Maguire to Man Utd / Man City

Recommended Posts

In words he won't force a move and forgo a huge loyalty payment if we did sell him ?

If we've got both clubs bidding at that kind of money we should sell imo. The only way you become a better club long term is by making profit on players and improving the squad in the process. That kind of money in 2 years from £17m (?) is too good to turn down.

For once, I actually think CB is currently our strongest area in the squad. Evans has established himself as number one and Benkovic should be coming back with a view to getting into the starting XI.

 

Wes Morgan has proved he still has the capability to do a shift for us when needed.  And Soyuncu has plenty of potential to be a good ball playing defender too.

 

Maguire is no doubt a big player still but if it's anything close to the figures people are quoting, I would sell him. Media seem to forget he's actually had a pretty poor season for us.

Has either club got a centre back wed take in return? Smalling isn't that bad really for example. 60 million plus Smalling would mean we had cover at lots of money.

Always figured that if Harry went it would for around the £50m mark, but it almost sounds like it could be around £75m now. 

Love you Harry, but come the **** on. Great for us (If He is going to leave), but Christ on a bike, transfer fees are just ridiculous.

Wasn't there a sell on clause

Really hope we keep hold of him and he stuffs so many of your words back down your mouths ........ I swear some of you would be happier if we had Wayne brown at centre back........

Not really. Maguire is now England’s fort choice centre half. We aren’t going to accept anything less than £90m, clubs interested in him know that.

75 plus add ons up to 90 would be great business. Wouldn't take any of their cbs as benkovic and soyuncu have the ability to make the step up. If he does go, then we must not even entertain any bids for anybody else and use the money for our 'problem' positions. We do not want to become Southampton, but it does show our prospective signings that we are a club that they can develop and be sold from (as that encourages them to come in the first place) but we will only sell for top dollar.

Because we think £90m is a great price for him?

Has anyone said they don't want him? I think people are realistic about having to sell some players sometimes unless you're at the top level. And that's refreshing. Better than being naiive.

its a tough one but if a 90m+ offer comes in then we should probably sell as much as it would be great to keep him you can't turn down that kind of money.

Great position to be in. Two cash rich clubs (one of which could be staring down the barrel of FFP restrictions so needs to move now) vying for our player. Look at how much Arsenal got for Sanchez last season when both Manc clubs wanted him. 

Honestly I'd just have a straight auction with the reserve at £75 million and see what happens. The downside is that it could bugger our purchases of other players if they know we have a lot. 

 

Nobody thought we were going to sell him for peanuts. Plus, any club selling players to us (or any other PL team) will want a premium for their players.

Massive for them if true. I don't begrudge clubs getting those payments from us

How about we try and make top six next season ...... that’s going to be easier with maguire than without him

Why not leave the finances of the club to those who are responsible inc our owners ???  We don’t need to sell this summer ..... we will probably need to next summer unless we make champions league because Europe league doesn’t provide enough income and unless Top is willing to make a fifty mill investment in the squad from king powers funds then we will be short re FFP

Based on his form last season I don't see how. He's a good defender but he ain't £75-90m good. Got a lot he needs to work on before he is

Ask Hull fans, they're owners will pocket the lot. Most wouldn't want to see it happen, adds insult to injury.

I didn't watch any of the England games. How did Maguire play? And Chilwell?

The other issue with keeping him and gambling on top 4/6, what happens if we get 7th and maddison, chilwell and Maguire all want to go in one window? Rather allow one to leave a season and we can properly prepare for it.

I thought Harry had a poor first match but came good against Switzerland. For me Chilwell was England’s best player vs Holland, but got dropped or was injured for the second match.
