The centre-back moved from Leicester City in August 2019 and he made an instant impression, even convincing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make him the club captain midway through his first season. In a mark of his reliability, Maguire has already made 107 appearances as a Red in under two years. 

During a big interview with Gary Neville and The Overlap programme on Sky Sports, Maguire reflects on his move to United and how it could have happened a year earlier after the 2018 World Cup.

“With my age, I always felt like I owed Leicester a lot,” says Harry. “I spoke to [owner] Vichai [Srivaddhanaprabha] and he said there had been a lot of interest from Manchester United when Jose Mourinho was the manager. He said, ‘give me one more year and I will let you go’. I didn’t really push anything. Obviously, as soon as I heard of the interest from Manchester United, I knew I had my heart set on that and I knew I wanted to play for that club. But, at the age I was, I was 25 years old, I knew I had time on my hands and Vichai stuck to his word, and obviously the move happened.”
