Declan Rice claims he is good enough to play for Manchester United

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice believes that he is good enough to play for Manchester United amid continued speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has claimed that he is good enough to play for Manchester United.

The 20-year-old was repeatedly linked with a move to the Red Devils before he eventually signed a new contract with the Hammers.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, the former Chelsea youth player said that while he felt he was good enough to play for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, this summer's transfer window was not the right time to move.

"Don't get me wrong, I think I've got the ability to play for a club like that. But it's all about the timing and I don't think the timing is right for me at all. I've still got so much to learn," he said.

"I'm loving it at West Ham, the connection between me and the supporters is special. I've become one of the fans' favourites and the manager likes me.

"I've signed a contract here for the next few years and I'm looking forward to playing this season and the season beyond, so we'll just see where it goes.

"To be called a West Ham legend in the future, maybe, would be a real honour."

The England international has started all four Premier League games for Manuel Pellegrini's side so far this season.
