Declan Rice is wanted by both Manchester clubs, City and United, with his manager Manual Pellegrini admitting that there are doubts about his future at West Ham.
That is after the Chilean said that “he doesn’t know” if Rice will still be at the club next season.
The 20-year old defensive midfielder has had a break-out season with the Hammers and has been one of the few unqualified successes in what has been an up and down season for the East London side – although they did finish the campaign on a high by thrashing Watford 4 – 1 at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Declan has broken into the England team after switching his international allegiance from Ireland, but now the bigger clubs are starting to circle for the former West Ham academy player, who is ambitious and wants to be playing for a side that is regularly competing for the highest honours, as well as playing in Europe.
