Manchester United to step up pursuit of Decla Rice

Manchester United is reportedly preparing to step up their search for Declan Rice, with the West Ham United midfielder identified as a prime transfer target for the club.

The Red Devils did not sign a new central midfielder in January despite a great deal of speculation, but will reportedly prioritize improving in that area of ​​the pitch before the 2022-23 campaign.

Rice’s performances for West Ham this season have led to a great deal of speculation, with Manchester City and Chelsea both believed to be interested in signing the England international this summer.

According to ESPN, the Hammers want more than £100m for the 23-year-old, who recently hinted that he wants to stay in London long-term.

However, the report claims that Man United will turn their attention to signing a new midfielder this summer and see Rice as a prime target.

Recruitment meetings are supposed to take place every month with caretaker head coach Ralf Rangnick, who is expected to have a say in the innings when he takes up a consulting role at the club this summer.

Rice, who has a contract at London Stadium until June 2024 with the option of an additional 12 months, has scored three times and recorded four assists in 28 appearances for David Moyes’ side this term.
