Manchester United have had their eyes on West Ham’s Declan Rice for a while now and after Rice rejected the Hammers second contract offer, there still might be a chance of signing the England International this summer.

Rice is not pushing for a move, and West Ham don’t intend to lose him as they are expected to make a further offer of fresh terms for the 22-year-old. They are not desperate to sell just yet, with Rice under contract and extra revenue from the Europa League coming in next season. However Rice could add leverage by trying to force a move.

Rice has three years remaining on his current contract with West Ham holding an option to extend that deal by a further 12 months should they wish, but he reportedly wants Champions League football next season.

Chelsea also have expressed interest but it is believed that if there was a move, United might have the best chance because of Jesse Lingard’s impact this season. The attacking midfielder being a prime target for Moyes after an outstanding loan spell at the London Stadium in the second half of the season.

West Ham have not yet received a formal bid for the midfielder and is valued by the club at more than £100 million.
