Harry Maguire said to leave Manchester United with Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham tipped to move in January
West Ham, Newcastle and Aston Villa have been told to do their utmost to steer Harry Maguire away from Manchester United in January.
Maguire was again left on the bench by Erik ten Hag in their 1-0 win over Wolves on Saturday.
Luke Shaw has been favored as the England centre-back alongside Raphael Varane in the first two Premier League games since the World Cup.
The £80million defender had lost his place in United’s first team earlier this summer to Lisandro Martinez and has yet to have a chance to earn it.
Ex-Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino thinks Maguire should look elsewhere.
“If you were Maguire sitting there as a centre-back and he’s got Luke Shaw in front of him, he’ll be thinking ‘I have to leave Old Trafford’,” Cascarino told Weekend Sports Breakfast.
“He could say it’s a tactical decision for some reason. Diego Costa was up front for Wolves. You’d like to think Harry Maguire would like to fight with Costa.
“They won the game, so it’s not a problem. For Harry Maguire, he will only think how far down the pecking order he is.

He continued: “I think it will be very difficult to get Harry Maguire out. If it’s on loan, it’s more likely.
“At the end of the season, Maguire will look elsewhere. He plays for England and wants to be a starter.
“Varane made the quarter-finals of the World Cup and went further. He [Maguire] will think “well, he’s playing, that’s no reason for the World Cup”. I have been left out and Luke Shaw is in front of me”.
“I think Harry will have to think about his future at Old Trafford. He will be incredibly disappointed.
“If Ten Hag is still the manager next summer, I don’t think he will want to stay.
England legend Stuart Pearce has joined Weekend Sports Breakfast and asked a trio of Premier League clubs to make a move for him.
He said: “If I was West Ham, if I was Newcastle, if I was Aston Villa, I would be everywhere trying to get Harry Maguire out of this.
“I would ask if he is available. He would be a brilliant addition to a football club.
“He has the right age, the right stature, the right experience. He might just need another challenge now as he’s not getting regular football.
