English soccer player and Leicester City defender Maguire has reportedly said he wants to be Man United New Captain. Should he eventually joins the Old Trafford club in this summer’s transfer window from Leicester City, the captain arm band is something he wants around his arm this season.
DAILY POST had reported on Tuesday that Maguire left Leicester City’s training camp in France to undergo Manchester United medical.
However, The Sun is now reporting that Maguire believes he has all the necessary qualities to become the Red Devils’ captain should he get his wish of moving to Old Trafford this summer. The newspaper also added that the centre-back wants to emulate Man United legends, Steve Bruce, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand by getting the captain’s armband at the Theatre of Dreams.
Recall that Man United had earlier this week agreed on a world record £80million transfer deal with Leicester City for Maguire. Maguire has been targeted by Manchester United after another impressive campaign with The Foxes. He has been a Leicester player for two years, joining in a £17million move from Hull in 2017.
The former Hull City star was a target for former Man United manager, Jose Mourinho, last summer, but the club was put off by Leicester’s valuation.
