There has been doubts over Harry Maguire’s future at Manchester United all season.
Ever since losing his place in the team following Lisandro Martinez’s arrival, Maguire has been linked with a move away from Manchester United amid fears he could lose his place in the England team.
The latest from respected journalist Steve Bates (via GIVEMESPORT) is Maguire has accepted his career at United is over.
Bates adds that Maguire’s team-mates are also of the belief that Maguire is unlikely to be at the club next season.
United have yet to have any serious interest in Maguire from other clubs, which means we could struggle to sell the centre-back this summer. The club will try to recoup as much of their £80 million outlet to Leicester City in 2019 as possible, but we know that nobody will offer anything near that amount.
Aston Villa, West Ham and Leeds have all been listed as potential destinations for Maguire, who would look at all three clubs as a major step down.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United would love to sign their former star, but it doesn’t look like they will be able to afford his wages.
Maguire could also move abroad, like Chris Smalling did when he joined AS Roma, but Inter Milan have been the only club mentioned thus. Perhaps we could strike a swap deal involving Kim Mae-jae?
It’s noted how Ten Hag is currently playing Luke Shaw at centre-back ahead of Maguire. With that, nobody needs telling that the former Leicester City defender is surplus to requirements in the eyes of our manager.
