Man United told to sign Declan Rice to partner McTominay in midfield.
Scott McTominay scored his seventh goal of the season against the Hammers to qualify for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Former Man City striker Trevor Sinclair believes United should turn their heads to Rice who could possibly be the future of their midfield.
Given the competition in that particular position at United, Sinclair claims McTominay and Rice would form a rigid midfield alliance in Solskjaer’s 4-2-3-1 formation.

“[Tomas] Soucek and Rice keep McTominay out of the West Ham side, whereas Rice walks into the Manchester United side,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.
“If that’s a big fish in a small pond then I don’t quite know what you’re talking about, Simon.
“Rice goes alongside McTominay [at Man United]. For me, he’s better than Fred and when you look at McTominay going into the West Ham side, he’s not going to play in one of the forward midfield positions.
“Soucek is the top scorer at the football club and there’s an argument that Rice is better than McTominay. So for me, your argument’s dead.
“Both teams play a 4-2-3-1 so I think the two holding midfielders at West Ham, Soucek and Rice, stay but I think if Rice goes to Manchester United he takes the position of either McTominay or Fred.”
