Irons tipped to make shock Man Utd swoop

West Ham have been tipped to make a move to sign Harry Maguire from Manchester United in the January transfer window.

The England international played well for his country at the World Cup but he has struggled for minutes at Old Trafford under manager Erik Ten Hag.

Maguire has made just three starts in the Premier League and was again on the bench when United faced Wolves this weekend.

And former Hammers coach Stuart Pearce believes that the Hammers should be considering a swoop to sign the 29-year-old.

He has also namechecked Aston Villa and Newcastle United, and believes that Maguire would be an excellent signing for the three clubs.

Speakingto talkSPORT, Pearce said: “If I was West Ham, if I was Newcastle, if I was Aston Villa, I’d be all over trying to get Harry Maguire out of there.

“I’d be asking the question whether he’s available. He’d be a brilliant addition to a football club.

“He’s the right age, the right stature, right experience. He might just need another challenge now as he’s not getting regular football.”

Maguire has won 53 caps for England and was again impressive at the World Cup as the Three Lions reached the quarter-finals, only to be beaten by eventual runners-up France, who were beaten by Argentina in the final.

  1. Yes, Harry Maguire would be good for the Hammers. He’d be guaranteed regular games too. Maybe we could get a package deal including Aaron Wan-Bisake.

  2. Yes please, you can’t have too may good players and our age-profile is getting a bit too elderly! 🙄

  3. If we sign Maguire my season ticket gets ripped up & I will never watch them again……fans are constantly moaning about the mistakes Kehrer makes so why would you want to sign an even bigger liability…..?

  4. Are you serious?
    Is this an early April fool prank?
    The guy cannot get a start at Moan Utd despite being their captain. He’s hanging on to his England place by his finger nails. We need to improve our team not have ten other players mopping up his defensive mistakes. We must have a 12 year old in the junior set up that would start over Maguire. I’ve heard Tony Adams wants to make a comeback I’d have him many times over than buy this clown!
