Man United designates West Ham’s Declan Rice as primary midfield target

Manchester United assign West Ham's Declan Rice as their main midfield target for next summer

Manchester United have designated Declan Rice as one of the top midfield targets for the 2022 summer transfer window, according to reports.

Manchester United need a central midfielder

Manchester United had one of the best summer transfer windows of 2021 of the 20 Premier League clubs.

Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have been hired to strengthen two previously weak areas of the United team.

Cristiano Ronaldo was also signed during the final week of the window and is undoubtedly ready to improve United’s attacking threat.

But despite a fairly successful window, there is still an obvious problem that Man United must address on their team, which is, of course, the defensive midfield.

There are a couple of reasons for this, but the main one is that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can play Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in the same midfield three without being overly exposed on defense.

Pogba is a quality midfielder, but when playing pivot alongside Fred or Scott McTominay, it’s safe to say that United seem very vulnerable.

Man United looking at Declan Rice

The easy solution to this would be to sign a top-notch defensive midfielder, something United currently doesn’t have on their books.

But now, as mentioned above, a recent Manchester Evening News report suggests that this is exactly what the Red Devils will do next summer.

According to him Manchester evening news:

Manchester United have designated Declan Rice as their main midfield target in next year’s transfer window.

Rice is currently under contract with West Ham until 2024, but is not expected to sign a new contract, leaving him with just two years to execute his contract in the summer.

Rice, despite being only 22 years old, has a wealth of Premier League and international experience and, on paper, would be the perfect signing for United.

No potential fees are mentioned in the report, but it’s hard to see the Hammers letting it go cheap.
