Manchester United boss wants to sell Harry Maguire next summer

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to sell Harry Maguire next summer, according to the Guardian.

The 29-year-old joined Old Trafford in a world-record £80 million deal in 2019 from Leicester City.

The centre-back was impressive during his initial years in Manchester, but his levels have massively dropped recently.

The England international is currently struggling for game time at the Red Devils, with Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof ahead of him in the pecking order.

The former Sheffield United star has made only three starts under Ten Hag in the Premier League this season.

His current contract worth £190,000 per week at United expires in 2025, with the club having the option to extend it by another year.

However, Ten Hag is open to selling Maguire next summer to help fund a squad rebuild.

Despite his struggles in the English top flight, Maguire is expected to be first choice for Gareth Southgate at the 2022 World Cup.

The experienced defender has made 48 appearances for England, with seven goals to his name.

Should United sell him? 

Maguire hasn’t been at his best this season, but he is still a world-class defender. He is highly rated for his passing, technique, defensive prowess and dominance in the air.

However, the centre-back has struggled to perform well this season, and Ten Hag’s decision to sell him looks correct if the fee is reasonable.
