Manchester United have been tracking Declan Rice for a very long time and the good news is that the midfielder is interested in joining the Red Devils as well.
According to MEN, the West Ham star is interested in agreeing a move to Man Utd and he has already talked with skipper Harry Maguire and left back Luke Shaw about the aspects of the Old Trafford club.
The well-known news source have claimed that the 20-time English champions have tracked the England international for over 2 years and they are looking to finally sign him when the next transfer market opens.
Last week, The Athletic revealed that Man Utd are looking at the option of sending Lingard to the Hammers on permanent basis in order to sign Rice.
I do think Manchester United lack a specialist defensive midfielder in their squad and they need someone who can break things in the center of the park in front of the backline.
Reigning champions Liverpool have a world class DM in the form of Fabinho, runaway leaders this term, Manchester City, broke the bank to lure Rodri and Chelsea have a proven quality play breaker in the form of N’Golo Kante.
On the other hand, Man Utd have a veteran holding midfield player in the form of Nemanja Matic. The Serbian will turn 33 in August, he is past his best and has only started 10 games in the Premier League this season. Not sure why his contract was extended if Ole had to keep him on the bench more often than not.
22-year-old Rice could be the long term replacement but he is going to cost a lot. West Ham could ask for a huge price of £70million to sell the young midfielder (ESPN). In your opinion, should Solskjaer splash the cash to finally sign him?
