Manchester United 'preparing to battle Chelsea for Declan Rice'

Manchester United are ready to rival Chelsea for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to go head to head with Chelsea for the signature of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice this summer.

The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for the Hammers during the 2020-21 campaign, making 19 appearances in all competitions and not missing a single minute of Premier League action.

Rice has a contract at the London Stadium until June 2024, with the option of a further year, but there is thought to be significant interest in the England international from Chelsea.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is allegedly keen to bring the midfielder to Stamford Bridge, but according to ESPN, United are firmly in the hunt for a player who could cost in the region of £70m.

A recent report claimed that Rice was not interested in moving to Old Trafford as he wanted to remain in London, seemingly making Chelsea the favourites for his signature.

The Englishman has made 128 appearances for West Ham in all competitions.
