The following are the Manchester United morning headlines for Sunday, January 22nd..
United is keeping an eye on Kane’s situation.
Manchester United is keeping an eye on Harry Kane’s situation as they decide on a long-term striker target. Kane, 29, is the Premier League’s second-highest scorer this season with 15 goals and is in the final 18 months of his Tottenham contract.
United have long admired Kane, and the England captain was eager to move to Manchester when City failed to lure him away from Spurs 18 months ago.
Fifth-placed Tottenham have lost three of their last four Premier League games, and a failure to qualify for the Champions League would embolden Kane to seek a new club.
Maguire speaks out about his limited playing time at Manchester United.
Harry Maguire has stressed the importance of competition for places in Manchester United’s squad as the club continues to fight on all four fronts.
Under Erik ten Hag, Maguire has fallen down the United pecking order, starting just one Premier League game since August. Lisandro Martinez’s arrival and subsequent form saw the Argentine nab the spot to the left of Raphael Varane, while left-back Luke Shaw has recently been selected ahead of his England teammate in the center of defense..
However, as the only English team still fighting on all fronts domestically and in Europe, United has a lengthy schedule..
February will see the return of Europa League action as well as a constant barrage of midweek fixtures, and Maguire has stressed the importance of squad depth and competition in the second half of the season.
