BREAKING: West Ham have agreed to let Declan Rice move to Manchester United under one condition 🚨
According to The Su’n, West Ham United midf’ielder Declan Rice is set to reject a bu’mper contract offer from the club, in what is a major tran’sfer boost for Manchester United ahead of th’e upcoming summer transfer win’dow.
Rice is arguably the Hammers’ best pl’ayer and has remained the most cons’istent, pulling the stri’ngs in midfield for the te’am. He has also turned into a leader in the squad, taking up the armband f’rom club captain Mark Noble when the veteran doe’s not feature for the side.
His performances for Wes’t Ham have seen him pick up interest from United, Manchester Ci’ty and Chelsea, who are all looking to rein’force their midf’ield areas at the end of the season. Rice had prev’iously played for the Blues, until he was rele’ased from their youth teams as a teenager.
Midfield is an area tha’t the Red Devils are keen to fortify, with their current cr’op of options failing to make much of an impact thi’s term against stronger opposition. Thi’s,
coupled with an expe’cted squad overhaul in the summer under Erik ten Hag, makes it neces’sary for the side to snap up a quality midfie’lder- especi’ally one that can shield our defen’ce.
