There are no plans to sell Harry Maguire on the cheap.
“Manchester United are planning to let Maguire go to the highest bidder,” Football Insider reported on Tuesday.
Maguire joined United from Leicester City in 2019. The Red Devils spent a whopping £80 million on his signing, targeting him as a key part of their defense.
He didn’t quite live up to his price tag. Maguire has been on a downward spiral since joining United. He was heavily criticized for his slow feet and poor positioning.
Now, he’s completely lost his place at United. Maguire is now considered the fourth choice behind Rafael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, and Victor Lindelof.
He is likely to leave United this summer. United are looking to offload some of their players, including Maguire, to free up funds for new signings. 먹튀검증
There are even teams that want Maguire. West Ham reportedly offered United a £20 million transfer fee for Maguire.
The response was a rejection. According to the report, United were set to let Maguire go to the highest bidder just before the transfer window closed.
This is believed to be an attempt to encourage other clubs to compete. In addition to West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have also shown interest in signing Maguire this summer.
United’s desired transfer fee was also specifically mentioned. “United want £35 million for Maguire,” the outlet said.
