United Find Perfect Partner For Maguire

Image for United Find Perfect Partner For Maguire

The quest to find the perfect pairing, at the heart of the Manchester United defence, continues.

It appears, on the surface, to be a never-ending quest as the club, according to the media, continue to look for the perfect partner for Harry Maguire.

Today, as I scanned the media, the name of another potential centre back signing has surfaced.

According to TeamTalk, Manchester United are interested in signing Jules Kounde.

The 22-year-old French defender is currently on the books of the La Liga side, Sevilla.

However, his performances have also generated interest from two of the giants on the continent, in the shape of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

But according to our referenced source, Manchester United have a cunning plan to thwart the big two.

Our source is championing the suggestion that the club are willing to offer Sevilla £60 million to land the player.

Now whether such a move will be successful remains to be seen.

But do you see Jules Kounde as the perfect partner for Harry Maguire?

    they dont need a partner for maguire, they need to replace maguire

    I like Kounde, but an element of what we’re lacking is aerial ability. He’s decent in the air, but at 5’10-5’11 he’s not going to be winning the ball against for instance Diagne.

    A name that amazes me hasn’t been mentioned is Tapsoba (Leverkusen). He’s about 6’5, bit long legged like Smalling and can be a bit clumsy. But he’s fast, great at one on ones, incredible in the air, solid positionally. Likely available for less than Kounde and we appear to have a good relationship with Leverkusen.

    In a few years I expect his name to be alongside the Upamecano’s, De Ligt’s, Konate’s etc. But of fine tuning to his game, I think he would complement Maguire’s game.

    Agree with Sadek. A decent replacement is needed. If Maguire is the best centre back England can use then they and United will win nothing.

    Why do we need perfect partner for Harry Maguire?
    I think Maguire is the worst defender Man United ever signed…
    I think, it should have gone like this: Man U needs to find a perfect partner for Eric Bailly…

  • Dalmas says:

    I think Maguire is the big problem united will think of his replacement

  • prince says:

    The idea of having a partner for Harry is good but lets try and use what we have for now we need to win games . We have ERIC give the guy the chance to prove himself in the pitch , i think for the mean time Ole need to drop victor and put on Eric . If there is any need we can take on KOUNDE OR someone cheaper with quality ….DIAGINE maybe the solution.

  • Hear hear! I'm says:

    I am in complete agreement !!
