Erik ten Hag relieved the England international of the captaincy, and the Red Devils appear anxious to offload him this summer.
West Ham United is one of the Premier League clubs interested in Maguire. They recently made a loan offer for the defender, but it was turned down.
Man United will only sell Maguire on a permanent basis. However, his weekly salary of £190,000 is a significant barrier for any possible bidders.
According to recent sources, Maguire has demanded that the remainder of his Manchester United contract, which runs until 2025, be paid off if the club wants to get rid of him this summer.
It’s unclear whether the Red Devils will agree to that. Meanwhile, West Ham, Aston Villa, and Tottenham have all made preliminary inquiries about the 30-year-old.
However, Savage believes he would be a better fit for the Hammers than any other Premier League team.
“I have seen that (links with West Ham), he should go [there] and play,” Savage stated on BBC Radio Five Live.
“West Ham will compete in the Europa League next season.” He would be an excellent addition to West Ham.”
Maguire was a prominent player for Manchester United in the past, but his playing time has decreased since the additions of Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.
Last season, the center-back made only 16 Premier League appearances, eight of which were starts.
With that in mind, a transfer to West Ham could be the best thing for Maguire in terms of resuming his career.
The question is whether he would be able to break into David Moyes’ starting XI.
Since his arrival at the London Stadium in 2021, Kurt Zouma has been Moyes’ go-to guy. His customary partner, Nayef Aguerd, also put in some strong performances at the conclusion of the season. He did, however, suffer from injuries at times.
Given this, it would be surprising if the Hammers sanctioned a big-money deal for Maguire. Especially since there is no certainty that he would be selected for the team.
Man United may have to pay off Maguire’s contract in order to loan the defender to West Ham, as they appear unwilling to allow him to go on loan.
