The bribery charges carry a maximum sentence of up to five years in jail and a fine.

It came after a bombshell one-day trial that heard how the brawl erupted when Maguire’s sister Daisy was injected with a “rape drug”.

Daisy had been approached by two Albanians in Mykonos on Thursday as her brother and a group of pals went to get burgers after a night out clubbing.

But Maguire’s fiancee Fern Hawkins soon realised her eyes were “rolling into the back of her head” so Maguire and a group of male friends rushed over to help.

Giving evidence at the Utd captain’s trial in Syros today, friend Ashden Morley said: “We held Daisy. Daisy began to start fitting. All the girls were screaming.

“People were coming down asking what happened, there was a large commotion.”

At this point, a minibus Maguire had booked showed up so the panicked group piled on and told the driver they wanted to go to a hospital, it was said.

But Mr Morley said they realised two cars were behind them “following our every movement” before the vehicle pulled up in a courtyard.

He added: “Our bus door opened and five or six males tried to force us off the bus by physically pulling us.”

The quantity surveyor, 28, told the court how they all feared they would be kidnapped and “held at ransom” as they were beaten with batons and kicked and stamped on by undercover cops.

One officer then allegedly kicked Maguire on the leg and told him: “Your career is over”.

As the girls were “in hysterics crying their eyes out”, the England star, 27, was arrested along with brother Joe and pal Chris Sharman.

Mr Morley said: “This was the first time that we knew we were at the police station.”

The court heard earlier how one cop required first aid when handcuffed Maguire attempted to break free- as another pal yelled “f**k, f**k the police”.

After they were taken inside the station, £190,000-a-week Maguire boasted about how “rich” he was as he tried to pay police off, it was said.

He allegedly said: “Do you know who I am? I am the captain of Manchester United, I am very rich, I can give you money, I can pay you, please let us go”.

Maguire is then said to have continued bragging about how “very rich” he is, adding: “I am the captain of Manchester United”.

The claims were made today as the trial kicked off in explosive fashion.

And it also came as Maguire was named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the upcoming Nations League games amid fears he would miss out.

Maguire’s top human rights lawyer Alexis Anagnostakis earlier tried three times to postpone the case but the judge dismissed his protests.

Once it finally got underway, he told the trial how the defender was “attacked by an Albanian group”.

He also denied the group would say “f**k Greece” – claiming “they love the country and are keen on the ancient Greek culture.

It was then claimed there is video shot from outside Mykonos police station showing how the police “mistreated” them.

The footage also shows them in a state of “extreme agony”, Mr Anagnostakis said.

The lawyer added: “My clients did not beat anyone, accost anyone, or injure anyone.”

Dad Alan has travelled to the court on the Greek island of Syros today to support his sons.

But none of the defendants – including Maguire – were in court today and are instead being represented by their legal team.

They had been partying in a swanky nightclub in Mykonos when sister Daisy was approached by a group of Albanian men.

It was previously alleged she was stabbed in the arm with a metal straw when she spurned the advances of the “gangster types”.

The jab drew blood – with big brother Harry stepping in to defend her when a fight broke out.

A source said: “Harry saw what was happening and remonstrated with them and things got heated.

“He decided to try to get out of there and wanted to hail a taxi. But he ended up arguing with some undercover police officers and ended up at the local police station.”

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

The £85million centre-back was arrested with Joe and Chris after a fight outside a bar on the Greek island in the early hours of Friday morning.

He spent two nights in a cell with Joe and Chris before appearing before a court on Saturday in Syros.

Maguire is now understood to have travelled back to the UK.

His sister Daisy was yesterday pictured arriving back in England wheeling a suitcase.

Brother Laurence Maguire was also pictured at the home in England as his brothers Harry and Joe await their fate in a Greek court.

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.
