Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is facing uncertainty about his future at the club after periodical criticism. In addition to shared disappointment with the Englishman's performance the past season, the Red Devils' manager Erik ten Hag decided to strip the 30-year-old of captaincy by replacing him with Bruno Fernandes.
It is seen that Maguire is not keen to leave Old Trafford despite his uneasiness with ten Hag's decision. In case suitors come along, the Red Devils are asking for £30million for their center back.
Following are the top 3 clubs who are favourites to sign Maguire this summer.
West Ham boss David Moyes is keen to bring Maguire to his club before the end of the summer transfer window. After the departure of Declan Rice the Hammers' are in need of a new captain and Magurie can be considered in the position, if he makes the move.
West Ham have reportedly made an approach worth £20m for the England international but failed due to not meeting the club's asking price. It will remain to be seen if Moyes' side will make further advancements.
As per Football Insider's report, Everton have become the frontrunners in the competition to secure Maguire's signing. Despite having earned more than £45 million in fees this season and having made acquisitions through loans and free transfers, the club are still bound by Financial Fair Play regulations for the foreseeable future.
Everton are actively seeking a fresh central defender. Yerry Mina and Conor Coady, both of whom were part of the team's crucial victory against Bournemouth at the end of the previous season, are no longer with the club.
Tottenham Hotspur are still being considered as a potential choice, but reports in the last two days have suggested that Spurs are nearing the finalization of an agreement with Wolfsburg's defender Micky van de Ven. In case this deal fails, Maguire's future at North London will be more porbable.
Being resistant to let go of club legend Harry Kane, the Spurs' hierarcy sees Maguire's arrival at the club beneficial to keep their 29-year-old star. Magurie and Kane are close friends in the England national team and have displayed their satisfactory teamwork in international games on several occasions.
