Manchester United are set to pay own goal specialist, Harry Maguire £10Million



The trouble in the central defence of Manchester United is being eased out. He has been the scorer of several own goals that affected the  club this season.

Daily Mail has reported that Harry Maguire is in line for a £10million pay-off from Manchester United if he leaves Old Trafford this summer.

Saturday’s FA Cup final is likely to be Maguire’s last game as a United player with the 30-year-old captain set for a place on the bench against Manchester City at Wembley.

Maguire cost £80m from Leicester in 2019 but is now valued at closer to £30m due to his age and the fact he is two-thirds of the way through a six-year contract.

Maguire has another two years left on the £190,000-a-week deal, and it’s anticipated that he would earn only half that amount at a new club – leaving United to foot a £10m wage bill to get him off their books.



Maguire has started just 16 out of United’s 61 games in all competitions this season with manager Erik ten Hag preferring to play Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw ahead of him in central defence.
