Manchester United set to pay Harry Maguire €10million to leave the club

Manchester United are set to pay Harry Maguire ÂŁ10million pay-off to leave the club this summer.

Saturday’s FA Cup final is likely to be Maguire’s last game as a United player with the 30-year-old captain set for a place on the bench against Manchester City at Wembley.

Manchester United paid ÂŁ80m for Maguire to sign him from Leicester in 2019, but he is now valued at closer to ÂŁ30m due to his age and the fact he is two-thirds of the way through a six-year contract.

Maguire has another two years left on the ÂŁ190,000-a-week deal, and it’s anticipated that he would earn only half that amount at a new club – leaving United to foot a ÂŁ10m wage bill to get him off their books.

England manager Gareth Southgate warned last week that Maguire’s lack of first-team football at United cannot ‘continue forever’ if he wants to hold down an international place.

And Ten Hag spoke about the player’s predicament on Monday, admitting ‘that no-one would be happy with this situation – he is not as well’.

The United boss says it’s up to Maguire to make a decision about his future, and club sources echoed those comments on Wednesday night.

Maguire is one of a number of players facing an uncertain future at United after the Cup Final with question marks hanging over Anthony Martial, Fred, Scott McTominay, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
