Manchester United are set to make Harry Maguire the world’s most expensive defender before the transfer window shuts on Thursday – thanks to the £85m deal they’ve agreed with Leicester City for the 26-year-old’s services.
Considering the stick they gave us for buying Virgil van Dijk for £75m, this is pretty hilarious, especially when looking at how much better the Dutchman is.
A certain clip of Maguire being humiliated by Mo Salah is doing the rounds on Twitter, as well – so we thought it only right to bring your attention to it!
It’s from Salah’s debut Anfield season, and features the Egyptian scoring twice against Leicester to earn us a 2-1 win.
For both goals, Salah dribbles past Maguire – and in the second effort especially – the £85m man is spun and outmuscled.
How we’d like something similar to happen this term when Maguire is wearing a United shirt!
Throwback when Mohamed Salah scored twice vs Leicester from 1-0 down to 2-1. Look how he easily brushes through ‘the most expensive defender in the world’ Maguire for the 2nd. 👀 pic.twitter.com/0m5ei4Kzgr
