Manchester United have scheduled a new round of talks with West Ham after rejecting a joint-bid worth around £60m for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay.
West Ham are keen on a double deal for the duo as the London side look to reinvest the funds brought in following Declan Rice’s £105m sale to Arsenal, but have seen their proposal rejected.
West Ham’s bid valued both players at around £30m, but has been turned down. Maguire has been expected to leave the Red Devils this summer after losing his place in the first team last season and several Premier League sides are understood to be interested in the 30-year-old.
The England international made just eight starts in the Premier League last season and has since been replaced by Bruno Fernandes as club captain at Old Trafford.
McTominay also struggled for a regular role following the arrivals of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen at Manchester United last season, while competition has since increased for a midfield role after the capture of Mason Mount from Chelsea.
Fabrizio Romano is reporting that a ‘new round of talks’ has been scheduled between the two clubs, in a bid to reach an agreement on a deal.
West Ham have failed to make a signing so far this summer, but have been active in terms of outgoings with Gianluca Scamacca and Manuel Lanzini among those to have departed the London Stadium.
The Hammers have reached an agreement to sign Ajax midfielder Edson Alvarez in a deal worth £35m, with the Mexican set to undergo a medical this week.
