Harry Maguire Signals Desire to Depart Manchester United
In a blow to Manchester United, their captain Harry Maguire has reportedly expressed his intention to leave the club.
The spotlight is on Maguire as the Red Devils’ captain appears poised to depart Old Trafford.
The English defender has experienced a significant fall from grace, finding himself lower in the pecking order behind Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martínez, Victor Lindelöf, and even Luke Shaw.
Maguire’s arrival at Manchester United in 2019 for a record-breaking fee of £78.3 million made him the world’s most expensive defender, surpassing the sum paid by Liverpool for Virgil van Dijk. Although he signed a six-year contract following two impressive seasons with Leicester, it is debatable whether he has lived up to his price tag.
With his international career potentially at stake, Maguire is now set to depart the club. However, finding a new club willing to match his hefty £190,000-a-week wages has proven to be a challenge.
