Really hope city buy maguire and we go elsewhere.

Half decent on the ball and good in tbe air and that's it.

He loses possesion a lot, lacks pace, tactical awareness isn't the best.

For me not much better than Smalling and certainly not worth anywhere near the 80mil quoted. I don't see what people obsession with him is.

If can't get Koulibaly or De Ligt id go for Dias.

Theres better defenders out there that would improve us more that Maguire.

The fact that's he's half decent on the ball means he is much better than smalling.

Gareth Southgate is probably one of the most timid men in football but he was pretty ruthless and scathing in his criticism of smallings weaknesses.

Your centre backs have to be good on the ball if you want to suceed as a top team as you will have the majority of possession in most games.

Not disagree with you, but with Brexit
Not sure how this will effect transfer in the future.
What do you think Ed's?

Will brexit effect transfer of players?

{Ed001's Note - depends on the terms of it. Nobody can say what will happen as no one knows.}

I've said on here a few times that I'm really against the signing of Maguire. He's very good in both boxes at set pieces and is good enough on the ball but not much else in my opinion. The media have built him up as this fantastic defender off the back of a world cup where England didn't beat anyone of genuine quality despite getting to the semis and he played in a back 3 which helped cover some of his deficiencies.

The best sides would target him as he cannot deal with any type of quick movement around him. Coming out from the back with the ball is fine but the more I see of Maguire, the more I am convinced he is absolutely aimless when he runs with the ball and has no clue what his next pass will be.

14 Jun 2019 19:27:24
I rate Maguire and think he has the attitude to make I at United. Hungry, hard working and talented.

14 Jun 2019 20:39:03
I know stats don't mean much but, Smalling per 90 min has better stats than VVD and Maguire. (i think)

For me Maguire loses ball too much and ends up out of position creating space for openents.

Rather have players out the italian league over Maguire. Players like Milenkovic, De Vrij and Manalos to name a few.

Whats with the buzz on Maguire? Like yeah decent on ball (but loses it a lot and ends up out of position) good in tbe air but everything thing else average. Rather keep smalling than spend 70+ mil on a over hyped player that's not going to massively improve us.

Go all out for Koulibaly or De Ligt or even Dias who i think would flourish.

14 Jun 2019 20:59:17
Well, supposedly it’s a tussle between Pep and Ole for Maguire’s signature. Who are we to argue? If Pep rates him, and Ole - who could spot a centreback’s weaknesses a mile off - what do we know?

14 Jun 2019 21:19:13
Imagine a Brexit back four of Shaw, Smalling, Jones and Young. We'd be sorted.

14 Jun 2019 21:56:28
What do you mean imagine.

With Woodward in charge THAT will be our back four.

Time will tell .
But we also need quality signings
Let's get this transfer window over and done with.
Start of season will give us a clue where we will finish in the league.
Fingers crossed we start with a good momentum and carry it on till the end of the season.

14 Jun 2019 22:16:33
Apparently on the amazon prime series of city, Pep singles out magurire as a weekness ass no pace and should target him. I've never seen it but heard it on the grape vine.

14 Jun 2019 22:43:22
Would Maguire be an improvement on our current options at CB? Yes he would, although that is more an indictment of our current CB's than it is an endorsement of Maguire.

Is he value for money at the reported 70-90m price bracket. Absolutely not.

He would improve us, but he wouldn't lift us up to the level we require.

Best avoid him. Players such as Dias or Milenkovic although not as good as Maguire right now have a much higher ceiling and are available for half the price. Best to go for one of them and spend the rest of the money improving the squad elsewhere.

In order of preference
De Ligt

15 Jun 2019 10:06:24
Also the last two players we "beat" City to (Sanchez and Fred) have hardly set the world alight.

I'm starting to think they are making up interest in poor players to make us buy them trying to beat City to a player.

15 Jun 2019 10:31:27
For me, my order would be.

Varane (not going to happen but wishful)
De Ligt

Then Manalos, De Vrij and about 20th place probably Maguire, personally think De Ligt or Dias will sign.

15 Jun 2019 11:39:54
It still AMAZES me how Nathan Ake gets overlooked by the majority.
Forget the BIG names, look under the surface at proven, statistical analysis of the players and you will surprise yourselves.
Ake, Romagnoli, Ake and possibly De Ligt are the main 4 we should be looking at. For an experienced CB, we should be looking at Alderweireld.

15 Jun 2019 15:28:06
Good shout on Ake, rather have him than Maguire.

Definately need at least 6 signings to try get back in top 4 at least.

CM x2

As much as i love mata i'd let him go and move on, i'd also let Matic go along with Rojo, Darmian, possibly Lukaku if can get a replacement.

15 Jun 2019 17:10:17
If we spend 80 million on Maguire I am done.

Varane wants out and he is class 80 million would get varane if Madrid want pogba ask for varane as part of the deal.

Football manager tactics I know but still there are better defenders for 80 million out there.

15 Jun 2019 20:39:37
Did ed002 not tell you a while back we were not looking into player swap deals as it becomes messy. I believe Mr Varane has a bad injury record so 80m No thanks.

16 Jun 2019 04:05:57
I’d shift on jones Royo darmian n buy the spurs cb we need a experienced English speaking cb to go with lindelof! A rb 2 cms maybe a dm, rw, cf maybe more depending on out goings but we don’t do well on those.

16 Jun 2019 10:35:02
I believe Mike Phelan as Hull manager gave Maguire his debut so there is a known connection. The rumour is we are willing to sell Leicester Bailly in return, if they want him.

16 Jun 2019 11:52:02
Maguire is not the finished article nor the first choice of many but he can get on the park (as he is fit) and does a job most of the time. Wouldn’t be the worst signing but hog the CB pairing is him and Lindelof next season then it will be adios CL see you in 2021.

17 Jun 2019 10:00:10
I seriously think Pep is employing the dark arts, and in a fiendishly clever plan, is feigning interest in players he knows are bang average, knowing full well that Ed will cream his knickers at the thought of putting one over City.

17 Jun 2019 11:21:25
In order of personal preference
The black rock Milenkovic (Bleki)
Jonathan Tah.
