- Defender is now fifth choice
- EURO 2024 under threat
What is the news?
Manchester United is eager to offload Maguire this summer and is even willing to offer him a significant sum of money to facilitate his departure. Reports suggest that United is prepared to transfer €10 million of the fee to Maguire himself, hoping to persuade the English international to agree to leave.
Maguire’s position in the pecking order at United has declined this season with the arrivals of players like Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. The defender has made only a handful of appearances and was even benched in favor of left-back Luke Shaw at one point. Maguire’s place in the England national team is now at risk, prompting him to seek a transfer to safeguard his chances of participating in EURO 2024.
With Maguire essentially being the fifth choice at United, securing a transfer is crucial to increase his playing time. However, the challenge lies in his expensive contract, which sees him earning around €200,000 per week at Old Trafford. It is anticipated that Maguire may need to accept a pay cut of approximately 50% at another club. United is reportedly willing to compensate him for the loss of salary by offering him approximately €10 million upon his departure.
