Inter Milan Were Serious About Signing Man Utd Defender Harry Maguire But Erik Ten Hag Blocked His Sale, UK Tabloid Claims
Inter had been serious about trying to sign defender Harry Maguire from Manchester United in the last days of the January transfer window, but the move was blocked by Red Devils coach Erik ten Hag.
This according to UK tabloid The Sun, who report that the 29-year-old was a genuine target for the Nerazzurri but that United coach ten Hag was very reluctant to let go of a player who remains important for defensive depth at Old Trafford.
During the final days of the January window, there looked to have been a very real chance that Inter could agree a deal with Paris Saint-Germain to sell defender Milan Skriniar.
Necessary for a deal for Skriniar to have taken place, however, would have been the Nerazzurri signing a replacement for the Slovakian.
Man United defender Maguire was one of the names linked as Inter conducted their search for a potential replacement for Skriniar.
According to The Sun, the Nerazzurri’s interest was serious, but United coach ten Hag had no intention of allowing the Englishman to be sold.
