Moyes wont make Old Trafford return for Maguire

Harry Maguire has chosen to make it clear that he did not refuse a move the West Ham because the club wasn’t big enough for him

The Manchester United defender was linked with the Hammers for weeks in the summer with the move finally having believed to break down over the two clubs failing to agree a severance pay issue.

No Maguire switch to Hammers

The player was also determined to show himself able of holding down a regular place in the starting eleven having been used sparingly last season and stripped of the captaincy.

However, things aren’t working out as well as he would probably like given that he still has appeared in just three months.

And it is has been mentioned on the forums that the injury track record of Kurt Zouma – which sees the club in no rush to renew his contract – could lead to David Moyes into returning to Old Trafford this winter or next summer .

However, that is definitely not going to happen as we were told by a major club insider today the club is spent out and certainly couldn’t afford Maguire.

In the meantime, talking at the England press conference,  Maguire said: “Regular game time is really important to me, it has been throughout my career

“The actual opportunity to go to West Ham wasn’t agreed really between both clubs and myself. So it wasn’t just my chance to say ‘Yes and I’m going’.

“It wasn’t agreed between both clubs so the  opportunity wasn’t there because we didn’t get far enough down the line with it.

“But West Ham is a massive club. But like I said my full focus is still on Manchester United, I want to fight for my place but of course regular game time is really important to me.”
