Barcelona's stunning bid to entice Maguire to the Nou Camp is rejected by Man United.

Manchester United rejected Barcelona's offer to trade for captain Harry Maguire.

United have discussed a £55m cost and bonuses of up to £68m for de Jong.

Barcelona tried to sign Maguire as part of the deal, but Erik ten Hag wants to keep him.
De Jong is ten Hag's top transfer target after working together at Ajax.

De Jong may help United's midfield become more cohesive, according to many.

Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard are all leaving United, therefore they need midfield reinforcements.

Xavi is looking for a new center-back because Gerard Pique is injured and Samuel Umtiti may go. Maguire joins Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia, and Clement Lenglet.

Maguire's willingness to push forward with the ball suited Barcelona's style.
United finished sixth in the Premier League last season under Maguire's watch.

Maguire's reluctance or poor stance often hurt United.

The 29-year-old wants to stay at United and show himself to ten Hag.
Maguire joined United from Leicester for £80million in 2019 after playing for Sheffield United and Hull City.

He's made 144 appearances for United, although his performances are inconsistent.

Maguire remains a key player for United and England, with Gareth Southgate's backing.

Maguire has been capped 46 times by the Three Lions. He could make the World Cup team later this year.
