Manchester United hit with Declan Rice setback after David Moyes comments

Manchester United have been hit with a transfer blow after David Moyes said Declan Rice is NOT for sale.

Man United are one of the top English clubs including Chelsea and Manchester City, who are interested in signing Rice from West Ham United.

The Red Devils showed interest in the West Ham skipper last summer but failed to convince The Hammers to cash in on their midfielder, who has maintained his consistency from last year’s Euros.

Moyes, ex-Manchester United manager, has hailed the 24-year-old as England’s best performer from last year.

“I think he’s been England’s best performer from the Euros. The most consistent performer,” Moyes told Sky Sports earlier this week via UtdDistrict.

Some of the players are now playing very well, Harry Kane for example, but if you looked at it from the start of the season to where we are now, I’d put Declan in that very high consistent bracket.”

Reports emerged in March that Manchester United were leading the race to sign Declan Rice from West Ham United, with the Londoners set to demand 15omillion pounds for the central midfielder, a role that has been a huge void at United.

And according to Daily Mail’s reporter Ian Ladyman, the West Ham United skipper is reportedly keen on joining The Red Devils, with hopes of becoming a direct replacement to Paul Pogba, who will become a free agent in June.

When Moyes was asked if the club have received any bids from Rice’s suitors or were just yet another transfer rumour, the West Ham boss said: “If I had heard something, I wouldn’t tell you.

“But the best thing to say is that no we’ve not, and let me tell you, he’s not for sale.

“So, that may shut down any questions about Declan, but we do expect questions on him because he’s doing so well.”
