Rice is undoubtedly on the club’s radar and the 22-year-old has also been heavily linked with Chelsea recently. However, despite coming through the academy at the Blues, there is a feeling that their interest in the player may have cooled somewhat, following the departure of Frank Lampard as manager.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that United will be favourites to sign the midfielder in the summer, though, with West Ham expected to hold out for a significant transfer fee. Reports suggesting that anything between £80m and £100m could be needed.
There had been claims that Jesse Lingard could be used in the transfer for Rice, but it is said that the Hammers would not be interested in a part-exchange deal.
