Former Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was on the verge of leaving Old Trafford for West Ham last season. It was reported last season that the 2 clubs had agreed on a £30 million deal last season before it fell through in the final stages.

A recent report from Daily Express, claims that the Red Devils are trying to work out a potential deal that would see Maguire leave the club and Brazilian wizard Lucas Paqueta coming their way.

West Ham United will be in the market for a centre back come the summer, and a player of Maguire’s quality would be heaven sent for Moyes and his side.

Paqueta may be amenable to a move away from London Stadium, as he had already agreed a move to Manchester City last season.

A player swap package along with some cash would be tempting to West Ham according to Man United hierarchy, and they feel they will be the winners of that potential deal.

The Brazilian has consistently performed for West Ham United since he arrived in 2022.

Paqueta is a household name in the Brazilian National Team, appearing 49 times since his debut in 2018.

After losing Declan Rice to Arsenal last summer, West Ham fans will be desperate to keep hold of arguably their best player.

It is well documented that West Ham boss David Moyes is a huge fan of Maguire, and it is not far-fetched he will make another move for the big centre back.

The 31-year-old has had a decent upturn in form this season, making 24 appearances for his club, scoring two goals.

United have the option to extend this contract but are likely to offload him, providing funds for a summer of signings.

A player-plus-cash deal may suit both parties this summer, although Man City may be a major obstacle in the deal as Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of Paqueta, and he may try to finally nab him for good.
