바카라사이트 Manchester United have given West Ham United a run for their money for the duo of Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay.
“West Ham have made a £60 million bid for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, but it has been rejected,” said Fabrizio Romano, a journalist specializing in the transfer market. The Hammers will then reopen negotiations to sign the United duo.”
West Ham manager David Moyes has been keen on the United duo all summer, as both players are suited to the ‘defensive football’ Moyes wants to play. Maguire, in particular, is an overwhelming physical presence at 6-foot-4 and nearly 100 pounds.
McTominay is also a physical player, standing at 193 centimeters and 90 kilograms, who likes to get physical in the center of the field. West Ham made a bold bid for both players. United’s response to the bid was ‘no knife’. Bring more money.
The Hammers lost league star Declan Rice to Arsenal this summer. Rice gave the Hammers a beautiful send-off by lifting the European trophy after 47 years. In the process, he earned an astronomical transfer fee of £150 million to his hometown club.
United are well aware of this. Maguire and McTominay are currently valued at £20 million and £25 million respectively on the ‘transfer market’. If West Ham were the buyer, they would be willing to pay more than the current market price.
On Aug. 8 (KST), Paul Hurst, a reporter for the British publication Times Sport, revealed the amount of money United has set aside. “United have put a £35 million ($58.4 million) bid for Maguire and a £40 million ($66.7 million) to £45 million ($75.1 million) bid for McTominay,” Hurst reported.
In order for West Ham to pay United’s asking price, they would have to increase their bid. It would have to be at least £75 million ($125.1 million), rather than the £60 million proposed. United believe that West Ham would be willing to pay this amount.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are now done looking for replacements for both players. Maguire’s replacement is OGC Nice’s Jean-Claude Todibo. McTominay’s replacement is ACF Fiorentina’s Sofiane Amrabat.
