In order to meet their goal of signing more homegrown players, Tottenham Hotspur are thinking about a deal for Manchester United’s Harry Maguire, who is now out of favour at Old Trafford.

As a result of Harry Maguire’s decline as a defender and Erik ten Hag’s clear indication that he doesn’t trust the England international, the club is now willing to trade him when the summer transfer window opens.

The former Leicester City defender had a few successful seasons after joining United on a world-record deal, but he eventually slipped down the lineup and is now regarded as an unenforceable player.

And it is understood that the Carabao Cup winners included Maguire in the deal to sign Mason Mount; although it remains to be seen where the 30-year-old will land, one thing is sure: he is not in Erik ten Hag’s plans at Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Spurs are anticipated to announce Ange Postecoglou as their new manager, and he will have no doubts about the scale of the assignment he is about to undertake at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Australian manager, 57, who previously led the Brisbane Roar, Melbourne Victory, Yokohama F Marinos, and Australia, is scheduled to embark on his largest managerial assignment to date after winning the Scottish domestic triple over the weekend. He is relocating from Glasgow to London.

What can he do during the summer since there are lots of problems waiting for him when he puts his foot across the door?

Should Harry Maguire be signed by the former Celtic manager? That we don’t know. But Maguire is clearly aware that his time at Manchester United is finished, and if he wants to continue fighting, he will need to win a spot in the starting lineup, which seems impossible as United wants to sign Kim Min Jae, and if they are successful in purchasing the defender, then Harry Maguire will become the fourth-choice centre-back. 

The England international can do that if he wants to, but moving to another club might not be a bad idea given how many fringe players have done just that by leaving their comfort zones to join other clubs and reawakening their careers.

However, the North Londoners have not yet submitted a bid, so for the time being, nothing is certain.
