West Ham would unable to match the same wages that Harry Maguire earns at Manchester United and he is also not keen at joining the Hammers 6foot2 understands from sources close to the club.
The 30 year old does not play in a position that is a priority position this summer, with Zouma and Ageurd first choice centre backs and all these factors make a summer move unlikely.
Reports have suggested that a loan move has been turned down by Manchester United but David Moyes is on record that he is not a fan of loans which is another factor which doesn’t add up.
The only way a loan would be acceptable is if Manchester United subsidies a large proportion of weekly £180,000 per week salary but that seems unlikely too.
Manchester United are understood to have valued Maguire at £50million as a starting price, a figure that is highly unlikely to be offered by any club.
Maguire joined Manchester United for £80m in 2019 – a world-record fee for a defender – but he lost his place only two games into last season.
Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw are all ahead of Maguire in the central defensive pecking order.
He started only 16 games for Manchester United last season and half were in cup games.
A few days ago, Maguire admitted he was £extremely disappointed” at being stripped of his Manchester United captaincy.
