Manchester United keen on agreeing deal for 21-year-old midfielder

Declan Rice news

Man United after Rice?

Manchester United are still understood to hold an interest in signing midfielder Declan Rice from the ranks of West Ham United.

The England international was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils last summer but the speculation has quietened over the course of the season.

However, according to The Mail, there is still said to be an interest from United to land the former Chelsea graduate, who has made 26 appearances for the Hammers this term.

United have placed the focus on signing young British players under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they are likely to go with the same policy when the transfer window reopens.

Aston Villa's Jack Grealish has been linked with a possible move to Old Trafford of late but reports claim that the club may focus on the signing of Rice, given the need to reinforce the options in the centre of the park.

Nemanja Matic may head through the exit door when the season concludes and the same could be the case with Paul Pogba who is attracting interest from Juventus and Real Madrid.
