Man City fans take to Twitter to call for De Ligt amid Maguire reports

Man City fans take to Twitter to call for De Ligt amid Maguire reports - Leicester

Man City fans know that a new defender is coming in this summer seeing as Vincent Kompany is leaving the club after 11 years. Reports from The Daily Mail have claimed that Harry Maguire is one of those being looked at as his long-term replacement, but the Citizens have been quick to call for another defender, Matthijs De Ligt.

De Ligt (linked with the Premier League champions by Mirror Sport via Bleacher Report at the start of the month) is the dream for fans of all top clubs. At the age of just 19-years-old, he has already proven himself to be one of the best defenders in the world, and wherever he ends up you just know that success will follow him. On the other hand, Maguire is made to look quite silly by the talented Dutchman, even though he is a classy operator and a top centre-back in his own right.

The two of them will be going head-to-head in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals in a matter of weeks, but the real battle between De Ligt and Maguire on a personal level is the potential move to Manchester City. The chances (per Sky Sports) are that De Ligt will follow his Ajax teammate and countryman, Frenkie De Jong, to Barcelona, but the Man City fans are desperate to turn his head and ditch the Maguire rumours.

The Citizens would much rather see De Ligt come in than Maguire, and who can blame them? But should the Dutchman snub them, the Leicester man is a suitable second choice.
