Harry Maguire set to be released on bail after arrest for 'attacking cop and trying to bribe officers in bust-up'

MAN Utd star Harry Maguire is set to be released on bail after he punched a cop and tried to bribe officers in a bust-up in Mykonos, according to reports.

The £85million centre-back was arrested with two other men after a brawl outside a bar on the Greek island in the early hours of this morning.








Greek police confirmed today the captain, 27, was "verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him" after the trio rounded on cops.

The footballer, who rakes in around £190,000-a-week, then reportedly tried to bribe cops.

He has now been transferred to the island of Syros with the other men, aged 28 and 29.

An official police spokesperson said a case file has been opened against all three alleging violence against officials, bodily harm and attempted bribery.

He was pictured wearing the same shorts as he sported on the night out as well as a cap, face mask and dark shades when he arrived this afternoon.

The England star is set to be released on bail before going before a prosecutor tomorrow, according to unconfirmed reports.

His lawyer told local media "he is fine" and is set to deny "all charges and allegations".

Maguire was with a group of nine lads out in Fabrika – a trendy area of Mykonos, where there is currently a midnight curfew due to coronavirus.

A row then kicked off with a second lot of Brits, who were "annoying" women Maguire and his pals were out with, local media reports.

But police were forced to intervene when the two groups began brawling in the early hours.

When confronted by officers, Maguire and two pals began hurling abuse at cops – with one "throwing a swing" at an officer before a "fight ensued".

The group's mini bus driver then took the group to a police station.

A second bust-up between officers and the trio then broke out when they refused to enter the station – with all three arrested and detained overnight.





Maguire had spent the afternoon at flash SantAnna beach bar where he was seen boozing by the pool.

Tables at the swanky club cost around £1,000 each for an afternoon and the beds around £500 each.

The venue also offers a Midas-size bottle of “ultra-premium” Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, which comes with a helicopter ride through the Cycladic Islands, for an eye-watering 125,000 euros (£112,000).

Maguire then made his way to Bonbonniere bar at around 8pm where sister Daisy added a clip of him to her Instagram.

The VIP club sells high-end booze such as Grey Goose vodka for up to 1,500 euros (£1,350) a bottle.

It was then the group ventured out in footballer haven Fabrika where the row erupted.

Other footage has emerged of the star enjoying a boozy break on the luxury Greek island before the new season kicks off next month.

One video, which appears to have been shot on Wednesday, shows Maguire in a crowded bar posing for pictures with fans.

Maguire can be seen smiling as he checks his phone while a group of lads sing football chants behind him.


The defender also encountered Love Island's Chris Hughes on Wednesday night.

The reality star shared a photo of Maguire in his Instagram story on Wednesday showing the beaming footballer clutching a shot glass.

Hughes had his own trouble in Mykonos after he was left with a gash inches from his eye following a boozy accident on Wednesday.

The star is on a lads holiday in Greece with snooker champion Judd Trump, who yesterday celebrated his birthday.

Maguire also popped up at Trump's birthday bash on Thursday.

The defender can be seen in a group of people topless while bobbing along to music by a swimming pool.

The clip was shared on snooker player Oliver Lines' Instagram story.

And his partner Fern Hawkins posted an Instagram shot of the pair enjoying some time together 15 hours ago.

Fern, who has two baby daughters with Maguire, captioned the sweet photo: "Holidays with you" followed by a love heart.

A statement from Utd said: "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."

It comes after Utd suffered yet another painful semi-final defeat – this time to Sevilla in the Europa League.

Had they won, Utd would be facing Inter Milan in the final tonight in Germany.

Maguire said he was “devastated’ by the early exit on Sunday.

He added: "We deserved to go through but ultimately we fell short at the semi-final stage, for the third time this season.

"It means a lot to us, the boys are devastated. We have a good group of lads who know what it means to play for this club and losing isn't acceptable. Getting to semi-finals isn't acceptable and we now have to look at taking it another step.

"Maybe that little bit of inexperience cost us in the end. Even when we are on top, creating chances we shouldn't concede that second goal.

"They worked it well down the right but we have to do better. We conceded from two crosses and it's not good enough."

The Sheffield-born star became the world's most expensive defender when he signed for Utd from Leicester City for £85million in August last year.

He was named captain in January this year following Ashley Young's departure to Inter Milan.

But his position as captain could now be called into question following his alleged arrest.

He is next due to play at Old Trafford for their first game of the season on September 19 against Crystal Palace.

The row also comes a week before disciplinarian England manager Gareth Southgate names his Three Lions squad to play against Iceland and Denmark in September.

Maguire has made 26 appearances for England and was a key part of the team's journey to theWorld Cup semi-finals in 2018.
