Manchester United have landed their man. Harry Maguire becomes the Red Devils’ third summer signing and for me, he’s the most important acquisition made so far.
The 20-time Premier League champions have lacked that top-class defender, but Maguire’s much more than that. He’s also an on-field leader who isn’t afraid to bark orders at his teammates if the situation arises.
Shortly after sealing his move to Old Trafford, Maguire took to Twitter to send a classy message to those who have supported him, and played a part in his career. Slabhead also expressed his delight and honour to join United, too.
The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer regime will be based around acquiring players who actually want to be here rather than tempting mercenaries into the move by offering big pay-cheques.
Maguire’s quotes and demeanour give the look of a man who looks absolutely honoured to be given the opportunity to play for the biggest club in the country. That’s exactly what’s required.
I don’t like giving them any credit whatsoever, but United have to do it like Liverpool. Go for the players like the Andy Robertson’s, the Sadio Mane’s, the Virgil van Dijk’s. Build up slowly and we’ll be right up there with them eventually…
