Harry Maguire midfielder believes he possesses all the qualities necessary to become United’s captain like the former Rio Ferdinand legend.
The 26-year-old is determined to leave Leicester this summer to join Man United. The Reds have repeatedly proposed to the Foxes but the latest price of up to 80 million pounds is still rejected.
Maguire still hopes that negotiations will quickly come to an end so he can join a big team like Man United. Besides, the midfielder confessed “wanting to wear the M.U captain’s armband to rfaise the trophy trophies”.
Maguire is said to be the idol of Steve Bruce, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand since childhood and wants to be as great as these three seniors. However, his wish is not known when it will become a reality. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned M.U will not throw too much money in the Summer 2019 TechCenter. If they cannot finish the Maguire case then they will switch to other cheaper targets.
Currently, M.U has a lot of personnel for the center-back position. Axel Tuanzebe is likely to be retained while Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, and Phil Jones may leave.
Is Maguire really the best defender in the world?
Harry Maguire played in the World Cup semi-final and became one of the most highly-rated defenders in the Premier League. However, even so, Maguire is hard to be the best player in his position.
However, if Leicester reserve the view, forcing United to pay £ 80 million, Maguire will become the most expensive defender in the world. At that time, the money will surpass the £ 75 million that Liverpool paid Southampton to own Virgil van Dijk, who is not only the best defender in the current football village but also a heavyweight candidate for Golden Ball title 2019.
Remember, Maguire only joined Leicester two years ago from the relegation club Hull City for £ 12 million. And while Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to buy Maguire as soon as possible to reinforce the defense, the leadership of M.U and Leicester has yet to find a common voice in unifying the price.
