Barcelona are attempting to acquire Harry Maguire from Manchester United as part of the Frenkie de Jong trade, according to the UK Sun.
De Jong’s future is still up in the air between Barcelona and United, with Erik ten Hag designating the midfielder as his top summer transfer target.
Barca, however, has requested that Maguire be included in the agreement.
United, however, turned down the club’s request, and the two parties are now close to settling on a £69 million straight cash deal.
Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are among the defenders who have been given permission to leave Old Trafford this summer.
Ten Hag, however, is adamant that Maguire stay.
After only six months at the club, Maguire, who cost United £80 million in 2019, was named captain.
