Declan Rice has been linked to Manchester United in the past few days. The midfielder has caught the eye of many European powerhouses with his sensational play, with reports revealing that a €90 million bid could reach West Ham's board in the winter transfer market, namely from the Red Devils.

The English wonderkid has been gathering some interest from his nation's top clubs, with Manchester United topping the list. However, even with all the talent, he's shown so far, Gary Neville is not fully convinced this is the right moment for the player to move from West Ham, according to Goal.

"I don’t know. I mean, you talk about £80m, £90m to get him out of West Ham. ‘We’ve seen a bid for Wilfried Zaha from Everton for £70m odd [which was rejected]. To get players out of the likes of West Ham now, Crystal Palace, it’s not going to be easy, so it’s going to cost a fortune.  Would I say yes now at €80 million, €90 million?" said Neville reports Goal.

"I’m not feeling that personally at this moment in time, but am I seeing a really good player who could potentially develop into something fantastic for the next 10 years? Yes. I really do think that. But do United need another player? They’ve already got [Nemanja] Matic, they’ve already got [Scott] McTominay who are doing a similar role to what I see Rice doing," added the former Manchester United star.

The 20-year-old initially started in a defensive role in Pellegrini's scheme, ending up lately a bit ahead as a defensive midfielder, making him one of The Hammers most indispensable players. With his performances, Rice already deserved Southgate's trust by getting a call-up to England's national team.
