According to a report by 90min, in which they reveal Manchester United’s interest in Declan Rice – including an exchange offer of any of Nemanja Matic, Phil Jones or Jesse Lingard – the West Ham United star is ‘ready’ to ‘make the move’ this summer.
Indeed, as per this report, United are ready to offer any of the trio in exchange for signing Rice and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has long been keen on signing him but pulled out when GSB were requesting £70 million last summer.
Rice ‘ready’ to ‘make the move’
Now, the player’s representatives think a deal could be completed for around £50m – which has also reportedly attracted the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Whilst no clear front runner has emerged yet in the race to sign Rice, according to 90min, the star Hammer is ‘ready’ to ‘make the move’ this summer as this transfer claim emerges.
Rice was heavily linked with Chelsea last year, with their former boss Frank Lampard apparently keen on his signing before he was sacked and replaced by Thomas Tuchel.
Transfer Tavern take
Now, according to 90min, they remain interested along with the joined parties of City and Liverpool but it is United who are willing to offer any of three players in exchange.
Time will tell what could come of this latest report, but David Moyes won’t want to lose his key man.
The Scot only really has the ageing Mark Noble to step in if Rice is absent, so he would be heavily reliant on GSB signing an adequate replacement.
