Harry Maguire (30, Manchester United) is getting attention from Aston Villa.
Maguire,먹튀검증 who led Leicester’s fairytale win in the 2015-16 season, transferred to Manchester United in 2019. At the time, Manchester United invested 80 million pounds (about 130 billion won), the highest transfer fee for a defender. It was expected that he would play an active role as the main axis of the team.
However, the recruitment of Maguire is leading to failure. Maguire repeated fatal mistakes as the season went on. Along with strong criticism from fans, even a bombing incident occurred. After coach Eric Ten Hag took over this season, he was completely pushed out of the competition for the starting position and started only 8 times in the league.
Manchester United are preparing to overhaul their defense. With Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Baran taking the center stage, they are trying to organize Maguire and Victor Lindelof. After the sale process, we are preparing to recruit players, and we have chosen Kim Min-jae (Napoli) as our target.
Manchester United have been preparing to recruit Kim Min-jae since last September. In particular, in a situation where Kim Min-jae’s buyout was triggered on a limited basis from July 1 to 15, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Newcastle joined the recruitment process. From the perspective of Manchester United, if the sale of Maguire proceeds quickly, the recruitment of Kim Min-jae can also gain momentum.
In the midst of this, Maguire was recently linked to Tottenham. It has been reported that Tottenham may try to sign Harry Kane through the signing of Maguire. Tottenham fans are worried about the worst situation, with Maguire joining players who are already showing uneasiness in the defense, such as Eric Dyer and Clément Lenglet.
However, a new team has emerged that is interested in signing Maguire. The British ‘Football Insider’ said on the 7th (Korean time), “Aston Villa wants to sign Maguire and has great plans. Villa also contacted Manchester United for Maguire in January.” It is a plan to recruit a villa that can be welcomed by both Kim Min-jae and Son Heung-min.
