November 12, 2022

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is ready to let Harry Maguire and Fred leave next summer.

According to the Guardian, Ten Hag is ‘intent on selling his captain to help fund a continuing overhaul of the squad’.The report further claims that he is ‘preparing to release Fred when the midfielder’s contract expires in June’.

Maguire was retained as the club skipper before the start of the season. However, his massive dip in form has made him the fourth-choice centre-back under Ten Hag.

Fred is in the final year of his contract at United, and it looks like the club has decided to move on from the Brazilian they signed for £52 million in 2018.

£130 million down the drain for Manchester United

United signed Harry Maguire for a mind-boggling £80m fee from Leicester City in 2019.

It was always going to be tough to justify this hefty fee,e but Maguire’s struggle for form hasn’t helped him either.
