Inter Milan make move to sign Maguire from Man Utd before transfer deadline

Inter Milan have enquired about a loan move for Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire.

The United captain has started just two league matches since being dropped by Erik ten Hag in August with Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez the manager’s first-choice pairing.

Inter meanwhile are set to lose their own captain Milan Skriniar, who has already confirmed he has a pre-contract agreement in place with PSG.

PSG are hopeful of agreeing a deal to bring the central defender to the French capital this month, with Inter Milan now looking at possible replacements.

The Nerazzurri have enquired into Victor Lindelof’s availability, with the Red Devils rejecting their request with Erik ten Hag keen to keep hold of the Swede.

Inter have now turned to his teammate Maguire, according to the Daily Mail. They are likely to receive the same response from United however with ten Hag eager to keep the team together with the club still battling on four fronts.

Maguire was back in the starting lineup in Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round victory against Reading and could keep his spot when they welcome Nottingham Forest for the second round of their Carabao Cup semi-final with a 3-0 lead already in the bag.

The report adds the England star is prepared to be patient and wait for chances this campaign with United also hopeful of ending their five-year wait for silverware.

But Maguire will still assess his options in the summer should his situation not change at Old Trafford.

‘I’m a player, 29-years-old, and I haven’t really been in this position in my career so it’s a position that I don’t want to get used to,’ Maguire said of his reduced role in the side, speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 win over Reading.

‘But it’s part of the parcel of football. ‘I’m working hard everyday, I’m pushing, I’m training well, and when my chance comes I need to take it.

‘We know at this club we need competition for places, we have some top centre-backs at this club so I think we’re all in good from now until the end of the season.’
