Back in 2019, Manchester United broke the bank to make Harry Maguire the most expensive defender in the history of the game. A decision they should really regret now.
The Old Trafford faithful thought that the England international would be as good as Van Dijk has been at Anfield. However, the club captain has been absolutely average in over 12 months.
Somehow, he still has the armband and with that, he put in terrible performances against Brighton and Brentford.
Fortunately and shockingly, Chelsea are looking to hire the services of Maguire. Not only that, The Mail claim that the Blues are prepared to sell Christian Pulisic to Manchester United in a swap deal.
The American international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford lately as Ten Hag looks to bolster his attack.
In his first season in England, Pulisic featured in 34 games under the management of Frank Lampard and directly contributed in 21 goals (11 goals and 10 assists). He was a key player under the current Everton boss.
However, the situation is completely different with Thomas Tuchel in charge at Chelsea. Last term, he was absent until October due to an ankle injury but since returning to fitness, he only started twelve games in the Premier League.
This term, thus far, the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker is yet to start for the Stamford Bridge outfit and has featured for a total thirty-one minutes in the opening two PL games.
The £145,000-a-week star (Goal) can play anywhere in the offense and in my view, we should swap Maguire to sign the 23-year-old. I’d like to see Varane partner Martinez in the central defense. What do you think?
