Manchester United have placed a £50m asking price on Harry Maguire, a valuation that is ‘highly unlikely to be offered by any club’.
Maguire has been linked with an exit after losing his place as a first-team regular last season, with the club captain having made just eight starts in the Premier League.
The 30-year-old was dropped after Manchester United opened the season with consecutive defeats and has fallen behind Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw in Erik ten Hag’s plans.
A number of Premier League clubs have been credited as potential suitors for the England international, but the Manchester Evening News are reporting that the Red Devils’ £50m valuation has dissuaded clubs from making approaches.
Maguire was signed in an £80m world-record deal for a defender in 2019 and United are keep to recoup a significant fee, but the centre-back’s dip in form means their asking price is ‘highly unlikely’ to lead to offers.
Maguire is keen to secure regular football as he looks to retain his place in the England squad. Gareth Southgate warned the defender that his place with the national team is under threat if he remains on the fringes leading into next summer’s European Championship.
