Speculation linking Manchester United with the acquisition of the best English defensive midfielder available continues to gather momentum.
Regular visitors to this site will recall that, last week, we covered Manchester United’s potential interest, in Declan Rice, in the following article – united-interested-in-england-midfielder.
Today, that speculation has taken a new twist with 90 mins inferring that the Old Trafford hierarchy could be looking to secure the services of Rice by offering West Ham United a player plus cash deal.
There are no surprises when it comes to which player might be used to tempt the Hammers into parting with the 22-year-old with Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Nemanja Matic all getting honourable mentions.
There is no doubting that Rice would be a superb signing but, for now, I remain unconvinced that the player fancies a move north or that West Ham United are interested in selling the England international.
However, I will endeavour to keep a close eye out for any more transfer tittle-tattle on the subject.
Chelsea v Manchester United?
Chelsea to Win!
Manchester United to Win!
