Manchester United are keeping tabs on West Ham United’s Declan Rice as they ponder a swoop for the midfielder, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to bolster his squad as he looks to propel the Old Trafford outfit back to their glory days.
And the Daily Mail report that Red Devils scout Simon Wells was at Bramall Lane to watch the Rice during the Hammers’ 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United on Friday.
Injuries to Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba have left United short of midfield options but it’s claimed that any potential move for the England international wouldn’t happen until the summer.
The 20-year-old has more often than not impressed for the Irons over recent seasons, winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award in both 2017 and 2018.
As well as earning him seven senior international caps to date, the defensive midfielder’s performances saw him rewarded with a new long-term contract at the London Stadium in December 2018.
That deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2024, meaning it’s thought any buyer would have to put forward a significant sum of money if they want to land the London-born star.
