Harry Maguire: Updated Player History, Teams, and Trophies
Harry Maguire History and Highlights
The most expensive defender in football’s history, Harry Maguire looked to be worth his weight in gold when he completed his £80m transfer from Leicester City to Manchester United. However, while things went well initially as he led his club and country, things have declined in recent years.
Fans of both clubs and country hope that he can rediscover the form of old soon to push his sides forward.

Born in Sheffield, Harry Maguire’s footballing talent was clear from an early age when Sheffield United took him in at just seven years old.
He stayed at the club’s academy for almost a decade and primarily played in central midfield. His time in the center of the park is cited as a key reason that his ball-playing abilities make him such a highly regarded center-back today.
He first broke into Sheffield United’s first team when the team was struggling to survive in the Championship. Although Maguire made an instant impact – winning Man of the Match in his first appearance, as a sub no less – it wasn’t enough to stop the club from getting relegated to League One.
Maguire shone in League One, and soon clubs further up the league pyramid came knocking and, in 2014, it was Hull who won the race when Maguire accepted their £2.5 million bid.
Time at Hull
He initially struggled to break into the first team in Humberside and was loaned out to Wigan Athletic for the second half of the 2014-15 season. However, by 2016-17 he was a key player for Hull, winning the Player of the Year award as the club was relegated from the Premier League.
It was clear by now, however, that Harry Maguire was too good to be playing in the Championship, and so Leicester came in with a £12 million bid. His price tag was more than justified as he again won his club’s Player of the Season award without missing a single minute of league football.
Moving to Manchester
Although Leicester had won the Premier League more recently than Manchester United, a move to the Red Devils was still seen as a step up for the aerially dominant center-back. Despite his clear talent, the £80m that it cost to lure him away from Leicester in 2019 was a staggering amount.
Yet this pressure didn’t seem to affect him initially, as he became the club captain after 6 months and a number of commanding performances. It appeared initially that Maguire would be a key figure in United’s re-emergence at the top of English football, but things all started to go downhill in 2020 for both player and club.
The England defender was routinely picked out for criticism as the team limped to a 6th placed finish under Ralf Rangnick, and he now appears to be out of favor completely with new manager Erik Ten Hag.
Yet his form for England has always been impressive, winning a spot in the 2020 European Championships team of the tournament and solidifying himself as one of manager Gareth Southgate’s key players. England fans hope he can leave Manchester United’s form behind if he is to play a part in the 2022 World Cup campaign.
