It has been speculated that HARRY MAGUIRE will join Tottenham and leave Manchester United.
The 29-year-old Red Devils captain has lost his starting position at Old Trafford this season due to a decline in performance.
Gareth Southgate’s inclusion of the former Leicester City star in his World Cup squad allowed the central defender to rediscover his form.
Maguire appears to have regained his confidence after being one of England’s top performers during their run to the quarterfinals.
Ten Hag has challenged him to replicate those performances for the Three Lions with United, despite United having “performed poorly” during his tenure as manager.
However, talkSPORT Breakfast host Ally McCoist does not anticipate him to remain with the club after the January transfer window opens.
McCoist believes he is not good enough to play for Premier League leaders Arsenal, but he believes he could still end up in North London when pressed about his future.
He stated, “Well, that’s debatable. Obviously, he will desire to play.
I’d say he’s good enough for Spurs right off the bat. Arsenal? Possibly not at the present time
However, he has been one of England’s best World Cup players.
Manchester United is interested in signing Illan Meslier.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United starlet Illan Meslier, having previously been linked with the Frenchman during the summer transfer window.
According to Media Foot, the Red Devils and Premier League rivals Chelsea are both interested in signing the 22-year-old in 2023, with the youngster expected to leave Elland Road in the near future.
This comes after previous reports in the recent window suggested the Old Trafford outfit were interested in the former Lorient sensation, despite journalist Fabrizio Romano claiming at the time that the player was regarded as “untouchable” by the Whites.
Despite the fact that the 6 foot 6 menace has three and a half years left on his current deal in Yorkshire, this latest report from France suggests that a departure could be on the cards next year, with Jesse Marsch and co reportedly eyeing Croatian star Dominik Livakovic as a replacement.
Rep Ferdinand’s masterclass.
A new goalkeeper remains a notable priority for Erik ten Hag, with current number one David De Gea facing an uncertain future at the club with only six months remaining on his contract, albeit with the option of triggering a 12-month extension.
If the club is looking for a replacement for the Spaniard, who is reportedly willing to take a pay cut to stay at the Theatre of Dreams, Meslier could be a viable option, with the towering stopper having shone in English football in recent years.
The “ridiculous” talent, as described by The Athletic’s Phil Hay, made the most saves in the division last season (143), helping his current team to safety, after finishing fourth in that metric the year before with 140 saves.
Signed for £5 million in the summer of 2020, the £22k-per-week ace – who has started 14 league games this season – is now valued at around £50 million, according to Phil Hay of The Athletic, with such an exciting asset unlikely to come cheap for Ten Hag and co.
Although acquiring the France U21 international from their bitter rivals may prove contentious, United could replicate their success after signing club legend Rio Ferdinand from Leeds in 2002.
That £30 million swoop proved to be a real masterstroke for the Red Devils, as the Englishman went on to enjoy a glittering 12-year stay in Manchester, making 455 appearances across all competitions.
