Man Utd planning move for 22-year-old PL midfielder

By | February 20, 2021

Liverpool and Man Utd have both reportedly contacted the agent of Declan Rice to register their interest in the West Ham United anchorman.

The England international had been heavuly linked with a switch to another Premier League team, Chelsea, but it is believed that Frank Lampard’s departure from the West London club has ended the club’s interest in their ex-academy product.

Declan Rice has been in fine form for the Hammers during the 2020-21 campaign, captaining David Moyes’s side on a number of occasions, while he has not missed a single minute of Premier League football this season.

According to transfer expert Ian McGarry, both Liverpool and Man United have “expressed interest” to the 22-year-old’s agent.

“He is no longer on the transfer list of recruitment possibilities for the Stamford Bridge club, but he has certainly roused the interest of Liverpool and Manchester United,” McGarry told The Transfer Window Podcast.

“Both of whom have expressed interest to Rice’s agent as we understand and they have asked to be kept informed of any offers made for the England international.”

The midfielder’s current contract at the London Stadium is set to to expire in June 2024
