According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have made ‘£80million-rated’ Declan Rice their primary transfer target for next summer, but supporters aren’t convinced by him.
The 20-year-old has risen to prominence at West Ham United and is a crucial part of Manuel Pellegrini’s plans at the London Stadium.
Man United are in dire need of midfield reinforcements and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s young, British transfer criteria, Rice seems like the perfect acquisition.
These supporters don’t seem too interested in seeing Rice arrive at Old Trafford though, especially at the touted price…

READ WEST HAM’S VERDICT
Supporters of other teams can think what they want, West Ham fans know just how influential Rice is and will be hoping he sticks around for as long as possible.
It’s no surprise he’s been linked with the clubs he has after becoming a regular Premier League player and England international so early in his career.
I wouldn’t worry about the prospect of Rice departing until at least next summer though, despite the club’s current lowly form.
