This Summer, Man United Open to Allowing £200k-p/w Star to Depart

Harry Maguire could be facing the exit door at Manchester United this summer, with manager Erik ten Hag reportedly open to the idea of selling the defender. According to Manchester Evening News, the Dutchman is open to the prospect of the 30-year-old moving to Serie A, where he has attracted interest from a number of Italian sides.

Maguire has had a mixed season at Old Trafford, with some standout performances mixed in with errors that have cost his side crucial points. While former Man United goalkeeper David De Gea praised the centre-back as “fantastic” earlier this year, he has been unable to cement himself as a regular starter in the team, making just 13 Premier League appearances this campaign.

Despite a solid World Cup campaign with England, averaging a 7.34 Sofascore rating in Qatar, Maguire has struggled to consistently deliver the levels required of a Manchester United captain. His error that led to Sevilla’s opening goal in their Europa League meeting last summer was emblematic of a wider failure to perform when needed most.

While there is still the possibility for Maguire to prove himself in the coming weeks, journalist Dean Jones believes he has been given a “lifeline” by the club’s lack of options at centre-back. However, if he fails to step up, a move to Italy could be on the cards for the former Leicester City man. Fans will be watching eagerly to see how Maguire responds in the coming weeks, as the club gears up for what could be a summer of upheaval.
