They are accused of bodily harm and “serial insult”.

Maguire and a pal are have also been charged with serial bribery and violence against officials.

They deny all the charges against them.

Dad-of-two Joe is also a footballer and played for Scunthorpe United, Nuneaton Town and Boston United before signing for Gainsborough Trinity in 2018.

But he recently left the Northern Premier League club in search of first team football.

Joe has joined Harry and their sister Daisy for a week of partying in Mykonos.

But Utd captain Maguire was taunted by rival fans during a three-day drinking session that ended with his sister being stabbed with a metal straw.

The brawl erupted outside a swanky nightclub when a man — described by sources as “gangster types” — had started chatting up the star’s younger sister.

And when she turned him down, she was jabbed in the arm – drawing blood and causing her to faint. Harry then stepped in before a fight broke out.

When plain-clothed police came to break it up, the Utd captain was allegedly “verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him”.

Maguire is now understood to have travelled back to the UK ahead of another hearing in court tomorrow, which he does not have to attend.

But the case could be thrown into jeopardy after staff in the building tested positive for coronavirus.

Sheffield-born Maguire became the world’s most expensive defender when he signed for Utd from Leicester City for £85million in August last year.

He was named captain in January this year following Ashley Young’s departure to Inter Milan.

He is next due to play at Old Trafford for their first game of the season on September 19 against Crystal Palace.

Maguire has made 26 appearances for England and was a key part of the team’s journey to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018.

But the legal action could throw a spanner in the works for strict England gaffer Gareth Southgate when he names his squad on Tuesday.
