West Ham Set To Reignite Interest in Manchester United’s Defender
West Ham United is reportedly poised to reignite its interest in securing the services of Manchester United’s seasoned defender, Harry Maguire.
Earlier in the current transfer window, the Hammers embarked on a pursuit of the English center-back, albeit an endeavor that ultimately failed to come to fruition.
However, latest reports indicate that negotiations have been rekindled between the East London outfit and Maguire, raising hopes of a potential agreement being reached in the near future.
According to sources close to the situation, an initial understanding was reached between West Ham and Manchester United, establishing a transfer fee in the vicinity of £30 million for the highly-regarded defender. Nevertheless, Maguire’s decision to temporarily defer the move has introduced a new dynamic to the situation, with the player now purportedly requesting a substantial compensation package from his current employers.
On the contractual front, West Ham is believed to have prearranged terms for a four-year engagement with Maguire, encompassing a weekly remuneration of approximately £120,000.
The allure for Maguire lies in the prospect of revitalizing his career trajectory through a fresh chapter at West Ham, offering a platform to reestablish himself as a cornerstone in the starting lineup of a Premier League outfit. Moreover, with the impending European Championships on the horizon, the center-back is undoubtedly motivated to solidify his berth within the England national team setup.
Concurrently, West Ham’s defensive frailties have been a subject of scrutiny, and the addition of Maguire could conceivably furnish a remedy to their rearguard vulnerabilities.
