Rice’s refusal to sign a contract extension with the east London club has led to speculation that the Hammers will trade the midfielder at the end of the current campaign.
While Chelsea, who has long admired Rice, has made the West Ham star their top summer transfer target, United has also expressed interest in bringing the England international to Old Trafford.
TalkSPORT claims that United made a £100 million approach for the 24-year-old midfielder during the summer transfer window, but West Ham refused to let him leave.
For their best player, who has fewer than 18 months left on his West Ham contract, they would now be open to accepting an offer of £120 million plus add-ons.
With manager Mikel Arteta being a “big fan” of Rice, the Gunners are still the favorites to recruit Rice in the summer.
According to reports, Arteta has already thought through how Rice would fit into his Arsenal system.
I believe he will thrive in an Arsenal shirt and with superior players surrounding him.
To be able to recruit players like Rice, “We Need to Get into the Champions League.”
Who wouldn’t want to represent Arsenal in the Champions League in London?
