Manchester United remain interested in West Ham midfielder Declan Rice – but the Hammers’ asking price could see them end their pursuit. The England international has been linked with a move to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ahead of the summer transfer window.
After their crushing defeat to Villarreal on Wednesday night, pressure is mounting on United boss Solskjaer ahead of the summer transfer window.
And they will know that they require some signings if they are to end their agonising wait for the Premier League title.
Rice is someone that has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, but the Mail Online report that West Ham’s asking price for their vice-captain could see United chase other targets.
The Red Devils are reportedly looking to strengthen in various different positions, including centre-back and striker, so spending big money on Rice may not be feasible.
United have interest in Borussia Dortmund pair Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland, while the likes of Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo have also been linked.

“I don’t agree with the owners that Declan Rice is a £100m footballer. Far, far more than £100m. Far, far more,” said Moyes.
“I look at the players who have joined some clubs from overseas and come in and nowhere near had the impact Declan Rice would have.
“I certainly wouldn’t put a price on it. You can decide which figure you want to put on it but I wouldn’t be sanctioning anything like that, that’s for sure.”
One solution to this could be West Ham’s reported interest in Jesse Lingard.

The attacking midfielder sparkled in east London after arriving on loan from United in January.
And United could agree to use the England international as leverage in negotiations, with Rice and Lingard swapping clubs this summer.
Speaking after United’s Europa League final defeat, Solskjaer admitted he felt his side needed strengthening to close the gap on their rivals.
“I’ve been delighted with the effort, the desire, the determination of all of the players, I can’t fault them at all,” said the Norwegian.
“We’ve probably done as well as anyone could imagine.
“We are here now, we need to do better.
“We need to work better, work harder, cleverer.
“But as I said two or three players to strengthen the starting XI and the squad all together is important for us to go even further.”
