Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad have been given two weeks off following their exit from the Europa League at the hands of Sevilla last weekend.
The 27-year-old defender is in Mykonos on holiday with his girlfriend Fern Hawkins, and was involved in an altercation with other British tourists last night.
When the officers tried to intervene, three men including the England international allegedly fought back physically and verbally while resisting arrest.
As a result, the three were detained in the early hours of Friday August 21, and led away in handcuffs, according to Mail Online.
Manchester United have commented and a statement read: “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.
“Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities.
“At this time we will be making no further comment.”
A police official told ESPN: “The soccer player was verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him. The three were resisting when brought to the Mykonos police station.”
