Man United Rebuff Inter Milan’s Inquiries About Harry Maguire As Last-Minute Skriniar Replacement, UK Tabloid Claims
Inter have had an inquiry about signing Manchester United defender Harry Maguire on loan to replace Milan Skriniar until the end of the summer.
This according to UK tabloid the Daily Mail, who report that the Nerazzurri have contacted the Red Devils about the former Leicester City and Hull City defender, but that both the club and the player have shown little interest in the deal.
Inter are looking for a possible replacement for Skriniar in the event that they decide to accept an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for the Slovakian before the transfer deadline tomorrow.
The Nerazzurri have already inquired about Man United defender Victor Lindelof, but according to the Daily Mail, the Swede is not the only player who the Nerazzurri have asked about.
Maguire is a player whose future at Old Trafford looks to be very uncertain, as the Daily Mail note that this season the 29-year-old has fallen behind the first-choice defensive pairing of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the pecking order.
However, the tabloid claims, the player is interested in assessing his options for the summer rather than seeking an immediate move away from Old Trafford.
Moreover, the Premier League giants have shown little openness to loaning Maguire for the rest of the season, as the Englishman is still considered to be an important and reliable option for defensive depth by coach Erik ten hag.
