Former West Ham United striker turned TV pundit Frank McAvennie has urged Manchester United defender Harry Maguire to join Leicester City.
Maguire fell completely out of favor under Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford following the Dutchman’s arrival at Old Trafford last summer.
The Manchester United captain has been heavily linked with an exit from the club this summer due to his situation at the club.
Frank McAvennie has claimed Maguire could return to Leicester City, where he really shone in the heart of defence.
The former Scotland international has claimed Maguire could revive his career if he returns to the King Power Stadium. McAvennie told Football Insider:
“He could go back to Leicester. They could do with him and they’ll get him half price as well. He was a star there, he really shone. He has to play. Sometimes at big clubs like Man United, “The shirt is too big for the players. It’s no disrespect to Harry, but if he returns to Leicester he can see his career come to an end.”
McAvennie insisted the Manchester United outcast could be a brilliant acquisition for the Foxes. He added:
“You see him for England and he’s decent so it’s weird. He’ll have to leave because he won’t get a game. It’s good to be captain but not if you don’t get a game. playing time. I think going back to Leicester would be a good choice.”
Harry Maguire has started just 11 games in all competitions for Manchester United this season while coming off the bench 12 times.
He never lived up to his massive £80m price tag during his time at Old Trafford.
