West Ham edge closer to agreeing fee with Manchester United for Harry Maguire transfer

Harry Maguire’s time at Manchester United is nearing an end with West Ham United’s concrete interest in signing the defender.

They tabled a £30 million bid yesterday and are close to reaching a ‘compromise’ with Man United for the sale of Maguire, according to Dharmesh Sheth.

The Hammers offered another £30m to sign Scott McTominay but the Red Devils rejected their proposal. They could come back for the Scotland international.

Maguire has indicated he is keen to join the Hammers. He wants to play regularly to seal his spot in the England team for the 2024 European Championships.

Harry Maguire’s sale to West Ham looks possible

The 30-year-old lost his starting place in the first team last season after United’s terrible start to the Premier League campaign.

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez subsequently formed a robust partnership at the back.

When Varane and Martinez got injured at the tail-end of the previous campaign, Erik ten Hag deployed Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw in the heart of the defence.

Regular injuries and poor form never allowed Maguire to return to the team as the first choice.

Ten Hag took another massive decision last month, stripping Maguire of the club captaincy.

The England international was at fault in the pre-season game against Athletic Bilbao. He gave away the ball cheaply, which allowed the Spanish side to score.

The incident drew frustration, and he was booed by a portion of United fans.

It is time for him to leave Old Trafford for the sake of his own career. 

He is not as bad as he has looked over the last two seasons, and a move to West Ham may revive his fortunes.
