Harry Maguire has started one game for Manchester United this season; the 30-year-old center-back has been included in Gareth Southgate’s England team to face Australia and Italy; Maguire was connected with a summer move to West Ham, but it did not happen.
Harry Maguire agrees that if he continues to play barely once a month, he and Manchester United will need to “talk about things.” The England’s center-back is concerned about his playing time after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford and losing his captaincy.
Maguire, 30, was linked with a summer move to West Ham, but that did not materialize, and he is desperate to reclaim his starting spot under Erik ten Hag.
However, with Euro 2024 on the horizon, Maguire accepted his lack of opportunities could become an issue sooner rather than later.
“Yeah, of course,” he said ahead of England’s matches against Australia and Italy. “I mean, I’m not going to sit here all my life and play once every month and if it carries on then I’m sure myself and the club will sit down and have a chat about things.
“But, honestly, at the moment I’m fully focused on two games for England, two big games.
“Then I’m fully focused on fighting and trying to get back my place at Manchester United and helping the team climb up the league to where we should be.”
