Earlier this week, as we covered what was becoming an interesting spectacle, namely the chase to secure the services of the Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire, our summary if you are a Maguire fan didn’t make for good reading.
Our article suggested that Maguire was going elsewhere united-set-to-lose-out-in-the-race-for-centre-back-to-you-know-who however, in a dramatic twist it would now appear that the player may be staying exactly where he is.
According to The Mirror, with Maguire still, officially a Leicester City player, Manchester United have pulled out of the race to sign the 26-year-old.
It seems if our quoted source has its facts correct, a deal to sign the defender would cost £100 million which is too steep for United, obviously.
Quite why Maguire is priced so highly is something I fail to comprehend.
If United were willing to pay such a high price for a centre-back, I’m convinced there are better than Maguire available.
It seems United, having announced that they’re after young English players, could have become the victims of their own aspirations.
