Harry Maguire could reportedly end up in jail for up to three years if he is convicted for his part in an alleged brawl in Mykonos unless he pays a fee.
The Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, was arrested with two other men on Thursday night following an altercation outside a bar on the Greek island and appeared in court today on charges which are said to include violence towards a police officer and bodily harm.
Unconfirmed reports have suggested that events unfolded after Maguire’s sister Daisy was stabbed in the arm “with a sharp object”.
The 27-year-old has denied the allegations against him but The Mirror claim should Maguire eventually be convicted then he could avoid prison by taking advantage of a scheme that would require him to pay a daily fee instead.
The newspaper says that over the course of a three-year term that could amount to around £90,000 – around half of Maguire’s weekly wage at Old Trafford.
United sent two lawyers out to Greece to represent their skipper on Friday night and in a statement said that it would be “inappropriate” to comment further at this stage.
