It’s actually crazy that a parody account has lead to media outlets reporting that it’s all been agreed. Because that’s exactly where they’ve picked it up from. lol 

Just goes to show how desperate the media are for him to join United. Any kind of source whether credible or not gets jumped on by them. The media has been an absolute circus with the whole Maguire Man U speculation all summer.

He’s not leaving - all the reports have been mostly fake news. They’ve bid way below our valuation, we rejected it, and they haven’t bid since. There’s 18 days of the window left and I can see our position becoming even more aggressive to stop them buying him. 

Are you speaking with inside knowledge or just speculating?

“Hope we drag this till 10th of august and then make a final bid.”

Window shuts at 5pm on 8th August 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Actually incredible how thick many of the United fans are. Every club has idiot fans in the minority but im convinced its the majority at Man U

There's something hilarious about the fact that a reknowned sh**-stirrer sat in his pajamas has got the entire national media on strings lol

Only kidding. Most of that post is basically what Percy has said, who is one of the only trustworthy journalists for LCFC. Rodgers has also said there will be a deadline before the deadline.

It’s bollocks. 

Seems every Sunday the media have nothing to talk about so re hash some Maguire crap. Last week he was having a medical in the next 48 hours at united, then 48 hours later he played for us at Scunthorpe. This week hes joining United for £80m. I just dont see how united have all of a sudden upped their bid by £20m. I know they are desperate but i just think its all nonsense. But i do like to believe things that fit in with what I want.

I think he's stating the bleeding obvious, isn't he? There is copious evidence of the mainstream media reporting unsubstantiated gossip as hard news regarding Harry Maguire. Why should we treat any of these latest rumours as serious news until they are corroborated by official statements or facts. The vast majority of these people who claim to be 'in the know' or privy to 'insider knowledge' are actually nothing of the sort (just attention seeking bullshiners).

 

I've got an even better idea - resist the rumour-mongering click baiters, and sit back relax, have a pint, smoke a cheroot or two and only accept transfer news as fact when you see the guy photographed holding a scarf aloft (or other clichéd signing picture), you'll be a lot happier...

Love the fact that im not remotely bothered if we keep him or sell him. We are potentially losing an England CB for a world record fee and I DONT feel like our team will be significantly weaker.

 

What a time to be alive 

Tend to agree. Would prefer to keep but it is win-win really.

 

The rumour mill and tabloids can all get their knickers in a twist as much as they like but it will either happen or not and only Harry, his agent and the two clubs DOFs will know for sure what is actually happening at any given time. If there is anything definite we will be told through official channels at the appropriate time and until then it is all just so much hot air, which will not alter the outcome one way or another.

Whatch the meltdown on the red cafe when pep sneaks in and takes him to where he really wants to go.  Biggest club in the world to second biggest in Manchester.

Anyone else really hoping we finally get all this fee nonsense sorted out and Harry just turns around during contract talks and goes "nah, you're alright mate". 

 

Meltdown would be epic.

And now rumours are that Pep Guardiola back interested in Maguire, the saga continues, and this morning I thought finally we got some movement with Man U

The best part about it is when his army of followers properly back him up whenever a sane person questions him lol

God bless Sean. Fantastic effort.

 

I only want to keep Maguire because of the rustle, genuinely, I'd rather see Soyuncu play.

I hope we keep him. Certainly think we have a top 6 side with Maguire staying.

Reported 3 hours ago

 

 

United have finally agreed terms on signing Leicester City and England defender Harry Maguire. The 26-year-old will arrive at Old Trafford in an £80m deal. (Bleacher Report)

 

AHH I see!!  Gossip!!

But nothing from reliable source.

He was Bleaching this same crap last week..he just does cut and paste.

All gossip columns are chasing their own asses!! And feeding themselves

in ever decreasing circles!!

That's why I said no BBC news!

Have no idea if this is still the case but it certainly was a few years ago..

 

I knew a friend of the Maguire family who used to tell me that Harry only ever took 25% of his earnings. His Dad took the rest to invest it in Harry's future. This friend of the family said that Harry was the sort of chap who wasn't that motivated by money - great family background etc..

 

Only posting this now because it seems a little relevant when thinking about Maguire's motivations... Everybody has commented on his sheer professionalism... Long may that continue...

Yeah but now its his missus that gives him his pocket money :P

There's so many plastics - news stories about Manx U sell papers. Or more apt these days are sure-fire click bait.

 

 ..... it's a self-reinforcing feedback loop - the more stories / media coverage about Manx U the more plastics ..... the more plastics the more the national media panders to their desire to read about the club they profess to 'support' ......

 

And it looks like they are going to get their £80 million man. The plastics will be happy.
