Manchester United this season is going through a transition of being a revamped team across the board. Many technical aspects have been modified, a new system of play, other key players are those who are leaders of the team, the opportunities for players who have a media name such as Cristiano Ronaldo, or the same Harry Maguire who came to fulfill a role that has failed to materialize.


The central defender is going through a complicated moment in his career, he is out of rhythm, he has not been able to convince the fans with his performances on the pitch. He is one of the players who has been singled out for what it meant to pay so much for this player. The stats are not with him either, as all three games he played from the start ended in defeat for the Red Devils.
