Toby Alderweireld, 25m, better than Maguire, will give at least two years at the top. If we get Maguire we're just barely improving our defence. And his weaknesses will not be glossed over as they are now.

Evans is better than Maguire and he was sold.

More accurately Evans is a better central defender than Maguire.

Maguire is a better footballer in terms of ability on the ball.

What do United want/need? If it's someone to improve them into a more solid a defensive unit then there is probably better.

If it's a defender who can also play out from the back and support the midfield then Maguire might be the man.

With their high possession style and the way they play out from the back I instinctively think he might suit City over United - but that depends on how Ole wants to develop the team.

I’d love to see Maguire playing in a Pep team. It’d be more comical than John Stones is.

We need someone who can be both a better defender and a footballer. We already have Lindelof who can do what you said about Maguire in that post.

It's why Maguire wouldn't be a good buy based on the fee we have been quoted. For that fee, he'd be expected to transform our defence as VVD did at Liverpool. If you think the critism of Pogba has been bad, then this will be worse.
