With legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson’s opinion still very much valued at Manchester United, the Scotsman has reportedly identified who he believes the Red Devils should sign in this transfer window.
According to Metro, the former United manager was shocked to find out that an offer from the club for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire had not been made before last week.
The report claims Ferguson is a massive admirer of the centre-back, who he has reportedly admiring since his earlier days at Sheffield United.
The same story goes on to say that the Scotsman has even been in touch with the 26-year-old, offering him guidance and advice over the phone from time to time.
United have been strongly linked with the England international, but could face a bidding war with champions Manchester City.
Reports suggest Maguire is valued at around £80 million (R1.4 billion) by the Foxes.
