The captain has dropped from the starting XI following the arrivals of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. In instances where both players were injured, ten Hag preferred to use Luke Shaw, a left-back, instead of Maguire.

Goal has reported the club is prepared to pay him close to 10 million Euros to leave and free up his huge wage bill.

Maguire signed a seven-year contract when he joined from Leicester City in 2019, and is believed to earn around 190,000 euros per week.

He has in the past been linked with possible moves to West Ham and Aston Villa. The 30-year-old has made 31 appearances in all competitions this season, according to Transfermarket.

Move for Kim-Min Jae

This comes at a time when Manchester Evening News reported that the Red Devils continue to be linked with a move for Napoli defender, Kim-Min Jae.

The South Korean has had a standout season with the Partenopei, where he starred in their journey to the Serie A title.

Maguire is unlikely to be used when United line up against their cross-town rivals, Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, June 3.

Maguire intends to stay

Sports Brief has also reported that Maguire has spoken about his frustrations at the club ahead of the summer transfer window.

He has been widely linked with a possible Old Trafford exit this summer owing to his struggles this season under coach ten Hag.

Reflecting on the season that has been, Maguire hinted at continuing with Man United next season despite limited game time.
