And even more intriguing for United fans will be the fact both Coady and Maguire have history of playing together – and well.
Sheffield United brought Coady in on loan when he was still a Liverpool player back in 2013 to partner Maguire in defence.
They played nearly game alongside each other as Sheffield United finished with the third-best defensive record in League One that season.
Both players would go on take different paths before joining up once again at England.
But United’s need for a new central defender is clear and Coady could be the perfect solution.
