As The Sun report, Maguire is understood to have been given 72 hours to leave Manchester United for good.
Were he not to comply, a ‘maniac’ claimed that he would be detonating three explosive devices in his home, which were already planted.
Needless to say, Maguire is not staying at home at current, with the England international at a ‘safehouse’ as he waits for the police to look into the threats.
We have been vocal critics of Maguire, just like every other football fan over the last six-to-twelve months, but this really does leave a sour taste in the mouth.
Our thoughts are with him, we wish him strength and we hope that the maniac in question is detained so Harry can regain his peace of mind.
