Ex-Hammers star admits he wants to see £80M star get signed by West Ham
Frank McAvennie would like to see Harry Maguire at WEST HAM if he leaves Man United at the end of the current season.
The England international starred at the World Cup for the Three Lions, but Luke Shaw has started over him at centre-back in Man United’s first two league games since the mid-season break.
There had been some speculation in the media that Chelsea are plotting a shock move for the Englishman this transfer window as they seek to cover their defensive issues and add another defender to the squad.
But it was the Hammers that seemingly made the first move to try and get a deal done, according to recent reports on the Daily Mail. who claimed that the West Ham board contacted Man United over a possible loan deal for Maguire.

And amid all the speculation – McAvennie has claimed he would be happy to see Maguire at the London Stadium.
“I would not mind him at West Ham,” he told Football Insider.
“His England performances have been decent but his Man United performances have been awful. We could do with a centre-half as well.
“There will not be a shortage of clubs that want him and they will get him for £30/£40m.”
Maguire is a real leader – he is a solid defender that never really does anything wrong in a game – he is just done at Man United. He should have left the Red Devils in the January window.
West Ham wanted him but Man United wanted him to stay – so come the summer window – we believe that it will be the best time for him to leave and to be honest – West Ham would be a very good option for the Englishman.
There will be other clubs that are interested in Maguire – but his leadership is perfect for that Hammers back-line – he is a proven top-level player
