Manchester United told they ‘need’ to sign Declan Rice by Jack Wilshere as comparison to past Liverpool sides is made July 8, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Manchester United ‘need’ to make a move for Declan Rice this summer, believes Jack Wilshere.
The Red Devils are hoping for a transformative summer in the transfer market, but so far, things have got off to a steady start.
Full-back Tyrell Malacia has already completed a move to Old Trafford, however Erik ten Hag is yet to replace a number of players who moved on this summer, including Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani.
Signing a central midfielder is a top priority for United this summer, with the club heavily linked with a move to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona and a deal for Christian Eriksen moving closer.
However, a deal for the Dutch star is proving tricky to get over the line, and Wilshere suggested that the club should look closer to home in Rice.
The West Ham star is arguably the best player outside of the Premier League’s top six, and according to Wilshere, United should be going all-out to sign him.
Speaking on Drive host Andy Goldstein, who supports United, Wilshere said: “I’ll tell you who you need, Declan Rice.”
Responding to claims that everyone needs Declan Rice, Wilshere said: “Yeah, but United NEED him.”
Asked if he’d be worried by United’s lack of business this summer, talkSPORT’s Jason Cundy replied: “No, there’s bags of time left still.
“The only thing that should worry United is that historically United have been a little bit lapse in the transfer market.
“Do you think Man United look a little bit like Liverpool did 20 years ago?
“They weren’t dining off that top table. Liverpool found it hard to bring in the elite players, but now, Liverpool are right at the top.”
