"Maguire is an excellent, top-class player," the Spanish tactician said, according to Sportsmole.

"We were interested, but we could not afford it. United afforded it.

"He's an excellent player, he made an incredible World Cup (in 2018), he's strong in the air, good with the ball in the build-up and he's so fast.

"Congratulations for United for this signing."
