Man Utd fear Arsenal has won the race for midfielder already

Manchester United is Arsenal’s main competitor for the signature of Declan Rice as the midfielder edges close to leaving West Ham United in the summer.

The Englishman has been one of the finest players in his position in the Premier League over the years.

As the Hammers continue to underachieve, he wants to play in the Champions League and will seek a departure from the London Stadium at the end of this term.

This has placed Arsenal on alert, with Mikel Arteta reportedly a fan of the England star.

However, Manchester United is also on the lookout for a new midfielder, and they currently have Rice on their shopping list.

The Red Devils have the resources to compete with Arsenal to sign him. However, a report on Football Insider reveals they are not so confident.

This is because they believe Rice has agreed to move to Arsenal when the term finishes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Rice is one of the finest midfielders around and the Englishman is due a move to a top Premier League club.

Arsenal knows the value he will add to their squad, but the club must be vigilant and not be complacent as they work on the transfer because it could be hijacked.

  1. I don’t understand Arteta
    If you want to buy Rice why did you offer extended contract to Elneny who’s a benchwarmer and don’t contribute much.
    Elneny and Partey will be 30 this and Xhaka 31 so the midfield should be freshened up

    Why then Elneny who doesn’t play until someone is injured or needed a rest.

    1. Howard, It is said that Elneny is popular within the squad and may well become a coach with us, down the line sometime.

      Other than that I can only agree with you , though perhaps even more than you do with yourself, that Elneny has no logical reason to be anywhere within a mile of an Arsenal squad.

      He is the least naturally gifted player I can remember since some of the completely hopeless centre backs brought in by Wenger, ie: Silvestre, Schilllachi, Mustafi, Sokratis and Co.

      1. Elneny got a new deal because of the injury he sustained which would of kept him out until after his contract would of expired so arsenal showed him some class as he is a well respected and long time member of the squad that we will financially and emotionally support with a 1 year extension people don’t understand the finances it takes to pay for medical care the players receive especially after his contract would of expired while not earning and still having to pay for the same bills imagine it was your average joe who got injured and their contract was ending in 6 months but due to being a good worker and long servant to the business they offer them a 2 year fixed term contract

        1. He also took a pay cut before extending just to let it be known. He is loyal so the club reciprocated that loyalty IMO. A good squad player and definitely better than Sambi we for me should be moved on.


          I presume you are aware that he is a milionaire, probably several times over, or at least he ought to be, with all the years he has been contracted to us while still earning far too high a wage for his extremely moderate ablity.

          Millionaires are easily able to support their own treatment, IF indeed he had even needed to pay it himself, which he did NOT need.

          You are a strange Gooner who supports a rank poor player more than the club.

          Wrong priorities, my muddled friend.

      2. Elneny is not a CB though jon .Mari anyone ?

        Remember when you said Elneny would never plAy for us again and Arteta would absolutely be in agreement with you as no top manager would have him in their sqaud ,low and behold he comes back ,plays and gets a new contract .
        Jon ?

        1. DK, Not a CB?! Nobody and certainly NOT I ever said that he WAS!

          I gave examples of other rank poor players, who just happened to all be CB’s.


          1. “Wenger had a habit” have a day off with the Wenger disrespect it’s getting old now. It’s like he had an option of signing better players at that time. HELLOOOOOOOO we could only afford such players. Did you see Arsenal spending at that time like they have spent these last two summers. As to Elneny he performs just as good as Partey when it comes to covering the back 4, it’s in the attacking department that he lacks the skills of Thomas.

    1. Better than Elneny
      You just have to be nice and then you get a contract
      Arsenal is a charity club now

        1. “Compassion” ? To a multi milionaire who is filthy rich!

          What nonsense, as we are not a charity for rotten bad players but a serious and ambitious club seeking to win Prem titles
          All we will ever achieve if he have a team of Elnenys standard, is relegation.

          My compassion, which I HAVE IN DROVES, is for needy people who are poor, helpless, sick, disabled, in trauma and many other categories who REALLY need help! NOT filthy rich and rank poor Elneny!

  2. Elneny can be use during cup games next season in other to give other top players rest.
    You can’t always play your best players every game.
    So spot on elneny
    In MA I trust.
