United captain Harry Maguire wants to stay at the club amid transfer rumours

As per the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has expressed his desire to remain at the club and compete for his position amidst rumours about his future.

Earlier reports suggested that Maguire might seek a transfer in the summer due to his reduced role under manager Erik Ten Hag.

Despite being a regular starter under previous managers, the English defender has been informed by the Dutch boss that he does not feature in his long-term plans for the club.

Maguire’s position at Man United seems to have been affected, with him often being considered the fifth-choice centre-back.

This situation has led to suggestions that he should consider a move to revive his career, especially since his record-breaking transfer has not yielded the desired results.

The club had hoped that Maguire’s arrival would have a similar transformative effect as Virgil van Dijk’s impact at Liverpool, but it hasn’t worked out that way.

Maguire’s weaknesses have been exposed when transitioning from a defensive style of play to a more possession-based football.

Ten Hag is actively looking to strengthen the team’s central defence in the upcoming transfer window, with Napoli’s Kim Min-Jae being identified as the primary target.

However, in order to raise funds for new signings, it is important for the club to consider selling players.

The fans would be disappointed if Maguire chooses to stay at the club despite the lack of regular playing time and is content with receiving his weekly salary without actively contributing to the pitch.
