BBC are reporting he's gone

To be fair, they're just quoting Bleacher Report whose chief football reporter is that Dean Jones whose Tweet was quoted a few pages back. They haven't got a clue, no-one has.

Is Benkovic back in training yet or is he still on holiday like our other 4 young international players? Never really seen him play with only a few snippets in a Celtic shirt, I would have thought Rodgers would want him as Maguires replacement if he does go...

Yep 100%... He was on Chilwells Instagram story Friday and Chilly was taking the Piss out of him at how knackered Benkovic was on a speed bike test!

seriously!? he played our first preseason game with an illness that was caught in Evian, he played against Cheltenham and performed ok, he looks happy in training and he hasn't said anything to convince anyone he wants to move. BR says hes happy to stay and gives his impressions on the situ and thanked him for dealing with it perfectly in his last interview.. The man has been a professional through and through so far. But we get people that lap up anything the media produce and make him look like the enemy. lighten up. k thanks

Why do we have so many people on this forum that are more concerned about proving points rather than just discussing things? Where did you “learn” from his illness may I ask? And if his head wasn’t turned why don’t he just come out and say publicly he’s happy at Leicester to give us some re-assurance? 

 

However, I don’t disagree with what your saying. He will be professional and he’s a good lad by all accounts, but the longer this drags on the worse it’s going to get. I really don’t see United going above 75m for him unless they get desperate and it can’t be doing our SQUAD any good knowing he could be going and it’s all in limbo.

I heard he picked up the exact same illness that Lukaku contracted.... :ph34r:

And we'd be buying a player that wants to play for the club whereas Maguire wants out

True but Maguire’s ambitions can wait a year. He will still play is heart out for us or his value goes down.

 

We don’t need to sell and to make it worth our while I’m guessing the 85-90 million to be paid and deal sorted within the next 7 days or so is smart parameters from Top.

You’ve not even responded to anything else I’ve put so that proves my point.

 

Your opinion is clearly above everyone else’s. 

 

“K thanks”

Trust me I know what your saying but at this moment in time as a club looking to move forward sometimes we need to sell to improve.

 

If we sell Maguire we have already improved with Tielemans, justin, perez,

They all look to be fantastic players.

 

If it meant that we had to sell Maguire to bring in a good forward and a good winger I'm all for it.

 

However if we have no money left and it just meant Maguire staying with no other incoming then I'd prefer to sell for the benefit of the club to better ourselves and put us in a better position to challenge top 6

Agree to an extent. My biggest concern has always been we'll be weaker at the back.

 

Forming a centre back pairing that understand each other and therefore eliminate mistakes takes time and if we start the season with an pairing that dont know each others game it could cost us vital points in our search for a top 6 stop.

 

Maguire and Evans have had that time. Not sure anyone else (except Morgan who's surely not a first choice starter this season) has had enough game time with the team on matchday. 

 

We're putting a lot of pressure on Soyuncu or whoever replaces Maguire to take the ball forward or we're also losing out on that threat Maguire brings to the game when he goes on one of his runs forward. 

 

It scares and disrupts the opposition when a CB carries the ball that far up the pitch and pulls players out of position.

Isn’t the whole point of the Maguire saga to make it a saga?

 

All reasonable City fans expect him to leave it’s more about how he leaves. By asking for above market rate and making it as slow as possible, we send a clear message to any ‘big’ club that doing a deal is not easy. That in turn makes doing business with us less attractive so buys us more time to keep the squad together and slows the rate at which players leave.

imo last season Evans was by far the best CB, losing HM would be a set back in the short term of course but imo we've got CS and FB who will be eager to step in and are more  than able too.

its one of them...........were it could be short term pain for long term gain,

@urban.spaceman We must really try harder, such comments from Caf are hardly the required response! :@

Most fans of opposing teams who venture on here tend to be decent…. It would be a bit embarrassing jointing a forum and bating them…

 

anyway…. Isn’t that what Twitter is for :P

Was only joshing, they are basically a decent bunch, like most football fans. They do tend to have a higher than average set of entitled plastics, but suppose that is to be expected. :thumbup:

And no, thats not what Twitter is for, Twitter is for Sean.

Without being arrogant can I ask why it seems to have momentum? Papers last week reported fees and medicals were agreed, a few days later the second medical(foxestalk joke) was set and now papers who reported it was 'done' last week are doing so again.

 

Nothing has changed.

Two bids of 70 million by the Manchester clubs. Nothing since.

Papers and media desperate for a story. No story = no clicks.

 

Thecarrickfan - take that to Redcafe and tell them to stop getting their knickers in a twist!

Mate I love Albrighton but but let's be honest he's a workhorse, no one loves him for his skill and goals, they love him for his work ethic. Maguire is a top defender one of the best around in the Premier league so daft comment really. Big big part of this deal is who we replace him with. If Benkovic or soyuncu are allowed to come in and do a good job then it's a great deal. If we sign someone who is great then it's a good deal. But if we replace him with a lame duck for best part of 50m then it's a crap deal. 

Exactly the reason Albrighton keeps being underrated..!!  He has a wicked cross from both sides. He spots a man on the move,and is always looking for that man on the move...

 

His Only problem,as been managers keeping him on the backfoot, and trying

to force the defensive side of him...

Which he as also done well..

Like some posters asking Mahrez to improve on his defence..!!
