“He won’t go there” Manchester United warned their transfer target will not come to Old Trafford.
Manchester United have been told that their dream signing Declan Rice will reject the offer to join the club despite being a “perfect fit”.
West Ham United star midfielder Declan Rice has been one of the Premier League’s top midfielders and a number of clubs are said to be interested in the former Chelsea Academy.
The 22-year-old has been a long-time target for United, but former Hammers defender Glen Johnson believes he wouldn’t be interested.
“I don’t think Manchester United could get anyone better than Declan Rice,” Johnson told BettingOdds.com.
“If he was available, I think Chelsea or Liverpool would be in front of them anyway.
“Those players only come around once. United have got [Donny] van de Beek or whoever and they try to sign all these players in that position for loads of money and it’s just never worked.
“If I was Declan I would be a bit concerned, to be honest with you. I’d be thinking Manchester United aren’t the Manchester United of old.”
Johnson believes United are not the top team they were a few years ago after five years without a trophy.
He continued: “There used to be a time when anytime Manchester United came calling, you go. It was the number one place. Everyone wanted to go. But they don’t have that appeal anymore
“I don’t think he’d end up there whether they want him or not. But in terms of their business, I think they should just sit tight and wait until the summer and weigh the whole situation up with everybody.”
Man United have been linked with a number of midfielders in the transfer window, but it is unlikely Ralf Rangnick will bring in a new signing in the January transfer window.
