To come into Manchester United as their biggest transfer of the season can be nerve wrecking. But to walk in as the most expensive defender in the world can lead to self-doubt and destruction within many. Hopefully new Manchester United recruit Harry Maguire isn’t one of them. United pay the enormous fee of £80 million to secure Maguire’s service and will hope that his impact will be immediate.
Last season United were guilty of letting slip many goals in crucial junctures. They were urgently pressed to make new defensive recruitments. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Maguire will help shore the defense this campaign. While fans understand the need to be patient with Bissaka, Maguire will not be afforded the same understanding. It is imperative he signs or the restless United fans may call for his head before the next summer.
Maguire was solid for Leicester last season. The same or perhaps even better will be expected of him at his new club. The centre back is excellent in the air and has the ability to score the occasional goal. He may be a little slow. However, he is a good reader of the game and very few can match his composure in the field.
