Between Harry Maguire and Manchester United, the adventure is close to conclusion. According to the British press, the much maligned defender should indeed engage with Aston Villa in the next few hours.
This is the story of a totally failed marriage. Since his arrival at Manchester United in August 2019, Harry Maguire has never managed to find his place in this member of the Big Six of the Premier League. As a reminder, the Reds Devils had nevertheless paid the price to bring in the native of Sheffield who was then playing in Leicester City. A check for 87 million euros had thus been signed, a colossal sum for a player with a defensive vocation.
For the Mancunian club, this investment will unfortunately never have been profitable. Regularly guilty of blunders and risky interventions, Harry Maguire quickly becomes the laughingstock of the lawns of England. A study will even show that he is the most insulted player in the Premier League on social networks, just behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
Harry Maguire should commit quickly to Aston Villa
Over the seasons, this player with an impressive physique will unfortunately lose his starting position. Since the start of the 2022-2023 financial year, the Three Lions defender has only had four Premier League starts. It should be noted, however, that Gareth Southgate had called Harry Maguire for the World Cup in Qatar. His performances during the World Cup were also quite good.

Despite this small bright spot in the storm, the 29-year-old’s divorce from Manchester United seems inevitable. According to British journalist Anil Kondola, an agreement would also be close to being reached with Aston Villa, current eleventh in the championship across the Channel. A photo revealed on social networks would even affirm that Harry Maguire and his agent were this Saturday at the Villans training center. Far from the pressure felt at Old Trafford, the former Foxes player could take advantage of this opportunity to relaunch his career.
