Manchester United ‘100%’ want to sign £150m star

The Red Devils ‘100% want’ to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice in the upcoming summer transfer window.

West Ham’s £150 million (€179m/$188m) valuation of the 23-year-old Englishman, however, could thwart Manchester United’s attempts to complete a deal, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said: “They 100% want Declan Rice, but the valuation that West Ham have on him is a hindrance right now because that would blow their entire budget for the summer. While they do want a midfielder, that can’t just be it.”
