Parker: “Maguire is not a leader, he plays the game for himself, he sits way too deep”

Manchester United are set to sign two new center-backs in the summer transfer window, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allegedly searching for a companion for Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils have been fairly solid at the back this summer, but have still conceded more goals than any other team in the top five. Solskjaer wants reinforcements brought in this summer, and apparently wants a partner for Maguire to be signed.

The Red Devils have already missed out on Dayot Upamecano, as the Frenchman has agreed on a deal to sign for Bayern Munich.

Parker believes they need to sign two center-backs, as they need a proper replacement for Maguire as well as someone to go alongside him.

He told : “Despite the position they find themselves in the Premier League, they still need to strengthen in the transfer market this summer.

“People talk about bringing in a new partner for Harry Maguire, but I would look at bringing in two center-backs.

“Why can’t it be a player who comes in and plays alongside Victor Lindelof?

“Maguire is not a leader, he plays the game for himself, he sits way too deep, he dribbles for the sake of dribbling and runs himself into cul-de-sacs.

“The goal against Sheffield United, he put David De Gea in a terrible position.

“He made a terrible clearance and people then blamed the goalkeeper.

“Sometimes you need to look at the build-up to see the mistakes.”
