The situation at Manchester United remains the same as it has been in recent days. Despite the fact that there is a new owner within the institution and the Glazer family have left behind their days as owners of the club, there is still no word on the new signings and departures for a squad that should be powerful for the coming months because of the European competitions they will face during the next campaign, including the UEFA Champions League and the traditional English cups.

The search for a new defender for the Red Devils has been arduous for coach Erik ten Hag, who understands that Raphael Varane cannot do all the work alone and needs a solid defender who will not make important mistakes at crucial moments in matches. Such is the case of Harry Maguire and his moments of forgetfulness in top level matches where he was tense and nervous.

It remains inconceivable how Maguire could cost more than 87 million euros for the Old Trafford side, even for other defenders with more laurels like Virgil Van Dijk or Thiago Silva, that amount of money is too high. So they believe this is one of the most misguided transfers the Manchester side have ever made, including some who didn't even play five or six games. Although his record with Leicester City is not bad and even successful there is no denying that the England defender has not lived up to expectations.

That is why there are already several Premier League teams who have been looking for him. But it is certain that they will not pay the same amount as United to take him and will look for deals that are less expensive and can suit both parties. There was a time when the board thought about paying him his buy-out clause so that he could negotiate with other teams without being contractually locked in.

How much money will they give for Maguire?

The Sun newspaper launches a report that Newcastle United is interested in signing Harry Maguire. The disadvantage is that it would only be as a loan for one year and a sum of 30 million euros. Manchester United wants to sell him at any cost and will not accept neither loans nor exchanges for the player who has been one of the most criticized players in the British territory.
