Fabrizio Romano identifies two hurdles that could prevent Harry Maguire's West Ham move

Fabrizio Romano identifies two hurdles that could prevent Harry Maguire's West Ham move

He has identified two hurdles.

Fabrizio Romano has revealed two hurdles which could prevent Harry Maguire from joining West Ham.

On Wednesday morning it was reported by multiple outlets that West Ham have reached an agreement worth £30million to sign Manchester United defender Maguire.

The Hammers are seeking reinforcements, having sold Declan Rice for £105million earlier in the window, while Maguire will be hoping to revive his career after a challenging year under Erik ten Hag.

Maguire made just 16 Premier League appearances, including eight starts, last season with Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and left-back Luke Shaw ahead of him in the pecking order.

Furthermore, the United defender was relieved of his duties as captain last month and replaced by Bruno Fernandes.

While a move to West Ham looks likely transfer guru Romano has noted two potential hurdles which could prevent Maguire’s transfer from being finalised.

Romano on Maguire move

Romano tweeted to corroborate news that United had reached an agreement with West Ham for Maguire.

However, the Italian added that Maguire still needed to “verbally” agree to the move, while the structure of the deal was still yet to be finalised.

Romano wrote: “West Ham have reached an agreement in principle with Manchester United for Harry Maguire on £30m fee.

“The verbal agreement is subject to final, key points on deal structure still under discussion but fee now agreed, as per Sky.

“Personal terms, to be discussed soon.”

Sky Sports have claimed personal terms are not expected to be a problem but there is still work to do on the details of the England international's exit from United.

The Hammers however are "cautiously optimistic" about completing the signing having also had a £20million bid for the England international rejected last month.

Reports in France have claimed that United hope to sign Nice centre-back Todibo as a Maguire replacement.

The Premier League giants have allegedly made contact with Nice to gauge demands, and are ready to take swift action should Maguire’s move to West Ham be completed.
