It could get worse for Maguire — Mark Goldbridge



It could get worse for Maguire -- Mark Goldbridge

Manchester United now have a new captain in Bruno Fernandes, officially, but for YouTuber, Mark Goldbridge, things could get a lot worse for former captain, Harry Maguire.

The removal of Harry Maguire’s captaincy at Manchester United has sent shockwaves through the footballing world, with football expert Mark Goldbridge describing the move as “ruthless” and “fatal humiliation” for the England international.

As speculation about Maguire‘s future at Old Trafford intensifies, experts suggest that the Red Devils may have to make a difficult decision if they want to part ways with the defender.

In his latest online column, Manchester United fan and football expert Mark Goldbridge voiced his concerns about the recent turn of events surrounding Harry Maguire.

Erik ten Hag’s decision to strip Maguire of the captain’s armband was seen as a public humiliation for the player, which led to the belief that his departure from the club may be inevitable.

Maguire himself confirmed the captaincy removal through a tweet on Sunday, and Goldbridge remarked that it appeared like an “exit tweet” – implying that the player’s departure could be imminent.

While the decision might have come as a surprise to the 28-year-old defender, it now leaves him with the difficult task of deciding his future, especially if he wishes to retain his spot in the England national team.

Analysts are contemplating the potential hurdles that could arise if Manchester United chooses to part ways with Maguire.

With the player’s substantial weekly wage of £200,000 and his upcoming age of 31 in the coming season, any potential transfer could be challenging due to the financial aspects involved.

Goldbridge highlighted that Maguire’s status as England’s starting center-back makes him a valuable asset on the pitch, and Manchester United would likely demand a significant transfer fee, estimated to be around £40-50 million.

Added to the transfer fee, any interested club would also need to match Maguire’s hefty wage demands, making the potential deal complicated.

The football expert’s observations underscore the difficult predicament faced by Manchester United in the ongoing transfer saga. While they may want to part ways with Maguire, finding a suitable buyer willing to meet both the transfer fee and the player’s wage demands presents a significant challenge.
