How Declan Rice’s Arsenal transfer can help Manchester United

Declan Rice’s recent move may be good news for Manchester United.

Declan Rice completed his long-awaited move to Arsenal over the weekend, joining the Gunners for a fee believed to be £100m plus a further £5m in easily achievable add-ons.

The move is a major one for Arsenal are they look to challenge for the Premier League title once more and also compete in the Champions League for the first time since 2017.

However, Rice leaving West Ham for Arsenal may also prove helpful for Manchester United.

According to The Telegraph, after earning a large sum from the Rice deal, David Moyes will now go after Manchester United’s out-of-favour England international centre-back, Harry Maguire.

No fee is mentioned in the report, but it is likely West Ham can now match the demands of Manchester United for Harry Maguire.

Maguire has fallen massively out of favour under Erik ten Hag, with Luke Shaw even used ahead of him at centre-back during periods last season.
