Former Manager: Harry Maguire will be an outstanding Man Utd defender


    Former Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle manager Graeme Souness has backed Harry Maguire to be a major success at Manchester United.

    According to Sky Sports, United have agreed an £80m deal to sign the Leicester centre-back,

    The move is subject to a medical and would eclipse the current world-record £75m Liverpool paid for a defender when they bought Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in January 2018.

    But Souness believes the England international will be worth every penny.

    “Everyone knows that [United] are desperate to get back challenging for the Premier League.”

    “There is a premium to be paid normally for United and this time, there is a premium on a premium.”

    Souness has highlighted Maguire’s versatility as being one of his major assets as a defender.
