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.

The 30-year-old was stripped of the captaincy at Old Trafford earlier this summer after making only eight Premier League starts last season.

Maguire, who remains the world’s most expensive defender following his £80m move to United from Leicester in the summer of 2019, is keen on a new challenge.

The player is excited by the prospect of playing under David Moyes at the London Stadium as he bids to bank as much first-team football as possible ahead of the European Championships in Germany next year. reports Evening Standard.

And with Euro 2024 coming up at the end of the season, Maguire knows he must be playing regular football to earn his spot in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
