Tottenham could consider initial loan deal to onboard Manchester United’s Harry Maguire

According to Evening Standard, Tottenham could be considering an interesting move in the transfer market this summer, as they join the race for the signature of Manchester United’s centre-back, Harry Maguire.

The 30-year-old defender has found himself on the fringes of the United squad under manager Erik ten Hag, and both player and club are open to the idea of a fresh start. With that in mind, Tottenham have emerged as a potential destination for the England international.

Maguire’s availability has sparked interest from several clubs, but Tottenham’s pursuit of the centre-back could prove fruitful. The Lilywhites are in dire need of defensive reinforcements, and Maguire’s vast experience at the highest level could be just what they need.

The club’s new head coach, Ange Postecoglou, may have a preference for working with younger players, but the addition of a seasoned campaigner like Harry Maguire could provide invaluable guidance to the squad.

Moreover, Maguire’s arrival would not only bolster Tottenham’s defensive options but also address their homegrown quota requirements. As one of the key members of the England national team, Maguire’s presence would ensure Tottenham’s compliance with the regulations that govern the number of homegrown players in a squad.

However, there are a few stumbling blocks that might hinder this potential move. Firstly, there are concerns about Maguire’s hefty salary, which is rumoured to be around £190,000 per week and Tottenham will not want to match this.

The Australian coach has demonstrated a desire to build a team for the future, focusing on long-term development rather than short-term fixes. While Maguire’s experience and leadership qualities cannot be overlooked, his age and salary demands might not align with the club’s overall vision.

Considering these factors, an initial loan deal could be a potential compromise that suits all parties involved. Tottenham could explore the option of bringing Maguire on board temporarily, allowing them to assess his impact on and off the pitch before committing to a permanent transfer.
