Manchester City are set to compete with Manchester United in the race to sign West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice this summer.

The England international currently has two years left on his Hammers contract with the option for another 12 months.

He has no plans of prolonging his stay further. It won't be a surprise if the Hammers are tempted to sanction his exit.

According to Daily Mail, United are firm admirers of Rice, and have been monitoring his situation for several months.

They could make a big-money offer this summer, but face fierce competition from the reigning Premier League champions.

Pep Guardiola is set to lose the services of Fernandinho, and this could pave the way for a high-profile midfield addition.

The Cityzens are likely to compete for Rice's signature and may have the edge with Champions League football on offer.

The Hammers are expected to demand a sum of over £100m for Rice, who is also being monitored by his former club Chelsea.
