Paul Merson Declan Rice

Paul Merson believes that West Ham midfielder Declan Rice will leave in the summer and Manchester United should break the bank for him. United have been strongly linked to the midfielder but face stiff competition from both Chelsea and Manchester City. Rice still has two years left on his contract with West Ham possessing the negotiating power to extend his contract by a further year.

“I think Declan Rice will be gone this summer,” Paul Merson said talking about Declan Rice. “I think it will be Man Utd, if you’re Man Utd you’ve got to break the bank. If you look at their midfield it is not strong enough, they don’t dominate football matches and for me, they have to go and get him. I think he is the best in the business, he has improved immensely, he has taken his game up not one or two, I think he has taken it up ten-fold.”

“From a holding midfield player, he is bombing forward, scoring goals, getting chances, and making goals. I can’t talk highly enough of the lad, I think he’s been absolutely phenomenal,” he added. “Chelsea could go and get him but they could do without him. They’ve still got Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante – three unbelievable midfield players and they dominate football matches. But you look at Man Utd and the midfield isn’t strong enough to win anything really. “Every time I come to Old Trafford, I’ve always said it’s one of my favorite places to play.”
