Manchester United to explore possibility of signing Declan Rice as part of any deal with West Ham for Jesse Lingard

Manchester United to explore possibility of signing Declan Rice as part of any deal with West Ham for Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard has resurrected his career since joining West Ham in January, to such an extent that there is a strong possibility he will make Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros.

Such is his impact in East London that the Hammers are keen for the midfielder to stay beyond this season, although they fear his price-tag may have surged as a result of his recent performances.

The Athletic have reported today that Manchester United are ready to use West Ham’s desire to keep their player as a way of exploring a deal which could include Declan Rice.

Rice is currently out of action for West Ham, after picking up a knee injury whilst on international duty with England.

He is no doubt as important to the Irons as Lingard is proving to be, with the midfielder’s presence set to be sorely missed as David Moyes’ men fight for a Champions League place.

Whether or not West Ham would consider including him as part of a deal to keep Lingard remains to be seen. Any move would likely involve Lingard plus cash for Rice.
