Despite signing Raphael Varane, and with clear question marks over Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly, it means manchester United may target another left-sided centre-half and move Maguire across.
Erik ten Hag will attempt to revitalise the flagging career of Harry Maguire. One question that Ten Hag wants answering is why Maguire appears to be far more comfortable playing for England than for #mufc.
Maguire is not the only player Ten Hag is studying with the new manager also analysing Marcus Rashford. There is a growing sense that he, and the club, might actually benefit from him being sold.
The struggles of Aaron Wan-Bissaka will also be reviewed by Ten Hag.
Ten Hag will target at least three key signings during the forthcoming transfer window with an acceptance that it is impossible to carry out all of the changes that are needed immediately.
#mufc’s first priority will be to establish what has been described as a plan of action under Ten Hag and how they will operate. There is a clear sense that given Ten Hag was his first-choice, the changes need to be driven by John Murtough.
Erik ten Hag has already identified a core of roughly eight #mufc players that he feels he can trust and build around.
