Manchester City Boss Identifies Replacement For Kompany as De-Ligt is less likely to Join

Belgian star Vincent Kompany announced that he will be leaving Manchester City in this summer transfer window and Pep Guardiola has urged the Premier League champions to snap up a deal for Leicester City center back Harry Maguire.

Kompany joined Manchester City back in 2008 and captained the Citizens to their first ever Premier League title in 2012 after 44 long years. The 33-year-old will now leave the club with a legendary status with four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups.

However, Manchester City is looking to fill in the void for their departing captain and manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly claiming that he wants to sign English defender Harry Maguire in the summer transfer window.

Manchester City once again managed to secure the Premier League title but even with 98 points, Liverpool was hot on their trail ensuring that the title race went right down to the wire. Guardiola is keen on replacing his long-serving stalwart with a similar kind of player in the form of Harry Maguire


Harry Maguire’s performances have also earned him an England callup

The 48-year-old former Barcelona manager was thoroughly impressed with the 26-year-old Maguire when Leicester City visited the Etihad Stadium a few weeks ago. The Englishman has shown his ability on the ball and is also able to get physical therefore a number of top clubs are interested in his signature.

Even Manchester United is keeping close tabs on Maguire’s situation at the King Power Stadium as the Red Devils wanted to lure him to Old Trafford during Jose Mourinho’s tenure. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now at the wheel for the Premier League side and Maguire is still on the top transfer list for Manchester United.

But United’s local neighbors Manchester City have a certain advantage to sign the £75 million-rated defender in the summer after completing their domestic treble. Although Leicester is not willing to lose Maguire, they may succumb to a massive bid.

Author’s Take

Maguire seems like one of the most accomplished defenders in the Premier League and could be the closest player who could fill in the boots for Vincent Kompany at Manchester City.
