Mark Goldbridge fumes at Man Utd after Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay offers rejected

Mark Goldbridge has criticised Manchester United after they reportedly rejected an offer from West Ham for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay.

The Hammers submitted a £60 million bid for the United pair earlier this week but, as per talkSPORT, the offer was turned down.

David Moyes is scrambling to improve his squad ahead of another European campaign for West Ham, with Declan Rice having left for Arsenal earlier in the window.

But attempts to do so have been thwarted so far - and the Hammers have been denied in their attempts to bring in Maguire and McTominay.

According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, West Ham are closer to a compromise on a fee for Maguire than for McTominay, but talks are ongoing between the two clubs.

And Goldbridge insists that both players must leave the club this summer - believing United will not get the opportunity to cash in on them to this extent again.

Goldbridge takes aim at Man Utd over Maguire, McTominay

Speaking on The United Stand, Goldbridge put Maguire and McTominay's offers into the context of the reported asking price that Ten Hag's side have placed on Donny van de Beek.

He explained: "Donny van de Beek is younger than Scott McTominay. I haven't seen McTominay play well since last September.

"When Casemiro came in, McTominay never had a good game again. I don't understand the £30 million value. I don't know where it comes from.

"You can sort of figure out somebody's value, but I don't understand why he's worth £30 million.

"Especially when Donny will go for £15 million. There is no way Donny van de Beek is worth half the price of Scott McTominay. They are both worth around the same, in my opinion.

"If we're rejecting that McTominay bid, it must be because he is not for sale. If West Ham offered me a £30 million cheque for McTominay, I'd grab that cheque and I'd run and hide for a month. Because I know, at some point, they are going to go, 'What have we done?'"

Goldbridge then developed his point into an elaborate analogy: "You know that 30 day cashback thing, when you buy a washing machine and you can send it back? I'd be hidden. I'd be off social media - that would be it."
