Manchester United told Declan Rice ‘will reach another level’ when he leaves West Ham, with Red Devils keen on possible deal
Aaron Cresswell has admitted Declan Rice would reach ‘another level’ if he were to ever leave West Ham amid speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
Rice has been one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League this season and his performances has led to all sorts of rumours that he will make the step up in the summer to a bigger club.
But it is United that are most keen to try and nail down the signature of Rice, as they seek to continue their summer of spending.
It is believed that West Ham are asking big money for their best player, but the reports suggests that United are confident that they can sign up Rice for a fee of around £45 million.
And amid the speculation, Cresswell has opened up and claimed Rice would reach ‘another level’ if he were to ever leave West Ham.
‘He’s close to 100 Premier League games already, and I’m not just saying that because he’s a West Ham player and a good mate of mine, but I really do believe he’s one of the top talents in the country,’ Cresswell told talkSPORT.
‘I wouldn’t like to see him leave, but if he were to ever leave he would become another level with better players around him.
‘He’s come in at centre-back over the last couple of games due to injuries we’ve had and he can play either. ‘It’s a great option he’s got but in terms of ability-wise, he’s a fantastic player.’
Rice is a very gifted player that should be at a bigger club than the Hammers, so if United come calling, he should not turn down a move to Old Trafford.
