How Maguire snubbed £278.000 a-week Man City offer to join Man Utd

Harry Maguire turned down a £278.000 a-week contract offer from Manchester City for a move to their rival Manchester United. According to Starsport, Maguire and his representative had several meeting with City chiefs and was offered a financial package that would have seen him become the highest-paid defender in the world. However, Maguire put pen-to-paper on a six-year deal at Old Trafford that will see him take home £190,000 a week - a move that saw him usurp Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk as the world's most expensive defender. Guardiola also admitted that they were keen on signing Maguire but failed to do so. "He's an excellent, top-class player," said the Spanish coach. "We were interested but could not afford it."
