West Ham United and Harry Maguire agree After Accepting United Bid

Harry Maguire

Jacob Steinberg, a journalist from The Guardian, has reported that West Ham has reached an agreement on personal terms with Harry Maguire after Manchester United accepted their bid. However, the deal is currently facing a delay. This information was shared by Steinberg on his personal Twitter account on August 14th.

“West Ham has successfully negotiated personal terms with Harry Maguire; the delay pertains to his compensation settlement from Manchester United,” Steinberg’s tweet stated. This situation is reassuring.

Certain members of the fan base have expressed apprehension that the lack of progress in this deal. Following the acceptance of the bid, could be attribution to the negotiations surrounding Maguire’s salary.

His existing earnings at Old Trafford are substantial. But it’s clear that we wouldn’t have the capacity or inclination to match those figures for his potential move to our club. This discrepancy in salary could have easily jeopardized the entire deal.

Nonetheless, it’s evident that Maguire is motivated to make the transfer in pursuit of more consistent playing time. And we have successfully come to terms with him. Therefore, the only factor causing the delay in the deal is beyond our sphere of influence or control.

It’s frustrating, particularly when we observe that both Ward-Prowse and Maguire had their agreements reached almost simultaneously. Yet, Ward-Prowse has already been in announcement as a new addition to our squad. Whereas Maguire hasn’t even undergone a medical examination at this stage.

Fortunately, fans can now find solace in the understanding that the hold-up does not stem from our end. We can optimistically hope that the deal will be at some point within this week. Ideally before our encounter with Chelsea over the weekend.

Shifting to other West Ham news, discussions have commenced regarding a potential replacement for Paqueta. With a player expressing willingness to move, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.
