Manchester United got ample options in the center-back position. The Red Devils agreed to pay a world-record 80 million pounds for a defender to land Harry Maguire to Old Trafford. United fought hard to get England’s best center-back. The fans of the Red Devils are happy to get a quality center-back – but other clubs are calling his signing a truly an over-paid one.
Well, they are right. But Had Ole got other options coming to Old Trafford. De Ligt is a coming star and joined a stable team, Koulibaly would cost over 100 million pounds, Varan is happy to stay at Real and the same is the case with Milan Skrinier, who wants to stay at Inter. After these world-class players, Maguire was the only one to look for. Indeed, his worth cannot be more than 60 million but the 26-year-old is hungry for success, which can’t be the case with others. Most importantly, his stats are not that bad. United fans should not compare Maguire with Van Dijk because leading Liverpool is harder than leading the Foxes from the Midlands.
