa?'

"But why should he? He's a human being!"

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire will face a full retrial after appealing against a conviction by a Greek court.

Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts at bribery at a misdemeanours court in Syros on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old, who denied all charges against him, was tried alongside two other defendants following an incident involving police while he was on holiday on the nearby island of Mykonos.

United have confirmed Maguire's legal representatives have lodged an appeal and, as per Greek law, the initial conviction has therefore been nullified and a full retrial "in a more senior court" will now take place.

The club said in a statement on Wednesday: "An appeal against yesterday's verdict was lodged this morning by Harry's legal team.

"In accordance with the Greek judicial process, the filing of an appeal extinguishes the initial court verdict and nullifies the conviction. The appeal has been accepted and will lead to a full retrial in a more senior court.

"This means that Harry has no criminal record and is once again presumed innocent until proven guilty. Accordingly, he is not subject to any international travel restrictions."

The centre-back is expected to remain United's captain for the start of the Premier League season next month.

Shortly after Tuesday's verdict, United said: "Harry Maguire pleaded not guilty to all of the misdemeanour charges made against him and he continues to strongly assert his innocence. 

"It should be noted that the prosecution confirmed the charges and provided their evidence late on the day before the trial, giving the defence team minimal time to digest them and prepare. A request for the case to be adjourned was subsequently denied. 

"On this basis, along with the substantial body of evidence refuting the charges, Harry Maguire's legal team will now appeal the verdict, to allow a full and fair hearing at a later date."

Maguire, who had been named in the latest England squad prior to his conviction, was dropped by manager Gareth Southgate "in the best interest of all parties" after the guilty verdict was announced.

Speaking before removing Maguire from his squad, Southgate said: "I've spoken with Harry, I have insight into the story which is very different to what's been reported."

Yoannis Paradissis, the lawyer who assisted the prosecution in the case, told Sky News the victims were awaiting an apology, saying: "If they had said they were very sorry I do not think the matter would have arrived here."

Harry Maguire has been withdrawn from the England squad for next month's Nations League matches.

The Manchester United captain was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery at a trial in Greece on Tuesday.

Maguire was tried alongside two other defendants on the island of Syros, following his part in an incident involving police while on holiday in Mykonos.

Maguire, who spent last Thursday and Friday night in custody, denied the charges but was convicted on all counts by a three-member misdemeanours court.

The centre-back maintains his innocence and Manchester United confirmed his legal team would appeal against the verdict after having a request for an adjournment denied.

Prior to the confirmation of the outcome of the trial, Maguire was included in Gareth Southgate's squad for the games against Iceland and Denmark.

The manager said he had no reason to doubt Maguire's account but hinted his involvement was subject to change depending on the outcome of the trial.

In a subsequent statement released through the Football Association, Southgate said: "In light of this evening's developments, I can confirm I have withdrawn Harry Maguire from the England squad for the matches against Iceland and Denmark. 

"As I said earlier today, I reserved the right to review the situation. Having spoken to Manchester United and the player, I have made this decision in the best interests of all parties and with consideration of the impact on our preparations for next week."

Yoannis Paradissis, the lawyer who assisted the prosecution in the case, told Sky News the victims were still awaiting an apology.

"The policemen I represent were just doing their job according to the procedures in place," said Paradissis.

"The defence team was accusing the policemen of police brutality and that they weren't doing their jobs correctly. That is why they tried to justify the assault that was done to the policemen.

"We are totally appalled by that. We say that it is an unsportsmanlike conduct and they would not give even a single apology.

"If they had said they were very sorry I do not think the matter would have arrived here.

"The Maguire brothers and the other accused did not ask [to make] an apology. On top of that, the accused for this kind of thing were brutal and violent to them [the police]."

He added: "I am angry because we have four young policemen that have no reason to say lies against Maguire. They didn't even know him, some of them.

"His defence team was accusing the policemen, that they didn't do their job correctly and this is why he acted how he acted.

"But, of course, this was not believed by the court, and the court – correctly in my opinion – convicted him on all charges.

"And what they are still waiting for is an apology, because they are appalled by his behaviour. He could be here, but he is not.

"In court his defence team did mention that he's a very famous role model. For me, the young policemen who were the victims of all of this, they think his conduct was totally unsportsmanlike. Not like a role model, definitely.

"And I think that to be sportsmanlike, when you do something wrong – which can happen – you say you are sorry and make an apology.

"Today, we have not heard a single apology from his party and this is what angers us more than anything else.

"We are still waiting for an apology. That's all they are waiting for."

A statement released by United read: "Manchester United notes the verdict of the Greek court.

"Harry Maguire pleaded not guilty to all of the misdemeanour charges made against him and he continues to strongly assert his innocence. 

"It should be noted that the prosecution confirmed the charges and provided their evidence late on the day before the trial, giving the defence team minimal time to digest them and prepare. A request for the case to be adjourned was subsequently denied. 

"On this basis, along with the substantial body of evidence refuting the charges, Harry Maguire's legal team will now appeal the verdict, to allow a full and fair hearing at a later date."

Harry Maguire will launch an appeal after being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery at a trial in Greece. 

The Manchester United captain was tried alongside two other defendants on the Island of Syros on Tuesday, following his part in an incident involving police while on holiday in Mykonos.

Maguire, who spent last Thursday and Friday night in custody, denied the charges but was convicted on all counts by a three-member misdemeanours court.

United released a statement confirming Maguire's legal team would appeal, having had a request for an adjournment denied.

"Manchester United notes the verdict of the Greek court," it read.

"Harry Maguire pleaded not guilty to all of the misdemeanour charges made against him and he continues to strongly assert his innocence.

The 27-year-old had earlier been named in England's squad to face Iceland and Denmark in the Nations League next month.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate explained his decision, which came before the verdict, and offered glowing praise of the defender after hearing his version of events.

"It's clearly a decision that is not straightforward and a decision that, in the end, I can only take on the information I have," Southgate said.

"I've spoken with Harry, I have insight to the story which is very different to what's been reported."

Southgate did add, however, that a change in circumstances would force him to review his call.

"In these instances, you can only make decisions based on facts that you're aware of," he said. "Now, clearly, if facts or information change further down the line, I have to review that decision.

"I have a fantastic relationship with the boy. Harry has been an outstanding character for us.

"I have no reason to doubt what he is telling me. It's important he knows that he's got my support at this moment."

Gareth Southgate decided to include Harry Maguire in his England squad after hearing the Manchester United captain's version of the events that led to him standing trial in Greece.

Maguire was a subject of court proceedings on the Greek island of Syros on Tuesday, following his alleged part in an altercation with police while on holiday in Mykonos.

The 27-year-old spent last Thursday and Friday night in custody and denies all charges. He had the chance to speak to Southgate before being selected for next month's Nations League encounters with Iceland and Denmark.

The England manager hailed his first-choice central defender as "an outstanding character" within the national team set-up, and said he had no reason to doubt Maguire's account of last week's incident.

"It's clearly a decision that is not straightforward and a decision that, in the end, I can only take on the information I have," Southgate told a news conference.

"I've spoken with Harry, I have insight to the story which is very different to what's been reported.

There are maiden call-ups for Phil Foden, Mason Greenwood and Kalvin Phillips, while Raheem Sterling also features.

Manchester United captain Maguire was on trial on the Greek island of Syros on Tuesday, following his alleged part in an incident involving police while on holiday in Mykonos.

The 27-year-old spent last Thursday and Friday night in custody and denies all charges.

Maguire has established himself as Southgate's premier centre-back and was a key pillar in the England side that progressed to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, scoring in the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden.

Sterling attended Usain Bolt's 34th birthday party last Friday, after which the eight-time Olympic champion announced he was self-isolating while awaiting the results of a coronavirus test, encouraging all others who had come into contact with him to go into quarantine.

Manchester City midfielder Foden enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2019-20, scoring eight goals and supplying nine assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.

The last of those came in a tireless showing in the false nine role as City beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the Champions League – the latest demonstration of the 20-year-old's versatility.

Greenwood, 18, scored 17 goals in all competitions in a breakout season for Manchester United, matching the record for a Red Devils teenager in a single campaign held by George Best, Brian Kidd and Wayne Rooney.

Midfielder Phillips was a key part of the Leeds United squad that earned promotion from the Championship as league winners under Marcelo Bielsa.

After narrowly missing out on the Premier League Golden Boot to Jamie Vardy, Danny Ings is rewarded for his 22-goal campaign with a chance to earn his second cap, almost five years after his England debut.

England squad: Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley); Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City); Phil Foden (Manchester City), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Harry Winks (Tottenham); Tammy Abraham (Chelsea), Mason Greenwood (Manchester United), Danny Ings (Southampton), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City).

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has pleaded not guilty to charges relating to an alleged altercation with police while on holiday in Mykonos.

Maguire and two other men were arrested on Thursday following an incident with officers on the Greek island.

A police statement on Friday said the 27-year-old was set to be charged with aggravated assault.

Maguire's lawyer Konstantinos Darivas was quoted by the Guardian as saying his client denied the allegations.

After the England international appeared in court in Syros – the administrative centre of the region – on Saturday, United issued their own update on the matter.

"Following the appearance in court today we note the adjournment of the case to allow the legal team to consider the case file," United's statement read.

"Harry has pleaded not guilty to the charges. It would be inappropriate for the player or club to comment further while the legal process takes its course."

When Maguire left court he did not respond to questions posed by Sky News, although his legal representative replied "Right now, yes" when asked whether he was a free man.

It has been widely reported that Maguire will not have to attend when proceedings resume on Tuesday.

Maguire was made captain by United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in January, just five months after transferring from Leicester City for £80million - a world record fee for a defender.

He played in 55 matches in all competitions for United last season, including every minute of their Premier League campaign as the Red Devils finished third.
