Manchester United wants to sign Leicester City’s Harry Maguire in the summer transfer window after we were priced out of the Kalidou Koulibaly transfer.
According to reports published in the Independent Ed Woodward has been interested in the services of Kalidou Koulibaly for the last few years.
However, Napoli are demanding a transfer fee in the region of £90m for the Senegal hunk which has been deemed too expensive by the United board.
Instead, the reports say that we have turned our attention to the Leicester City Star and one of the England’s World Cup hero Harry Maguire.
The 26-year-old has been linked to Manchester United for the better part of the last year and was close to a switch to the Red side of the Manchester in the last summer window only for the transfer to fall through.
Harry Maguire is no doubt a big physical presence at the back, a decent ball player and of course, English!
However, the question here is, why would Ed Woodward take his hands off the Koulibaly deal when he would have to pay the same amount of money for Harry Maguire?
Everything considered, Koulibaly is a significantly better player than Maguire in every aspect of Football. The only thing Maguire has got over Koulibaly is the fact that he’s English and homegrown! But that hasn’t worked out too well for us in case of Smalling and Jones, has it?
It seems like the Manchester United fans on Twitter have the same feeling about this deal:
🤣🤣🤣 I’m tired of this useless club!!

Sick of hearing reports Utd are put off by price of players. Might not be true but you can’t compare Koulibaly with Maguire.

Put off by koulibalys asking price of 90 million but then they would probs sign Maguire for 86 million. Ed Woodward for ye.
