Manchester United may have accepted it's time to pull the plug on under-fire captain Harry Maguire, with a loan to West Ham reportedly on the table.
  • Maguire lost starting place
  • West Ham need immediate centre-back help
  • Man Utd ready to let Maguire join Hammers

WHAT HAPPENED? West Ham want an experienced centre-back to join in the January transfer window and have identified Maguire as a loan target, according to the Mirror. Man Utd are ready to let Maguire leave for a "considerable loss" on the £80 million ($98m) they spent on him in 2019, the reports states, and they could loan out the defender now before selling him over the summer.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: West Ham are bracing for the exit of Craig Dawson, and Maguire fits their criteria for a potential replacement. The recent emergence of left-back Luke Shaw as a potential fill-in option at centre-back has further eroded Erik ten Hag's need for the England international this season.
