According to a report by the Manchester Evening News, West Ham United star Declan Rice is allegedly ‘interested in joining Man United’ and has even asked Red Devils players about the club – coming as a possible worry for the Irons.
West Ham dealt possible Rice worry
Rice has arguably been David Moyes’ most crucial asset this season – whilst earning plenty of praise – and continues to attract attention from many large clubs across the Premier League.
Indeed, alongside United, reports have suggested that Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City hold a firm interest (90min) – with the MEN now providing an update.
They claim that the 22-year-old is ‘interested in joining Man United‘ and has even asked Red Devils players about the Old Trafford club whilst on his last international tour with England.
It is understood by MEN that Rice spoke ‘specifically’ to Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw about ‘aspects’ of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side – coming as a possible worry for Moyes and West Ham as they aim to keep hold of their star player.
Transfer Tavern take
This claim that the Irons fan favourite is open to a move away from east London, while concerning, should be alleviated by the fact West Ham could demand a huge price tag.
It is said that GSB value him at upwards of £100 million, making any club talks difficult in these circumstances, with the only caveat possibly being if Rice elects to force an exit through request.
That could depend on whether West Ham manage to seal an unprecedented European finish this season, and if so, it could put them in a very strong position.
