Former Liverpool player Graeme Souness has had his say on new Manchester United signing Harry Maguire.

Leicester City defender Maguire is on the verge of joining Manchester United this summer after the Red Devils agreed on a world-record fee of £80m for the England international centre back.

Graeme Souness spoke about Harry Maguire and his imminent move to Manchester United while he was doing his punditry work on Sky Sports.

According to him, Harry Maguire would be an outstanding player for Manchester United.

Leicester City and Manchester United were in negotiations for the better part of this summer’s transfer window before both clubs reached an agreement for Harry Maguire.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add a quality centre back to his team after the defensive issues of last season.

The Red Devils had one of the worst defensive records from last season after they conceded a whopping 54 goals in 38 league games.

Their defensive record was one of the main reasons why Manchester United missed out on the top four places at the end of the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be hoping that the signing of Harry Maguire will improve that department in the new season billed to start on Friday.
