Manchester United is unlikely to be able to recruit midfielder Declan Rice this summer, according to The Athletic.
Declan Rice could change the team this summer. After helping West Ham win the Europa Conference League, the possibility of this midfielder leaving is higher. Arsenal is one of the teams interested in signing Declan Rice .
Football Insider confirmed that the Emirates Stadium team is the best candidate to own Rice ‘s signature . The 24-year-old has turned down numerous extension offers at West Ham and selling the player seems the most likely decision.
However, Arsenal are not the only team pursuing Rice. Both Man Utd and Bayern Munich also want the midfielder.
However, the chance for the Red Devils to own Rice is not high. Specifically, The Athletic claims that the Old Trafford team cannot afford to buy Rice, once the asking price is still around £ 100 million.
It should be known that West Ham is determined not to sell Rice cheaply. In contrast, Man United has other important goals. They need to bring in a quality goalscorer and have been linked with a move for Harry Kane in recent weeks.
In addition, goalkeepers and full-backs are also in the sights of Man Utd. Therefore, Man Utd will not be able to spend large amounts of money on Rice.
Thus, Arsenal considers one less opponent in this deal. They are willing to meet the high price demanded by West Ham.
