Dean Ashton says Declan Rice is not ready for Man Utd

Rice has been linked with Man Utd recently


Former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton advises Declan Rice not to join Manchester United. According to him, the young midfielder must at least wait for one or two seasons.

Recently, the young Englishman has been linked with Manchester United. In fact, a number of sources have reported the Red Devils are ready to spend 100 million pounds to sign Rice.

Ashton says that it is not the time for Rice to move to a bigger club. The former England national team player who retired early thinks that West Ham is the right club for the development of Rice’s career.

“I feel as if he’s still got improvements to make and there is no better place to learn and do that than West Ham.” Ashton said.

Pundits believe Declan Rice is to replace Michael Carrick at Manchester United. Both players share similarities in their styles of play. It is also worth mentioning that Rice and Carrick had both graduated from the West Ham academy.

Manchester United midfielder Declan Rice has been informed that West Ham plan to keep the player for the long-term as the Hammers slapped a £100 million pricetag on the England international. United are seeking a midfield acquisition in the January transfer window and have turned their attentions to the signing of Rice from the Irons.

According to the Daily Mirror, United are to launch a January transfer move for Rice, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believed to be a huge fan of the midfielder.

Rice is understood to be happy at his current club, but has hinted in the past that he would move to a new club if the right offer came in. Chelsea and Arsenal are also known admirers of Rice as both clubs seek to sign one of England and Europe’s best young midfielders.

Rice open to future United move?


West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has said that he has the credentials to play for Manchester United but he is not prepared for the challenge at the current point of time.

The England international has made impressive progress with the Hammers over the past year and he is now regarded as one of the constants in the national setup.

As such, there has been speculation linking him with a move to the Red Devils and speaking to Four Four Two, he has acknowledged that he would be tempted to join the club in the future.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think I’ve got the ability to play for a club like that. But it’s all about the timing and I don’t think the timing is right for me at all. I’ve still got so much to learn,” he told.

Rice has made three appearances for the England national side since switching his allegiance from the Republic of Ireland. He is expected to feature in the forthcoming games against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
