Manchester United are allegedly interested in acquiring an £80 million England midfielder in the summer of 2022.
He is widely considered as one of the greatest midfielders in the country, with his performances for both West Ham and England being consistently excellent for some time.
With the West Ham midfielder having previously been a member of Chelsea’s youth system, you’d think the Blues will be keeping a watch on his growth in order to make amends for their oversight.
According to ESPN, Manchester United is ready to fight for his signature, with a transfer in the summer of 2022 being mentioned as a possibility.
According to the ESPN report, any possible suitor would have to pay West Ham more than £80 million to get Rice through the door.
Normally, there is a premium connected to English players, which causes their price to rise, but in Rice’s case, he would be worth every cent.
Rice is an experienced midfielder who patrols the deeper areas in front of the defense while still being able to spark an attack by driving with the ball or threading a pass.
Man United’s midfield desperately needs a midfielder like him to offer cover for the defenders and keep the ball flowing through the middle of the field.
And the best thing is that he’s only 22 years old…
