Three-time European champions Manchester United have received a big transfer boost in their pursuit of highly rated West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.
Manchester United are one of several clubs keen on a deal for the recently capped Three Lions of England international.
Declan Rice had earlier played three non-competitive games for the Republic of Ireland before he decided to switch his international allegiance to England.
The 20-year-old made his England debut during the Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro which the Three Lions won 5-1 away from home.
The Montenegro game was one of the numerous highlights of a superb season for Declan Rice who broke into the West Ham United team last season.
Manchester United have received a big transfer boost in the chase for his signature after the West Ham United manager said that he’s not sure whether the player will be at the club next season.
According to Manuel Pellegrini, Declan Rice has a lot of potentials and it would be difficult for the Hammers to hang on to him beyond this summer.
Apart from Manchester United, Rice has also been touted as a possible transfer addition to the playing squad at both Manchester City and Chelsea.
Declan Rice was a Chelsea player before he was released at the age of 14.
