Declan Rice told to quit West Ham with Man Utd 'a good move' amid Chelsea doubt


“West Ham have gone past Spurs, and to be honest, I don’t know how Tottenham have allowed that to happen. You just hope West Ham don’t miss out on the Champions League by a point or two because they will be kicking themselves. They will be wondering why they didn’t go out and get another striker in January.”

United are expected to prioritise signing a defensive midfielder this summer, and Rice could be at the top of the club’s shortlist. But it will primarily depend on the new manager’s preferences, and as Merson suggests, a lack of Champions League football could also be a significant stumbling block.
