Shock from England! Aston Villa close to Manchester United captain – Football World – Transfers

Aston Villa are on the verge of a blockbuster transfer after coming close to signing Manchester United captain Harry Maguire, claims TalkSPORT journalist Anil Kandola. The centre-back fell out of favor at Old Trafford and recent events may have convinced the England international to make a switch.

United manager Erik ten Hag even prefers to use full-back Luke Shaw as a central defender instead of Maguire. The 29-year-old England international has started just four Premier League games this season and has played just 193 minutes in the top flight since last September.

Maguire realizes he needs a fresh start, with Aston Villa reportedly ready to sign him as they look to restart his career. Birmingham are also looking for a replacement for the injured Diego Carlos, who was signed in the summer but has barely featured for the Villa outfit.

However, it is not clear whether Unai Emery’s team will sign Maguire on loan or on a permanent transfer.
