The recruitment of Declan Rice puts Manchester City and Manchester United in particular.
Long dropped in the Premier League title race, Manchester United is already in the midst of construction and thinking about how to bounce back next season. Besides the recruitment of a new trainer in the person of Erik ten Hagthe Red Devils are working on revamping their workforce. A dozen players could leave Old Trafford, and new ones are expected. The Declan Rice case is open.
Already positioned on a potential transfer of the midfielder from West Ham, United could however see some serious competition tumbling out since according to the Dailymail, Manchester City are also on the lookout. The media explains that even if the Skyblues are preparing to pay the €75 million of the release clause of a certain Erling Haaland, they could pay the compensation requested by the Hammers for Rice.
Rice wanted Chelsea, but…
With one nuance that West Ham are currently asking for €120m. A sum that could be considered a bit too high by the management of City. For his part, the player has already mentioned his wish to return to … Chelsea, the club where he had played as a youngster. But the wobbly situation of Blues should prevent such a move. Everything should therefore be played out between the two Mancunian rivals.
