OMG! Harry Maguire Rejected £278,000-a-week Man City Contract Offer To Join Man Utd

It has been revealed that defender Harry Maguire Snubbed a move to Manchester City in favor of a Manchester United transfer, MySportDab reports.

The 26-year-old moved to Old Trafford in an £80million switch from Leicester last week and signed a six-year contract worth £190,000 a week - £88,000 a week less than City's offer.

MySportDab reports Maguire and his representatives had several meetings with City chiefs and was offered a financial package that would have seen him become the highest-paid defender in the world.

According to the Daily Star, had Maguire accepted City's offer he would've earned £70m over five years and become the world's best paid defender.

Maguire supported United as a child and his allegiance to his boyhood club proved to be enough to sway his decision.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola recently confirmed he was interested in signing Maguire prior to his move to United but claimed he couldn't afford him.

'We were interested in him but we could not afford it and United could afford it,' Guardiola said.

'Maguire is an excellent, top class player, a top class central defender. He has all the qualities to work for United. They are contenders, with the players they bought like Maguire.'

The England international made a flying start to his United careerby putting in a fine debut performance in a 4-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford last Sunday.

Maguire lined up alongside Victor Lindelof at centre back, while fellow new signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka also made his debut in a new-look back four.
