Since returning from England's Euro 2020 campaign last summer, Maguire has appeared a shell of his former self, and his form has only become worse as the season has proceeded. Maguire was said to be suffering with the extra responsibility of captaincy by Metro.co.uk in November, with the armband – previously worn by Roy Keane, Wayne Rooney, and Bryan Robson – said to be 'weighing heavily' on the 28-year-old centre-back.
Maguire has been defended by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now Ralf Rangnick in the wake of his problems, but the England international has come under fire again in recent weeks following a pair of poor displays against Burnley and Southampton. Several United players have been quietly 'airing their frustrations' at the club's Carrington training camp, according to The Times, who are perplexed by the centre-continuous back's inclusion in Rangnick's starting XI.
This season, Maguire has started more Premier League games (21) than Victor Lindelof (17) and Eric Bailly (3) combined, and many believe the time has come to remove the ex-Leicester player from the firing line. Former United full-back Paul Park told The Daily Express earlier this week that the club should seriously consider selling Maguire during the summer transfer window. 'On my opinion, if Manchester United were to go close to recouping their investment in Harry Maguire, I believe they would have to consider it,' Parker remarked.
