Looks like Maguire could be arriving this week. A lot of outlets all saying the same £65mill. We will have to wait and see😆😆.

Agree2 Disagree16

It's only the daily mail reporting this.

22 Jul 2018 17:20:06
Also Star Express MEN and all over the net . Also here in Spain 😆😆.

There's been some hysteria on the site about the club falling behind or going in the wrong direction which I personally don't think is correct. However, signing Harry Maguire for £65m would be one of the most personic things I'd have ever seen in football.

22 Jul 2018 20:08:04
Personic, do you mean moronic? In which case I wholeheartedly agree!

22 Jul 2018 20:32:51
some reports saying he would only come in if one of Rojo, Smalling or BAILLY is sold -now that would be moronic . he is our best CH.

22 Jul 2018 21:11:06
At least he can head the ball in set balls. I don't care what are fees and if it means one of Smalling/ Jones is gone.

22 Jul 2018 21:12:58
do not see why we want another centre back victor showed for sweeden how good he can be him an baily could be the heart of our defence for years.

22 Jul 2018 21:13:48
Rj in today's market that is prob a good price

Especially how good at the world cup he's just performed.

I don't understand this site sometimes

People cry out to make signings then change there mind when they hear a figure.

25 million players don't go for that anymore football has evolved in 5 years time you will prob see the very best go for 500 million.

Rojo singed a new contract 2 month ago.

22 Jul 2018 21:47:00
Maguire is average at best. What’s hard to understand about that? £65m for him? Football, bloody hell as our former esteemed manager once famously said.

Lindelof has a fabulous world cup why not give him a go?

22 Jul 2018 22:00:52
I'm not a huge fan of Maguire. In my opinion Alfie Mawson is a better left footed, English, ball playing centre back. The only thing Maguire does better is get his head on the ball. However, some of his headed clearance leave a lot to be desired. He also has a tendency to wander off and leave the backdoor open.

Maguire is a player who needs to play in a back three. Lindelof, Bailly and Maguire could be solid. However, I would still prefer Mawson at half the cost if we had to sign an English centre back.

Personally I work rather not sign anyone and give Tuanzebe and Lindelof a chance to seal a spot along side Bailly.

I don’t see how Maguire is a huge step up from Smalling and Jones!

{Ed001's Note - did you need the word huge in there?}

It's not so much the fee for an individual (which I think would be a World record for a cb? ) that is the issue for me even though that is about 4 times what Maguire should actually be priced at. It's taking a huge amount of money which could impact signing others which would be the worry. Also that we would even think about signing him would be amassive concern.

He is an average CB who has developed a far larger than average head. He isn't actually very good at bringing the ball out from the back. He tends to run into space in front of him, 50% of the time just punting into the vague direction of a teammate, not actually passing to them. We have Chris Smalling who can do that and a lot of people on this site (me included) think we need an upgrade on him.

Just because the media have a semi for Maguire at the moment doesn't mean he's any better than he actually is. Surely people can see the likes of Alderweireld, Varane, Gimenez, Bonucci etc who we have been linked with are all far better than Maguire?

{Ed001's Note - it is less than Van Dijk went for in January.}

23 Jul 2018 07:27:30
So it is ed. Completely forgot about Van Dijk.

23 Jul 2018 11:27:08
Would Varane cost much more? Ten times the player.

23 Jul 2018 12:45:26
Would you blame them if they said 65 for Maguire, 75 for van dijk ok varane is 150.
