Manchester United manager was desperate to capture Leicester City’s defender Harry Maguire during the summer window but all his efforts were abortive.
The player was in action for the Foxes against Southampton on Saturday and was awesome throughout the encounter.
Despite being at the back of the pitch for most of the game, the England’s world cup star was able to get the winning goal for his side.
The game was settling for a 1-1 draw until the 24-year-old got the ball at the center of the pitch, moved it towards the Saints’ 18-yard box before unleashing a thunderbolt into the top corner to give Claude Puel his second win in three matches.
Should he maintain this form till the end of this year, it won’t be a surprise if United reignite their interest in the no-nonsense defender in January.
