Harry Maguire has assured Manchester United’s fans the club is doing everything it can to improve the squad ahead of Monday’s deadline.
United have signed just one player during the summer window thus far, with the Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek arriving in September. United are set to sign free agent Edinson Cavani after the Uruguayan’s contract at PSG expired earlier this year, but have been frustrated in their attempts to land priority target Jadon Sancho. United also want to sign Porto’s left-back Alex Telles but have not yet been able to agree a fee for the Brazilian.
Maguire praised his new team-mate Van de Beek in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of United’s game against Tottenham, as he said further new signings will help the squad.
He told Sky Sports: “We brought in Donny, who is a great player. He’s settled in brilliantly, but I’m sure he’ll still improve. The window is still open, I know the club and how it works and they’ll be working tirelessly to try and strengthen our squad.
“Bringing players in will help, as it does to any team in the Premier League, but we’re focusing on ourselves and we feel like we have enough in our squad at the moment to get the three points on Sunday.”
Maguire also added his thoughts on new Tottenham signing Gareth Bale ahead of the clash with Spurs at Old Trafford.
He added: “He’s (Bale) a top player, so he’s had an unbelievable career, fair play to him. He’s won everything, I respect him so highly as a player. I hear he’s a great lad as well, it’s a great signing for Spurs, it’s gonna be a big bonus for them. I don’t wish any injury on him. If he can stay away for one more game, it would probably help us.”
