West Ham eyeing deal for Maguire

West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United captain Harry Maguire this summer.

The England international was a fringe player for the Red Devils last term, and made only eight starts in the Premier League.

As a result, there are suggestions that he could be offloaded. United are eyeing at least £30m up front to part ways with him.

Hammers boss David Moyes is an admirer of the 30-year-old, but his current £200,000-a-week wages are a huge stumbling block.

Maguire has two more years remaining on his current salary, and United may need to hand him a huge pay-off to sanction his exit.

Aside from the Englishman, the Hammers also hold an interest in United midfielder Scott McTominay, who could be sold for £40m.

The Red Devils have a pre-sales budget of only £100-120m, and they need to recoup additional funds by selling unwanted players.

McTominay and Maguire could be candidates to head for the exit door.
