Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton is optimistic that Harry Maguire will be a shrewd signing for the club.

Reflecting on Maguire’s transfer, Sutton said:

“All things being equal, Harry Maguire is a sensational signing. All this comparison with Van Dijk, who really cares about that?

“Did they pay over the odds? I don’t think they did. They paid £80 million for England’s best centre-back and he will have a huge influence at United.

“I think that had they lost against Chelsea it would’ve been the old ‘it’s a catastrophe’ and ‘get rid of Solskjaer’. It couldn’t have been a better start for United.”
