- Declan Rice could join Manchester United in the winter transfer window
- The Red Devils are hoping they can add the midfielder to their depth
- United are unsure of Paul Pogba's future at Old Trafford amid Real Madrid's interests
Manchester Unired are reportedly planning to launch a £90 million bid for West Ham United midfield maestro Declan Rice.
The Red Devils are still unsure of Paul Pogba's future at Old Trafford despite managing to keep the Frenchman from leaving them this summer.
However, SunSport quoting Noel Whelan claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make a move for the England international when transfer window opens in January.
Now-BBC Radio Leeds commentator Whelan told Football Insider: "West Ham have got a really special player on their hands.
"They will struggle to hold on to him, because the big clubs will be hot on his trail. I think Declan Rice could be the next player who goes for a Premier League record fee.
"We have just seen Harry Maguire go for £80million and I wouldn’t be surprised if Rice goes for more than that, above £90m, even.
"He’s young, English, hugely talented and is such a long way from his peak. "You look at a team like Man Utd, who need a midfield anchorman and you can see it happening.
"They don’t mind paying over the odds for a player, as we saw in the summer. I could see them looking to get Rice in January."

Solskjaer signed £85m rated Harry Maguire, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 21, joined from Crystal Palace in a deal around £50m.
Daniel James was signed for £15m but United are still lacking in the midfielder, plus they are not sure of Pogba's commitment.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Everton striker Theo Walcott seems to have aimed a dig at Manchester United assistant manager Michael Carrick in a video clip.
The former Arsenal forward described the Red Devils legend as a 'tall but slow midfielder' during his playing days.
Walcott joined the Toffees from the Gunners three season ago and has scored nine goals and five assists in 57 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.
