Manchester United turn down £20m Harry Maguire offer from West Ham

Manchester United have rejected a £20m bid from West Ham for Harry Maguire. They are open to selling the defender but only at a higher price and previously rejected an attempt by West Ham to take Maguire on loan.

Maguire was stripped of the captaincy by Erik ten Hag just under a fortnight ago and knows he needs regular starts to retain his place in the England squad. He started only eight Premier League games last season.

United have improved their offer for the Atalanta striker Rasmus Højlund to more than €60m (£51.4m). Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on Højlund but the Denmark international wants to join United, who are aiming to close a deal as quickly as possible to focus on other positions.

They have signed the goalkeeper André Onana and midfielder Mason Mount and would have a defensive midfielder among their other targets.
