Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano provides update on Man United duo’s potential transfers to PL rivals

Despite the teams reaching an agreement on a £30 million trade, Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has yet to agree terms with West Ham United.

That’s according to Fabrizio Romano in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, who also provides an update on the Hammers’ interest in Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.

McTominay appears to have a chance of staying at Manchester United, with West Ham showing an interest in the Scotland international but not yet making a move for him.

It’s also possible that Maguire’s move be delayed until United recruits a replacement defender, so things may not be as near as some have assumed.

“For Harry Maguire, the agreement between Manchester United and West Ham is done, and it’s a £30m fee,” Romano stated, discussing the latest on these two United players potentially transferring to the London Stadium.

“Now, negotiations over personal terms with the player will continue; but it’s also important to note that Man United wants to move forward on signing a new center-back before giving the final green light to the Maguire move.” So it’s a domino effect, I’d say, with personal terms and a replacement signing key.

“West Ham have also been linked with Scott McTominay, but they are currently focused on Maguire – they need to agree on personal terms with Maguire, so that is their priority.” McTominay has sparked a lot of interest, but there hasn’t been a new bid yet.

“As I’ve always said, McTominay can stay at Manchester United because Erik ten Hag likes him.”

United had a good summer, bringing in Mason Mount, Andre Onana, and Rasmus Hojlund, but player sales will almost certainly be required to help balance the books.
