Declan Rice insists he still has a lot to learn before major move

West Ham star Declan Rice has hinted a potential move to Manchester United could happen but not in the immediate future.

The young Englishman has been reportedly linked with a transfer to Old Trafford all summer but nothing truly transpired.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s desire to sign local homegrown talent is no secret so it’s not a surprise he’s after one of England’s rising prospects.

United’s need for defensive midfielder isn’t lost on the fans either who felt it was a position that desperately needed investment.

Rice would potentially walk right into Solskjaer’s midfield as it’s likely he would be partnered up alongside Paul Pogba.

Rice may not even get his move in the future should Scott McTominay continue to develop into a top midfielder.

The young Scotsman was impressive all throughout Manchester United’s pre-season and he’s been rewarded with plenty of minutes so far.

Should McTominay continue his rise then Solskjaer would feel there’s no real need for Rice unless the West Ham man was happy to play back-up.

The former Molde man has also had a preference for youth as his back-up players so it’s like James Garner would be promoted by then.

The future is unpredictable however and so Rice may yet find himself in red if it all doesn’t go to plan.
