Declan Rice has been linked with Manchester United for a long time and once again, his name is in the lime light.
The West Ham star is one of the best midfielders in the world and he has been backed to finally agree a move to Old Trafford.
Francis McAvennie believes the England international should snub a move to Arsenal and instead opt to join the Red Devils.
The former Scottish footballer stated:
“I think he would be great. He has got a big head to go to Man United and be part of the revolution. I do not know if he would want to go to Arsenal.
“His money is dropping every year now so he has got to go somewhere. He is not hitting the same form as what he has been hitting.“
Rice helped the Hammers earn seventh place in the Premier League last term but this season, he has been highly inconsistent.
West Ham are currently just a point above the relegation zone and their skipper has not been able to improve the performance level. That is why his market value has now dropped to just £70million (The Telegraph).
The 24-year-old is naturally a defensive midfielder. He was a key member of the Three Lions team that reached the finals of the Euro 2020. Moreover, he was an important part of Southgate’s squad that reached the quarter finals at the World Cup in Qatar.
However, in my view, Man Utd do not need another play breaker like Declan Rice having already splashed a lot of cash to lure Casemiro in the summer.
The Brazilian international has transformed Ten Hag’s side and brought back the winning mentality at Old Trafford. He is irreplaceable.
In my view, United need a creative central midfielder, someone who can score and create goals on regular basis. What do you think?
