Former Liverpool striker Fowler has given his take on the 26-year-old, stating that although he is not as good as Reds central defender Virgil van Dijk, he is worth whatever a club is willing to pay for him.
Fowler wrote in The Sunday Mirror (print edition, page 69, July 14, 2019): “Harry Maguire is no Virgil van Dijk. But if Leicester value the England defender at £90million and there is a club out there willing to stump-up the cash, then that is his true worth in the 2019 transfer market.”
The Liverpool legend added: “If Maguire as good as Van Dijk? No. But he would still improve most teams i the Premier League - and if Manchester United decide to pay, then know he WILL make them far more formidable.”
Good signing for Manchester United?
Maguire is a very good central defender who is yet to hit his peak, and the England international will make United stronger at the back.
The 26-year-old has done well for Sheffield United, Hull City and Leicester in his career so far, and the central defender is ready to make the step-up to Manchester United.
