Harry Maguire is close to exiting Manchester United as West Ham have reportedly reached an agreement in principle to sign him for £30 million.
West Ham had a £20m ($25.5m) offer for United centre-back Maguire rejected earlier in the window, whilst also having a £30m ($38.2m) bid for his team-mate Scott McTominay knocked back.
After submitting an improved £30m proposal for the 30-year-old defender, Sky Sports reporter, Dharmesh Sheth, has claimed an agreement in principle has been struck between the two teams.
However, the future of Maguire, who signed for United from Leicester City in 2019 for a world-record £80m ($101.9m), appears to be away from Old Trafford.
While he has previously said he was eager to stay and fight for his spot at Erik ten Hag’s team, the England international could now be heading for a new challenge at West Ham.
Maguire, who was replaced as the club’s captain by Bruno Fernandes, is currently behind Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane in the defensive pecking order at United.
However, the former Foxes centre-back, who is out of contract at United in 2025, was also at fault for Athletic Club’s goal in their last pre-season match on Sunday.
