Manchester United target Declan Rice ‘would change everything’ at Old Trafford
As incoming manager Erik ten Hag aims to make his imprint on the first-team squad, the Red Devils have allegedly named the 23-year-old one of their top targets for the forthcoming transfer window.
United are expected to lose out on Champions League football next season after a string of poor performances under former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and temporary replacement Ralf Rangnick.
As a result, several changes are likely in Manchester’s red half, with Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata, and Nemanja Matic all pushing towards the exit door.
According to ESPN, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka may follow suit, requiring Ten Hag to bring in many replacements.
According to the source, the United hierarchy has highlighted a new striker, central midfielder, and center-back as major areas for development, with the Dutch manager poised to be given a budget of £100 million to £150 million.
It’s also been reported that the 20-time English champions are’set to face no competition’ for Rice due to other possible bidders’ priorities.
