Man United: Ten Hag Receives Encouragement To Seal £27M Deal, Key Man's Old Trafford Days Numbered

Here are the most recent updates from Old Trafford.

Ten Hag has preferred a centre-back pairing of Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane this season, and the duo has yet to disappoint him since he first put them together. This resurgent centre back pairing has relegated £80 million Maguire to the bench. Is Maguire's time at Manchester United coming to an end?

"He does stand a chance of coming in during domestic cup matches, and Ten Hag may even throw him in with the under-23s to keep him ticking over, and although I expect Maguire to be a good enough professional to get his head down and do whatever is asked of him, I think his time at Old Trafford is ultimately coming to an end," Stan Collymore said of the Englishman's predicament at Old Trafford.

"Maguire’s agent is Paul Stretford, who was also my agent when I was a professional player, so I know Stretford will not want his star client sitting there not doing much. He will know that he has a really big asset on his hands, so he will want him to be playing."

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid may be about to fulfil Ten Hag's dreams. According to reports this week, Ten Hag is interested in bringing the Atletico Madrid player to Old Trafford for a fee of £27 million. In line with United's pursuit of Oblak, People Person now claim that Atletico Madrid is interested in De Gea.

The interest in De Gea is beneficial to United because it means Atleti will relieve them of the £300,000 the Spaniard earns from their wage bill; it also suggests that Atleti is willing to let Oblak leave.
