Michael Dawson urges Tottenham to sign oft-criticised rival defender in the summer

Michael Dawson urges Tottenham Hotspur to sign Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson has urged the North London side to sign Harry Maguire from Manchester United next summer.

The England international has fallen down the pecking order at the Old Trafford side since Erik ten Hag’s arrival. As a result, the 30-year-old could part ways with the Red Devils in the upcoming transfer window.

Speaking on Sky Sports (h/t Metro), Dawson, who spent almost nine years at Tottenham and was also appointed our captain at one point, believes Maguire will be up for grabs in the coming months and would like to see the Lilywhites acquire his services.

“There will be a lot of takers for Harry Maguire. I’d take him at Spurs tomorrow. I think big teams will take him for £40m.”

United signed the England international in the summer of 2019 from Leicester City. In the previous few campaigns, the centre-back had been ever-present in the Red Devils’ backline and has even been appointed the captain.

However, over the last few months, the defender’s performances for the Old Trafford side have been disappointing. On top of that, Ten Hag has found a solid partnership in Raphael Varane and summer 2022 signing Lisandro Martinez in the Manchester-based club’s backline.

But while Maguire has been underwhelming at United, his displays for the Three Lions have been flawless in the past few major tournaments. In the 2022 World Cup, the 30-year-old was a key player for Gareth Southgate’s team.

Tottenham have had a lot of underperforming stars this season. However, the defence has been especially bad. The likes of Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, and Clement Lenglet have not been consistent enough.

We also have Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez in our squad. Unfortunately, they have not filled the team with confidence either when they have featured.

Therefore, we could evidently do with some reinforcements in the backline. However, Dawson is wrong in suggesting Maguire’s name. The English national has made multiple errors during his stint in Manchester and we cannot afford to have a fragile backline next season.
