The latest on Cucurella to Man Utd and Maguire’s future

Things are progressing for Manchester United and Marc Cucurella. They have an agreement in principle on personal terms with the player. He’s given them the green light and so now they will focus on reaching an agreement with Chelsea as soon as possible, and won’t negotiate for other left-backs.

At Man United they believe that Cucurella is a perfect opportunity. He’s a proven player, excellent in his position. Of course, he wasn’t lucky on his first season at Chelsea but what he did at Brighton and Getafe can’t be forgotten. So they believe this is good opportunity on loan deal. Cucurella has always been super professional even when he wasn’t playing, but Man United is big opportunity and so he already gave his green light.

Next let’s discuss Harry Maguire because there are important updates on this story. Yesterday morning, West Ham communicated to Manchester United that they are leaving the Race for Harry Maguire. Almost 10-12 days ago, West Ham had an agreement with Man United on a £30m deal for Maguire, but the deal collapsed because there was no agreement between United and the player on how to terminate the contract and to join West Ham.
