Manchester United continue to be linked with West Ham United's Declan Rice.

West Ham United have seen Declan Rice become a key part of their side over the last year – and that has unsurprisingly sparked interest in his services.

The 20-year-old started out as a defender under David Moyes, but moved into midfield under Manuel Pellegrini, and is now a mainstay of the side.

Rice has formed a superb partnership with Mark Noble, and has even switched his international allegiance from Ireland to England, featuring for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions.

 

Rice has become a target for Manchester United off the back of his performances for the Hammers, but they will have to pay big money to get him.

The Express report that United as well as bitter rivals Manchester City want to sign Rice, but West Ham have slapped a £100million asking price on him.

That would be a British record if either Manchester club pay up, but United fans are far from impressed with the rumours emerging.

Some want to see the likes of Thomas Partey, Wilfred Ndidi or Sandro Tonali signed, or even promoted youngster James Garner rather than spend a club-record fee on Rice.

Others just don't think United will go anywhere near that kind of fee, deeming it laughable, and urged the club not to get restricted to only signing English players.
