West Ham AGREE £30m transfer fee with Man Utd for Harry Maguire as England star to end Old Trafford hell | The Sun

WEST HAM have agreed a £30million transfer fee for Harry Maguire.

The Hammers have chased the England defender all summer after Maguire was stripped of the Manchester United captaincy.

He has been deemed surplus to requirements by Old Trafford boss Erik ten Hag.

Chelsea and Tottenham have been linked with Maguire but West Ham were always frontrunners for the centre-half.

And according to Sky Sports, they have an agreement in principle with United in a deal worth in the region of £30m.

It is added that personal terms will not be an issue despite Maguire's reported wages of around £190,000 per week.

As revealed by SunSport, David Moyes was left confident Maguire wanted a move to the London Stadium.

Monday night saw West Ham make a huge move in the transfer market, submitting a joint £60m bid for Maguire, 30, and Scott McTominay, 26.

The £30m offer for McTominay was rejected out of hand, with United demanding £45m.

But they were considering the £30m bid for Maguire, which is near their valuation of £35m.

SunSport understands that Maguire has spoken with Moyes on several occasions over the phone in the past few days.

Moyes – who is still looking to make his first signing of the summer – has been selling the idea of West Ham to Maguire, who he views as a future captain of the club.

The defender is desperate for regular first team football ahead of next summer’s Euros with England, and would get that at West Ham having fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

A wage rise for Maguire was activated at the end of last season following United’s top four finish, seeing him earn close to £200k-a-week.

West Ham would not be expected to pay that in full, with United potentially bridging the gap due to the amount still owed to him on his contract that still has two years left, with the option of a further year.

The Hammers have also seen City express an interest in Lucas Paqueta.
