Manchester United to splash 150m for Declan Rice

Manchester United are frontrunners for Declan Rice in the Summer. The West Ham United midfielder has been on the radar of several clubs especially Manchester United.

According to reports, Manchester United will spend 150m for Declan Rice in the Summer transfer window. Manchester United have lacked the services of a proper central defensive midfielder for the past couple of seasons. Ever since Ander Herrera left for PSG, United have lacked in defensive midfielders.

The only player capable of playing in the position is Nemanja Matic. Matic however cannot play every week due to his age hence United have struggled. United had to use two players for one position – Fred and McTominay. While Fred had a rough start however was able to find his feet quickly. McTominay however has been absolutely terrible for United. Hence, United are in the market for a new midfielder and Declan Rice is the best possible option.

Ten Hag is a big fan of Rice

Erik Ten Hag is to be the United manager in the Summer. Ten Hag is to be a given a sizeable transfer budget in the summer. He is to rebuild the club which includes offloading a number of players and bringing in new players. Ten Hag employs “Tiki-Taka” playstyle and involves heavy passing in the between the players. He also employs a high line in defense hence he requires fast defenders as well. However, United lack players who can pass the ball quickly and lack players in defense who can play a high line. One player who can do both is Rice and he seems to be on the Ten Hag’s radar. In fact, According to reports, Ten Hag is a big fan of the West Ham United captain and wants him at Old Trafford at any costs in the Summer.
