And Puma have held off competition from adidas, Nike and Under Armour to tie him down to a £700,000-a-year deal.
Maguire, 26, will pocket £18,000 per game for wearing the £180 Puma One boots he showed off in a selection of edgy promo images.
The ace’s marketing value has skyrocketed since his United move but he still falls behind Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos’ estimated £2m deal.
And he is miles from Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible £20.5m-a-season partnership with Nike.
In an interview with SunSport last year, Maguire revealed he still drinks coffee at Costa and eats at Nando’s with pals from his home in Yorkshire.
And on the pitch his move to Old Trafford has made him hot property among the manufacturers who want him wearing their boots.
Magurie reportedly turned down a stunning £278,000-a-week deal from Man City to go to Old Trafford.
City put together a personal package that was around £100,000-a-week more than what United were offering.
But Maguire always had his heart set on a move to the Red Devils and joining another club was not an option for the Sheffield-born star.
