Manchester United will face Arsenal at the Emirates in a huge Premier League clash next weekend.

The Red Devils bounced back from a disappointing defeat against Tottenham Hotspur with a thrilling 3-2 win at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Forest scored twice within the first four minutes of the game at Old Trafford before goals from Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Bruno Fernandes secured all three points for Erik Ten Hag’s side.

The Manchester outfit have allowed Fred, Anthony Elanga and Alex Telles to leave the club so far this summer, but there could be more outgoings before the transfer window shuts.

United did look like they were going to offload defender Harry Maguire earlier in this window before his move to West Ham United collapsed.

However, it seems that the transfer saga has taken another huge twist.

According to The Sun, West Ham United have re-opened talks with the Red Devils over a deal for defender Harry Maguire.

West Ham remain interested in Maguire, despite failing to agree a deal earlier this summer

The two clubs reportedly agreed a £30m fee earlier in the summer, with the defender agreeing to take a pay cut to join the Hammers, before the transfer talks broke down.

The report claims that the London-based outfit are trying to find a way to reach an agreement in the final week of the window, which could involve paying more for the player.

Maguire, 30, joined the club from Leicester City back in 2018, with his £80 million price making him the world’s most expensive defender.

While his career in Manchester started positively, he has since struggled for form and has now fallen down the pecking order at the club.

Due to a string of lacklustre performances, United have become open to the idea of selling the defender this term as they look to trim Ten Hag’s squad.

It is believed that the two clubs are currently far apart in their valuations of the England international, however the Hammers’ decision to reignite their interest means that a deal could be agreed in the final days of the window.
