Manchester United captain Harry Maguire received bomb threat to his home.

Police sniffer dogs were seen carrying out bomb searches at the residence of Manchester United and England footballer.

According to The Sun, Maguire received the threat via email, which said that a bomb would be planted at the defender’s home.

Maguire lives at the property with his fiancé Fern Hawkins and their two children.

“Cheshire Police were called to reports of a bomb threat,” police said in a statement. “No evacuations took place, but as a precautionary measure a police explosives dog has attended the address this afternoon, Thursday 21 April, to conduct a search of the gardens and surrounding area.”

There has been increasingly volatile language aimed at Maguire over United’s performances in recent weeks, with the team losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the Premier League on Tuesday.

“The safety of his family and those around him is obviously Harry’s number one priority,” the England defender’s management team said in a statement.

“He will continue to prepare for this weekend’s fixture as normal and we will not be commenting in any further detail at this time.”
