Man United star to be sold after club staff’s massive reservations come to light

Posted by

Harry Maguire’s skill in control is appreciated by Manchester United’s coaching staff, but they have serious concerns about other facets of his play.

According to Rob Dawson of ESPN, despite a successful international holiday with England, Maguire still has a difficult road ahead of him to secure his future at Old Trafford.

According to Dawson, Erik ten Hag is unlikely to change his favored center-back pairing of Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane in the wake of Maguire’s performances for the Three Lions against Italy and Ukraine.

That Maguire felt the need to come out swinging and defend himself in the public eye despite beginning and playing every single minute of England’s first victory over Italy since 1961 is evidence of his current state

As United’s captain and England’s top goal scorer among defenders, Maguire claimed that he has nothing to show to anyone. These comments were not well received by all fans.

In his article, Dawson goes into great depth about Maguire’s internal conflicts at Old Trafford, including his obsession with checking social media constantly to see what irate fans are saying about his performances.

Following his £80 million transfer from Leicester in 2019, Maguire was eager to accept the captaincy when it was given to him by Solskjaer. However, according to sources, it has come with more pressure and scrutiny than he anticipated.

Maguire sometimes focuses too much on social media criticism, according to sources who spoke to ESPN, despite being instructed to avoid using Twitter right after games.

“It didn’t help last season that he also got entangled in Cristiano Ronaldo-related locker room politics. Sources claim that Ronaldo expressed his desire to serve as skipper to Rangnick, the caretaker appointed after Solskjaer was fired in November 2021. Rangnick said no.

Dawson describes a horrible incident in which a few of Maguire’s fans harassed his family members while they were dining at an Italian eatery in Bergamo. This event happened after Liverpool humiliated the Red Devils 5-0 in October 2021; Maguire was responsible for several of the goals allowed.

Just days after Liverpool’s loss, United was in Italy for a Champions League match.

The United captain’s family had to exit the restaurant due to the jeers hurled at them.

The coaching staff at United, according to sources who spoke to ESPN, likes Maguire’s skill with the ball but is concerned about his propensity to rush out to win challenges and what they perceive to be a dearth of mobility.

The fact that United has only lost three times when Varane and Martinez began together has contributed to the season’s lack of opportunities.

Maguire will likely leave United in the summer when the transfer window opens because his time there is beginning to appear increasingly bleak.

Ten Hag will take into account reasonable bids for the 30-year-old, particularly if he decides to add another defender to the team.

Axel Disasi of Monaco, Jurrien Timber of Ajax, and Kim Min-jae of Napoli are just a few players for whom the Reds have already been connected with moves.
