He is Harry Maguire (30), a central defender who is still suspected in Manchester United even if he does well in the England national team.
Maguire started and played full-time in the 2024 European Championship 먹튀검증(Euro 2024) qualifiers against Italy on the 23rd and Ukraine on the 26th, respectively, 2-1. contributed to a 2-0 win.
Manager Gareth Southgate activated both Maguire and John Stones (Manchester City) in two matches. Ultimately, it was a success. Eric Dyer (Tottenham Hotspur) and Mark Gehi (Crystal Palace) were on the substitute list, but could not play.
In the national team, Maguire endured with interpersonal defense despite lack of mobility. Stones, Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), and Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), who are ahead of them, make up for Maguire’s weakness with speed.
However, at Manchester United, it is still a lump of doubt. In the Rafael Baran-Lisandro Martinez system, there were often cases where he got a chance as a replacement or started as a starter according to Eric Ten Hag’s strategic choice.
Maguire, who came to Manchester United in the summer of 2019, has often made big mistakes in big games. Doubts continued about whether he was the right defender for Manchester United, and it remains the same now. Until the summer of 2025, it is possible to hold on as a Manchester United official unless he chooses to transfer himself due to pressure and contract.
The ransom price also peaked and continues to decline. According to Transfermarkt, which evaluates player value, Maguire was worth a whopping 70 million euros (98.6 billion won) in September 2019, but as of March, it has plummeted to 25 million euros (35.2 billion won). Manchester United signed Leicester for a whopping 91 million euros (128.3 billion won).
According to ESPN, a sports media outlet, and the comprehensive newspaper Express, ‘Maguire claims to have good ball handling skills, but tends to rush to win the competition with his opponent. Maguire’s slow speed is a problem in the Ten Hag system, which runs a game with a sense of speed,’ he said.
In the end, the need to reinforce players comes to the fore, and it is in line with the conclusion that Maguire should be sold even cheaply. However, Maguire recently said through a number of media outlets, “I am not playing at the level I want this season, but what is clear is that I feel that my performance is good at Manchester United.” protested
In the case of the Express, Julian Timber (Ajax), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), and Axel Disasi (AS Monaco) were cited as replacements for Maguire’s transfer. At least these three are faster than Maguire and have an advantage in defense.
