All roads lead to Lisandro Martínez. The Argentinian defender is physically ready to return to Erik Ten Hag’s plans as the defensive’s leader of Manchester United after his terrible and horrific injury, which stopped him around three longs’ months out of the field.

The best and recent example is the last friendly game between red devils against Lens last Sunday at Old Trafford, where the left foot defender was the best player of the match, confirming that he is 100 percent back, prepared for the next mission and ready to the new team’s challenges in the upcoming season.

The excellent moment for the World Cup 2022 champion with Argentinian national team in Qatar coincides with the awful present that Harry Maguire goes through, specially after the recent discussion he had with Ten Hag in the middle of the summer preseason. Martínez was a very well performed in the 3-1 victory with goals by the offensive Marcus Rashford, the Brazilian striker Antony, and the Brazilian midfielder Casemiro, each one in the second period. 

The Dutch trainer has more alternatives and options to replace the mentioned English in the lineup team. For example, Raphael Varane is a formidable current starter and Victor Lindelof is a promising current substitute. Two names that Ten Hag trusts very much to use in any time and crucial situation.

The main reason why Maguire could leave Manchester United

Despite red devils paid 88 million pounds for Harry Maguire, the key decision of Ten Hag with the English national team’s vice-captain was to remove the captain’s ribbon. For previous coaches, Maguire was a key element, but for the Dutch trainer isn’t a lineup player. In addition, the Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes ended as the new voice of command inside the field for the first time in his career.
