Go where you’re loved – Ex-Man City manager tells Maguire to leave Man United

Former Manchester City manager, Stuart Pearce has advised Manchester United defender, Harry Maguire to join West Ham United.

Pearce believes Maguire is not wanted by Man United hence why he wants him to move to the Red Devil’s Premier League rival, adding that the England defender will be an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.

Maguire, who was recently stripped of the Manchester United captaincy has reportedly drawn attention from West Ham United and Aston Villa of late.

Speaking with talkSPORT about Maguire’s situation at Man United, Pearce said: “For me, he [Maguire] is an absolute no-brainer for any team. West Ham, 100 percent. You go where you are wanted.

“You go where you are loved and if that is West Ham or wherever… he’d be a very great addition.”

The 30-year-old who is down the pecking order in the manager, Erik Ten Hag’s choice of defenders at Old Trafford, joined the club from Leicester City in 2019.

Meanwhile in other sports news…

Mason Greenwood recently informed his friends that he will never play for Manchester United again.

Rape and assault charges against Greenwood were dropped in February, but the Red Devils have since commenced internal investigation, stalling the forward’s return to the pitch.

The 21-year-old player, who was initially arrested in January 2022, expected to join Erik ten Hag’s squad after the charges were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service but he has become frustrated at the lack of progress.

A source told The Sun: “Mason believes he’s finished at United. He’s sat at home kicking his heels and very frustrated. He wants to get back playing football but realises his situation is very complicated and it’s his own doing.

He is determined to play football again but doesn’t think he’ll ever pull on a United shirt ever again.”

Greenwood has yet to be allowed to return to training with United despite still earning £70,000 per week. His contract at Old Trafford will expire in the summer of 2025.
