Harry Maguire is ‘angry, shocked, and upset’ after losing the Manchester United captaincy, prompting Chelsea to consider a bid

<p>Harry Maguire was ‘mad, astonished, and disappointed’ after being relieved of his captaincy of Manchester United after discussions with manager Erik ten Hag.</p>
<p>A report claims that Maguire is being pursued by Chelsea in an unexpected transfer, along with interest from West Ham, Tottenham, and Newcastle United. Inter Milan and the Saudi clubs Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal are also in need of center backs, in addition to Premier League teams.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-82213″ src=”” alt=”” width=”1142″ height=”597″ srcset=” 310w,×78.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1142px) 100vw, 1142px” /></p>
<p>The English defender’s few appearances under Ten Hag last season led to reports earlier this month that the Dutchman was prepared to fire Maguire from the position. In June, a number of teams offered to loan out Harry Maguire, but Old Trafford wanted a clean split and at least £50 million. The current asking price is £30 million.</p>
<p>Maguire said on Twitter, “After discussions with the manager today, he has informed me he is changing captain.”</p>
<p>“He explained his reasoning to me, and even though I’m personally very dissatisfied, I’ll keep giving it my best each time I wear the shirt, he said. I wanted to express my gratitude to the Manchester United supporters for their unwavering support when I was in the captain’s chair.</p>
<p>“It’s been a huge privilege to lead Manchester United since the day I took on the role, three and a half years ago, and one of the proudest moments of my career to date,” Maguire said.</p>
<p>“Whoever now takes it on will have my full support, and I wish them success.”</p>
<p>Only eight Premier League starts were made by the center back last year, which fueled continuous rumors over his future at Old Trafford.</p>
<p>Bruno Fernandes was most often named captain during Harry Maguire’s absence from the team last season, and it is anticipated that the Portugal midfielder will be granted the permanent position.</p>
<p>“Everyone at Manchester United thanks Harry for his contribution as captain over the past three and a half years,” the club stated in a statement. After informing the players, the management would “announce the new captain in due course.”</p>
<p>Since joining United in 2019 and leaving Leicester for 80 million pounds (now $105 million), Maguire has made over 170 appearances for the club.</p>
