“Harry Maguire will officially lose the captain’s armband even if he stays at Manchester United,” the British newspaper The Daily Mail reported on September 9. Bruno Fernandes is likely to replace him as captain.”
Maguire was a highly anticipated signing for United. He was signed from Leicester City for a whopping £80 million. Many expected Maguire to do well at United after his good form at Leicester.
But the reality was different. Maguire lost the trust of the fans after making a number of embarrassing mistakes. Managers didn’t trust him either, and he spent more and more time on the bench. Even when a center back was needed, fullback Luke Shaw would start instead of Maguire. 안전사이트
Now, United are looking to sell Maguire. They’ve put a price tag of £40 million, half of his transfer fee, and no teams have shown interest. His wages are also high at £200,000 a week, making him even more difficult to sign.
He’s a headache for United. His defense is shaky, he’s hard to sell, and he’s set to take over the captaincy. United would be well advised to sell Maguire, even for a small fee, to free up funds to spend in the transfer market.
