Harry Maguire, the fresh-faced, good-looking, record-breaking £80million Manchester United defender, is now even more popular than Harry Potter, a Google search has revealed.

The little-lad magician has been the most popular 'Harry' for decades, but now the former Sheffield United, Hull City, and Leicester City big man has ousted Potter from his top-spot, and sent him back to Hogwarts Castle with his wand between his legs.

It's thought that, with so many people searching the internet for information about Maguire, his online popularity has soared exponentially, and, like magic, he has appeared - out of a hat - at the apex of the 'Harry search'!

Indeed, Maguire is now infinitely more popular than other 'Harries', Harry Belafonte, Harry Houdini, Harry Enfield, Harry Worth, Harry S. Truman, Harry Connick Jr., his England colleague Harry Kane, red-faced coach Harry Redknapp, and even the Queen's own gingernut grandson, Prince Harry!

One social commentator said:

"It's truly amazing! He's so popular! Potter fans are going to be livid!"

Police are not investigating.
