Harry Maguire is fully co-operating with Greek police after an incident that happened while the defender is on holiday with his partner, his club have confirmed.
According to reports, Maguire was involved in an altercation while away with his partner and friends on the Greek island of Mykonos. They said the defender was involved in a fight which led to his arrest.
Manchester United issued a statement after the reports: “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.
“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.”
United have been given two weeks off after their exit from the Europa League against Sevilla last weekend. Maguire is in Greece with his family and friends to enjoy a break before the beginning of the Premier League season next month.

The players have been restricted as to where they can go for holiday this summer due to the travel restrictions put in place because of the coronavirus pandemic. And Greece is among the safe to travel list, which would mean Maguire would not need to self-isolate when he returns to England.
The squad are expected back at the training ground base at the start of September to begin preparations ahead of the new season.
