Reporter Paul Brown has provided exciting insights into the future of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice following recent rumours of a move to Manchester United. Teddy Sheringham believes Manchester United should consider signing Declan Rice from West Ham as the England international will be new news for Paul Pogba. West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is a player of interest for Manchester United and was previously listed as a top summer transfer target last September.
Chelsea cannot spend money on new players as their owner Roman Abramovich is under UK government sanctions. At the same time, Manchester United have identified Declan Rice as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba, whose contract is expiring at Old Trafford in the summer. Manchester United are ready to let go of Paul Pogba by adding a star like Rice to their squad. However, since Chelsea are also interested in his services, we may see an exciting saga. Many top clubs will be chasing him this summer, including Chelsea, who are said to have long been interested in Rice.
However, according to insider Dean Jones, if Chelsea ultimately decides to make a move in Declan Rice’s favour, Chelsea believe they will win the race to sign him. West Ham gave Rice an astonishing 100 million shillings, which could help David Moyes rebuild the team in the summer. With the future of Manchester United‘s Paul Pogba in limbo, the Red Devils could have identified West Ham star Declan Rice as their top priority this summer. However, they could have demanded £100m to obtain a British general. According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United may have transfer support from the unlikely source of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel in their search for West Ham star Declan Rice.
Declan Rice’s long-term target would love to see how interested Chelsea has. Manchester United and Manchester City are currently in a better position than Chelsea to sign Declan Rice from West Ham in this summer’s transfer window, according to The Telegraph. Paul Merson has urged West Ham midfielder Declan Rice to make a move in the upcoming summer transfer window, citing the clubs as mentioned above as possible destinations depending on several factors. Almost all the British newspapers report that Chelsea is ready to break their transfer record to sign an England international.
Manchester Evening News reports that Manchester United is already planning to sign a new midfielder. Champions League qualification is the bare minimum the Red Devils need to achieve even to start convincing the former Juventus star to sign. Meanwhile, manager Mauricio Pochettino could go the other way and join Manchester United. Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly one of the leading candidates to replace the Argentine if he does leave Parisians at the end of the season.
