If given the choice, it appears that Manchester United fans would prefer to have Harry Maguire in defence than Phil Jones.
The 26-year-old was once tipped to become one of the best players to ever play for the Red Devils by then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson. However, things have not panned out that way for the former Blackburn Rovers centre-back.
Jones has struggled for form at times this season and injures have severely impacted his development at Old Trafford. Maguire, on the other hand, has gone from strength-to-strength at Leicester City and could even take the United defender’s spot in England’s starting XI for the upcoming World Cup campaign.
Fans of the Football FanCast Accy Show will know that we tend to recommend a Premier League outright win treble each week. Those fans might also be aware that this coupon has paid out on many occasions—including the last PL game week!
Take a look at our latest top flight treble—as well as our very tempting EFL fourfold—in the latest edition of the show!
With that in mind, we recently asked United fans to vote for which Three Lions man is the better defender – Jones or the Foxes star, who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million.
And the results of our poll don’t make easy reading for Jones, with 59% of voters believing the former Hull City defender is the better centre-half. Manchester United fans, would you like to see Maguire join the Red Devils in the future? Let us know by commenting below…
