Manchester United ‘ready to spend £50million on West Ham star Declan Rice’
The report also says Nemanja Matic’s future at United will be in doubt if Rice arrives, as the club may look to recoup some of the transfer fee.
Chelsea are also said to be monitoring Rice, and manager Maurizio Sarri this week praised his defensive abilities and noted his improvement this season.
Meanwhile, United have been scouting Thomas Meunier all season as they look to shore up their defence this summer, according to a report in The Sun.
The report claims there are doubts £19m-signing Diogo Dalot can make the position his own and United have been looking at the PSG defender as an alternative.
Solskjaer refused to rule out any positions when he spoke about how he would strengthen the squad in the summer. Meunier has made 28 appearances for PSG this season and notched an impressive five goals and seven assists.
Finally, United scouts were watching DC United striker Luciano Acosta this weekend, reports say.
The Athletic claim United were present to see Wayne Rooney’s strike partner in DC’s 4-0 defeat to LA FC.
The 24-year-old has one goal in five MLS games this season after scoring ten last season – including a brilliant late header from a long Rooney cross that went viral.
