Harry Maguire sets sights on winning the PL with Manchester United
According to Sky Sports (h/t Leicester Mercury), Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has set his sights on bringing the Premier League title back to Old Trafford.
The summer signing believes that getting to the top four should not be the limit to the club’s ambitions.
“We don’t want to be challenging for this Champions League spot, we want to be challenging for titles.”
The Red Devils have not won the title since the departure of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. In the six seasons since, we have also finished in the Champions League spots just twice.
That tally could improve this season, provided football resumes. United are just three points off 4th-placed Chelsea after a fine string of results. The January signings have worked a charm and have led from the front as we climbed up the table.
However, it does not take away the fact that United are a massive 37 points behind runaway leaders, Liverpool. Significantly for Maguire, we are also 8 points behind Leicester City, the side he joined us from.
In spite of the difference, Maguire is satisfied with the progress the club has made under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He hopes it will keep improving, ultimately leading us to trophies.
“We can probably see where we want to go, where we want to head”
He was assured by Solskjaer upon arrival that the club are in the midst of rebuilding and will eventually get to where they want to be.

Maguire’s comments aren’t without careful consideration of the reality of the situation. He believes the club still have ways to go before they can get to where they want to be.
However, the club is on the right track and it will be a matter of when and not if we will get back to our perch.
