Solskjaer delighted to have captured ‘number one target’ Maguire for Manchester United
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Harry Maguire was always his main target as he looks to rebuild the club after a disappointing 2018-19 season.
Maguire left Leicester City for United in an £80 million ($97m) deal, a world-record fee for a defender. He had been the subject of constant transfer speculation, with Manchester City also reportedly interested in his signature, before making the move to Old Trafford on August 2.
The lavish fee has inevitably drawn comparisons to Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, who was the world’s most expensive defender until Maguire came along.
