Former West Ham United defender Scott Minto has claimed that Real Madrid are interested in signing Hammers midfielder Declan Rice.
Rice has been in impressive form for West Ham this term and appeared twice for England during the March international break, having switched his allegiance from the Republic of Ireland.
Manchester United are said to be prepared to 'break the bank' to sign the 20-year-old this summer, but according to Minto, Madrid are also "knocking on the door".
"I'm hearing that even Real Madrid are knocking on the door and speaking to his family," Minto said on Astro SuperSport. "I'm not going to tell you who, but it's a reliable source."
Rice has scored twice in 35 appearances for West Ham during the 2018-19 campaign,
