Some Manchester United fans were very impressed with West Ham star Declan Rice after the youngster put in another top class display in the Premier League against Newcastle today.
The 21-year-old has been in exceptional form over the past two seasons.
He has undoubtedly been the Hammers’ best and most consistent player throughout that period.
Rice has made 104 appearances for the Hammers, racking up two goals and three assists in the process (Transfermarkt).
In 94 Premier League appearances for West Ham, the seven-capped England international has racked up 236 tackles, 147 interceptions, 172 clearances and 640 ball recoveries (premierleague.com).
Those numbers don’t lie.
And Manchester United have already been linked with a blockbuster £80 million move for the Hammers youngster (Daily Star).
Rice clearly has what it takes to play at the very top level.
West Ham fans will be praying that the England international stays at the London Stadium for the foreseeable future, however.
And David Moyes will certainly be thinking the same.
Manchester United could do with a player like Rice. He would undoubtedly be an upgrade on the ageing Nemanja Matic at Old Trafford.
And some United fans have pleaded with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bring the 21-year-old to Old Trafford this summer…

Very impressed with Declan Rice. He is good on the ball and his long passing is pinpoint. Also a threat inside the box during set pieces. He’l end up signing for a big team one day

Declan Rice is a player. Under the tutelage of Michael Carrick he could be special. That move would make sense for both United and Rice
