Harry Maguire's move to West Ham is OFF as Man Utd dispute collapses deal

Harry Maguire's transfer from Manchester United to West Ham is now off, according to a new report.

West Ham had agreed a £30 million fee to sign the England international centre-back, before entering into talks over personal terms.

One main issue surrounded the difference in salary that Maguire would earn at the London Stadium compared his current wage at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old had been in talks with United over a potential pay-off, according to reports, that would allow him to join West Ham and end his four-year stay at the club.

Meanwhile, Fabrizio Romano claimed on The United Stand that United would not let Maguire leave until they had entered into advanced talks with a replacement.

However, they will now not be selling Maguire at all - at least for the time being.

Harry Maguire West Ham transfer collapses

According to The Guardian, West Ham have now pulled out of the deal due to 'growing tired of waiting' for the defender to conclude talks with United.

It is reported that, from West Ham's side, personal terms had been agreed with Maguire - leaving only United's side of the transfer to be finalised.

As a result, the report claims that the Hammers could return to the negotiating table at a later date, but the deal is off for now due to the dispute.

It has been alleged that the 30-year-old wanted around £7 million to depart Old Trafford, which would likely have represented some of the difference between his salary at United and West Ham across the length of his contract.

While Maguire remains at the club, however, a search for his replacement could potentially be halted.

United have been linked with moves for Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo and Bayer Leverkusen's Edmund Tapsoba. They have already completed three incoming transfers this summer.
