Harry Maguire breaks silence on Manchester United links

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United target and Leicester City star Harry Maguire has broken his silence amid rumours over a potential move.

The Englishman has been a target of the club’s since Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge with the hope being he could shore up their leaky defence.

United’s defensive woes are no secret and the centre-back would have potentially resolved most of their issues.

Maguire ending up remaining at Leicester with the club having very little reason to let go of one of their main stars.

Rumours resurfaced over a potential move once more but it appears that the former Hull man has hinted at remaining with the Foxes.

According to Manchester Evening News, Harry said: “Leicester’s an exciting club to be at − Brendan has really improved the team in the recent months, and he’s someone we’re looking forward to working with.

“I’m sure he will take the club forward. He’s definitely got his own aspects in the game, and I’m sure he will improve us.

“After a good pre-season, I’m sure he’s the man that can help us break into those European spaces.”

Maguire’s ambition for European football does bode well for Manchester United given their current Europa League status.

If Solskjaer’s first full season in charge ends up being successful then he could be able to offer the powerful defender Champions League football.

This would be even more appealing if Leicester fail to get to the next level this upcoming season.

Harry would certainly be an upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo and he could potentially form a solid partnership with the club’s current best defender in Victor Lindelof.
