Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire is working hard to get into the best possible shape ahead of pre-season.
According to Fabrizio Romano’s Live Here We Go on Instagram, Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is undergoing a gruelling fitness schedule.
Harry Maguire is not yet back at Manchester United’s pre-season due to his involvement for England in the June international friendlies.
However, he is not resting up, and is using the time productively to get fit and sharp ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
Harry Maguire following Marcus Rashford lead
Harry Maguire is working intensely and has been seeking the guidance of 2004 Porto Champions League winner Ricardo Carvalho, a former teammate of Benni McCarthy.
Romano reports: “Here’s Harry Maguire training three times a day in Portugal… for almost three weeks now. He’s spending time with training one on one with ex Portuguese legend defender Ricardo Carvalho.”
MORE UNITED STORIES
Harry Maguire did not play frequently last season, starting only eight Premier League games, so he’s certainly fresh enough to be doing extra training.
His commitment and desire to improve himself and his situation has to be admired.
Maguire is following Marcus Rashford‘s lead, who trained tirelessly ahead of last season and went on to enjoy his best ever campaign, bouncing back from his worst one.
Harry Maguire future uncertain
Harry Maguire’s future at Manchester United is unclear. The club won’t push him out, but they will listen to offers.
Romano reports, “Harry still wants to fight for his place at Man United and not give up, waiting to speak with Erik ten Hag about his future.”
If he is sold, Manchester United are open to exploring a deal for Monaco defender Axel Disasi, with Romano reporting Ten Hag has approved a move.
In the even Maguire does stay, United should see an improved defender next season. He’s certainly doing everything he can to raise his game.
