Harry Maguire’s pay rise makes selling defender harder for Manchester United

Manchester United star Harry Maguire has received a pay increase that makes it difficult to sell the defender, according to reports. The England international struggled for regular game time under Erik ten Hag last season. And the Dutchman is open to offloading the centre-back as he looks to raise £100million for new recruits.

According to The Guardian, Maguire has received a boost to his pay packet along with other members of the United squad.

This is because the Red Devils qualified for the Champions League last season, finishing third in the Premier League table.

But while Maguire is open to leaving United, the increase in his wages makes it difficult to sell the 30-year-old.

It’s claimed the United skipper, who was made captain by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in January 2020, will ‘measure any prospective move against the potential loss of earnings’.

And Maguire will also have to consider whether leaving United, one of the biggest clubs in world football, will damage his chances of being an England regular further down the line.

And Maguire isn’t the only player United are open to offloading as they look to reel in Manchester City next season.

Ten Hag is hoping to get around £30m for Fred, who has been linked with Roma and Fulham.

Speaking after last month’s FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City, the Brazil international confirmed he could leave by saying: “I still don't know, I have to talk with my family.

“I still have one year left on my contract here. Now it's holiday time and a good opportunity to rest.

“I’ll talk to my staff, to the club and see what everyone's decision is.

"I do have to talk with Ten Hag as well. He's the manager and the conversation has to involve everyone. We have to see how next season will plan out.

“I want to be important, I want to help the team, so we'll see. But I've always been and still am very happy at Manchester United.
