Ex-West Ham defender Johnson can't see Rice tempted by Man Utd

Former West Ham defender Glen Johnson can’t see Declan Rice joining Manchester United.

Rice is again being linked with United.

“I don’t think Manchester United could get anyone better than Declan Rice,” Johnson said to 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.

“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.”
