“Magure to Chelsea 80% loading” Chelsea boss Pochettino is making every move to sign Harry Maguire from Manchester United

Chelsea is considering the possibility of signing Manchester United’s Harry Maguire, which aligns with the desires of their current coach. Recently, Maguire voluntarily gave up his captaincy at Old Trafford after Erik ten Hag stripped him of the armband during a meeting. Despite limited appearances last season, the English defender expressed his determination to compete for a spot in the team and impress the new manager.

However, Gareth Southgate, the England national team coach, acknowledged that Maguire’s lack of playing time could eventually jeopardize his status as a guaranteed starter for the country. As a result, it seems likely that Maguire might depart Old Trafford this summer under unfavorable circumstances.

According to The Sun, Chelsea is preparing to make a move for the 30-year-old center-back, attempting to entice him to join their ranks in west London and turn down offers from other clubs like West Ham United and Tottenham. Although Chelsea’s transfer activities have been relatively quiet this summer, they might be swayed to pursue Maguire due to his experience as a senior player and his three and a half years of captaincy at Manchester United.

Chelsea’s new manager, Mauricio Pochettino, currently has options like Benoit Badiashile and Levi Colwill for the left side of a center-back pairing, so if Maguire were to join, he would likely fill the position on the right side.

The Mail reports that Manchester United is seeking around £40m for their center-back, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he joined them in 2019. Even though this asking price is only half of what they paid to acquire him from Leicester City, it remains a significant sum.

Additionally, Manchester United is believed to be in the market for new defenders, as well as a midfielder and a striker, as they look to strengthen their squad. According to Transfermarkt, Maguire’s current market value is estimated to be €20m.
