West Ham has made an offer exceeding £50m for two Manchester United players, namely Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay. The Hammers have been actively pursuing new signings this summer, despite already selling Declan Rice to Arsenal for a potential £105m. They are also engaged in advanced negotiations with Ajax concerning the acquisition of 25-year-old Mexican midfielder Edson Alvarez.
The departure of 24-year-old Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca to Atalanta has added urgency to West Ham’s recruitment drive, especially following their 4-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen. While Manchester United appears open to considering the deal, securing the transfer may hinge on West Ham meeting the required fees and salaries for both Maguire and McTominay. The Red Devils acknowledge that they would need suitable replacements for these players if they were to be sold.
