Peter Schmeichel believes Harry Maguire will be a calming influence in the Manchester United dressing room and will prove to be a fine signing for the club.

The England centre-half made an £80million switch from Leicester City to Old Trafford this summer and impressed on his debut in a 4-0 win over Chelsea.

Legendary Danish goalkeeper Schmeichel was not surprised by how assured the 26-year-old looked on his bow in a Manchester United shirt having followed his progress since his arrival at the King Power Stadium.

‘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.’
