Harry Maguire still on Man Utd’s radar, claims BBC Sport reporter

Manchester United are still tracking Leicester City defender Harry Maguire, according to BBC Sport’s Simon Stone.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with the 26-year-old last summer, but José Mourinho never got his wish as Ed Woodward failed to bring in a single centre-back signing.

That raised tensions and Mourinho ended up getting fired and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December.

Solskjaer is now left with the mess Mourinho tried to clean up and without a technical director in place, yet again the manager of Manchester United has to deal with the clown that is Ed Woodward…

Leicester are in a strong bargaining position after Maguire signed a five-year contract last September and Brendan Rodgers won’t want to lose his star defender anytime soon.

For the price it would cost to bring Maguire to United, it would be much better idea to look elsewhere for a top centre-back. He’s good but isn’t that much of an improvement on what Solskjaer already has in his squad.

Why not go for Toby Alderweireld or Milan Skriniar? It might be hard to persuade certain players without Champions League football next season, but we should at least try.

It won’t be long before United are back in Europe’s biggest competition.
