Senior figures at Man United are ‘in agreement’ over Declan Rice as they are interested in securing the services of West Ham United midfielder.

22-year-old versatile midfielder has played a vital role in the Hammers push for European qualification this campaign, captaining the side for much of the season and hasn’t missed a single minute in the English top-tier.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have been strongly linked with a switch for their former academy player, however, that interest is believed to have cooled after the arrival of German manager.

The 20-times English champions have also been credited with interest and according to the Daily Express, club manager and board are on the same page an planning to make a move for English midfielder when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

West Ham value Declan Rice at an eye-watering £100m – with the Hammers, head-coach David Moyes insisting his player worth more.

‘I don’t agree with the owners that Declan Rice is a £100m footballer. Far, far more than £100m. Far, far more,’ Moyes said in February.

‘I look at the players who have joined some clubs from overseas and come in and nowhere near had the impact Declan Rice would have.

‘I certainly wouldn’t put a price on it. You can decide which figure you want to put on it but I wouldn’t be sanctioning anything like that, that’s for sure.’
