United have confirmed the England international defender is “cooperating with authorities” and they have been in contact with him.

The club issued a statement on Friday morning that read: “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.”

Maguire has been on holiday on Mykonos since United’s season ended with a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Europa League semifinals on Sunday.

Two other Britons were also detained.

“The soccer player was verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him,” a police official said. “The three were resisting when brought to the Mykonos police station.”
