Down in the heart of the capital, things are not going as smoothly as West Ham United would have hoped for this season, after a massive summer transfer window expenditure.
The Hammers have gotten off to a poor start and are flirting with the relegation zone.
However, they’re also in danger of losing one of the hottest young talents that has come through their youth system.
Declan Rice, just 19-years-of-age, has already made a place in the starting eleven his own but has yet to agree to a new contract with the West Ham United hierarchy.
To that effect, the news source, the Daily Star, is reporting that Manchester United are set to make serious overtures to bring the youngster to Old Trafford.
If it were to succeed, it would be an audacious move with Rice tipped to have a huge future in the game.
Already, he had proved that he is just as effective at playing as a central defender as well as the holding midfielder and is also becoming embroiled in a tug-of-war at international level with Gareth Southgate looking to lure him to the England set-up after the youngster has already played for the Republic of Ireland in non-competitive games.
Transfer windows come and go, transfer speculation is always rife, but I’d just love it, as Kevin Keegan once uttered, if Manchester United could seal this deal.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed, how about you?
