Harry Maguire asked the entire Manchester United team to donate 30% of their salary to charity.

Manchester United captain Maguire sent a message to all of his teammates suggesting he make a generous commitment to the hospitals in Manchester.

And Mirror Sport understands that players overwhelmingly support the gift because they want to be seen doing their part.

This comes after lengthy discussions between Maguire and executive vice president Ed Woodward about players who donate to charity.

United, one of the richest clubs in the world, does not want players to suffer a drop in wages but is on board with the desire to donate to charity.

It comes after Premier League stars were criticized by Health Minister Matt Hancock for “not doing their part” and a public reaction against the players for not offering a pay cut.

The Professional Football Association released a statement on Thursday evening suggesting that the players would accept postponements but not cuts, while criticizing the clubs for putting staff on leave when they could afford to pay them.

This started the civil war in football, but also annoyed players who behind the scenes made donations but wanted their money to go to charities and the NHS rather than to wealthy Premier League teams.

Many players have already made huge five- and six-digit donations without advertising and Maguire wants United players to get involved and take a stand.

It is understood that many players have donated to charitable heroes to support the NHS and may prepare a collective statement to show their support after criticizing the PFA’s position.
