Manchester United have rejected a £20 million bid for Harry Maguire from Premier League rivals West Ham.

This is according to transfer expert David Ornstein, who has explained that former Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been subject to interest from David Moyes and West Ham.

It is said that although West Ham has launched a bid for the player, it was knocked back and although they are keen on signing him, it is unlikely that they will continue to pursue their interest as his wages may become an issue.

Maguire currently earns around £200,000 a week under Erik ten Hag – a salary that the London club are unlikely to be able to match. West Ham had previously offered United a loan with an option to buy.

Elsewhere, it is claimed that United midfielder Fred is close to agreeing personal terms with Turkish club Galatasaray.

According to Sky Sports, personal terms on a proposed move for Fred to join Galatasaray are not expected to be an issue – but a gap in valuation on a fee still exists, and Galatasaray are not the only club interested in signing Fred.

If a deal can be struck for Fred to leave the club, it is said that United are ready to move quickly on a replacement.

Sofyan Amrabat is a primary target with talks with Fiorentina ‘continuing in the background’.
