Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the Harry Maguire to West Ham United transfer.
I think Maguire will be absolutely perfect for us, so let’s hope that this one gets announced sooner rather than later. But why the hold up?
Fabrizio Romano shares Harry Maguire to West Ham twist as Manchester United hold up deal
Romano has taken to Twitter to explain why the England international is not officially a Hammers player yet.
The Italian football journalist tweeted:
The fact that Man United want to decide on a replacement first is a big blow for West Ham as far as I’m concerned. That could mean that this transfer saga drags on until the end of the window, and we really don’t want that.
Hopefully we get Maguire registered in time for our second Premier League game of the season against Chelsea.
Moyes desperately needs to get reinforcements in, with Declan Rice, Gianluca Scamacca and Manuel Lanzini having already left and numerous others being linked with summer exits.
West Ham signing Harry Maguire for £30 million will be good business in my book. He’ll be a real leader for us and provide a huge threat in the air from set-pieces.
Hopefully there are no bumps along the road and the club announce the signing of the England international asap.
