West Ham eyeing three Manchester United players
West Ham manager David Moyes is already eyeing moves for Manchester United trio Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay this summer, Football Insider report.
The Lowdown: Supporter unrest
The Hammers fell to a 4-0 Premier League defeat at Brighton on Saturday afternoon, with Moyes coming in for criticism from the away end as the club’s battle to avoid the drop continued.
Some who travelled chanted ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’ and ‘you’re getting sacked in the morning’ at Moyes during the game, however, the board are still behind the Scot and are seemingly planning for the summer window.
The Latest: Transfer update
FI reporter Pete O’Rourke shared a story in the last 48 hours regarding West Ham’s transfer plans.
He said that Moyes is a big admirer of the Manchester United trio and they have been shortlisted as potential targets, with the Hammers keeping tabs on their situation at Old Trafford.
The Verdict: Big money
The club have massively backed Moyes this season with a total spend of €194m (£171m), as per Transfermarkt, but haven’t got the results to show for it, and moves for Maguire, Martial and McTominay could also come at a cost.
All three haven’t been regulars under Erik ten Hag during the current campaign, however, they are on a combined salary of £500,000-a-week, as per Spotrac.
Maguire and Martial are actually on more money than any Hammers player, so bringing them to the London Stadium would be another strong backing for the 59-year-old, so could be ones to watch, providing Moyes remains in the dugout for the rest of the season.
