Former Manchester United defender, Jonny Evans, has compared the recent signing of Harry Maguire to Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk.

The former Leicester City defender became the most expensive signing of all time when Manchester United paid £80m for the services of the 26-year-old this summer.

Of course, the comparison with Virgil Van Dijk, who has been a big hit at the Anfield, was going to happen anyway and former United defender, Jonny Evans, has also weighed in with his views on the matter:

“Both are great on the ball, and Harry has got explosive pace people don’t see. He is powerful and good in the air.

“Everyone will compare the transfer fees but it’s so difficult to judge transfer fees nowadays. We are all human and it is weird we get traded for money.

“In the transfer market it’s all supply and demand and things can go up and down at any moment. The most important thing is for him to be judged on how he plays.

“I don’t have any worries about him there. He is tailor-made for Manchester United, it was a great move for him.

“He’s a player they needed. He’s got a really likable nature about him. He will be a real hit there, he is a fantastic player.”

Paul Pogba has already talked about Harry Maguire’s leadership qualities and positive impact at Manchester United and now Jonny Evans has joined in on the deserved hype.

Harry Maguire’s debut at the Old Trafford was mightily impressive as the Three Lions international showed his worth with a brilliant performance in the 4-0 win against Chelsea.

The center-back pairing of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire should be a big hit for the next few years at the Old Trafford as both the men hit their prime in the United shirt.
