Manchester United concluded the third game of the pre-season, the club faced Arsenal at the MetLife Stadium in New York, with the intention of seeing how the players are coming along after the holiday period; during the game the coach was able to use more first team players compared to the last two games when he used the young players. 

One of the players who had the opportunity to have minutes was defender Harry Maguire, who during the week was being speculated that he could leave the team, however, before traveling to the United States, Erik Ten Hag announced the list of those called up for this tour and obviously Maguire was one of the chosen ones. 

This undoubtedly surprised all the fans who expected that after the coach had informed the player that he was not going to count on him for next season and that he would be stripped of the captain's armband, that he would not get any playing time or that he would simply be relegated to the bench to wait to be transferred. 

However, that did not happen, Ten Hag gave him the opportunity to play the second half of the game along with other starters, even so, his situation is still up in the air, as it is not really known what will happen with the defender, what is clear is that the coach will look to sell him before the end of the summer, so we will be waiting to see what happens. 

Teams interested in Harry Maguire

The English player has been put on the transferable list with the intention of leaving Manchester United as soon as possible, Ten Hag would seek around 50 million pounds for the defender who has a contract until 2025; a few days ago West Ham would have shown interest in Maguire, but after only offering a loan with option to buy, United had to reject it, so their situation is still unclear.
