Man Utd prepared to offer two players plus cash to hijack Arsenal’s move for Rice

Manchester United is reportedly attempting to disrupt Arsenal’s pursuit of Declan Rice in the current transfer window.

Arsenal has identified Rice as one of their primary transfer targets and has already made multiple offers to West Ham United for his services.

Rice himself is reportedly open to joining Mikel Arteta’s side, which could facilitate a smooth transfer. However, a new challenge has emerged as Manchester United has entered the race for the player.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the Red Devils are willing to include either Harry Maguire or Scott McTominay as part of their offer to West Ham in their bid to outmanoeuvre Arsenal and secure the signing of the London-born midfielder.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We need to act fast and seal the deal for Rice before another club takes him away from our grasp.

The midfielder is one of the best in the league and will certainly make us better, which is why West Ham is looking to earn huge pay before he leaves them.

Although we have other targets for different spots in the team, we must do all we can to win the race for Rice.

It would be embarrassing if we fail to reach an agreement to buy him from the Irons and he moves to Manchester United instead.

  1. I did read that rice’s preferred club was actually Utd .
    170 mil on on him and Kai ,are they actually better than the two players we want to let go ?
    Apart from being younger I see no upgrade whatsoever from both signings especially partey who is probably our only world class player when on form .

    1. 👍on your post but Rice prefers Arsenal. Our only real rival would have been Chelsea. He is happy in London.

  2. I pray we don’t get that Rice for the price.

    United should act fast and snap him up.
    Arteta is a complete waster. The club owner should not trust him and edu with any transfer dealings.

    They wasted fortunes on Viera Lokonga and Joginho already.

  3. Scott McTominay is a very underrated player who has proved very effective for Scotland in a more attacking midfield role where he has scored a number of important goals recently.Physically he is more than a match for Rice and he is at least his equal in terms of pace.He tends to commit himself to tackles when a more measured approach is appropriate, but he is a player I would be delighted to see in an Arsenal shirt.David Moyes will be fully aware of the credentials which his fellow Scotsman has, and I would not be surprised if a deal is concluded between the Hammers and Man Utd.I should imagine Maguire would be reluctant to move to West Ham ,but without regular game time his England position may soon be in jeopardy.

    1. I would gladly have Scott McTominay in an Arsenal shirt than Rice, I struggle to see what Arteta sees in Rice and Caicedo, when when there’s Pasqueta, Onana, Mctominay, Mcginn of Villa,
      United can have him please.

    2. Agree Mctominay is underrated, but i think don’t he’s the best for sides that try to ‘play football’ like utd under eth, or most of the top sides (very much including us). He’s not unskilled, but isn’t great at receiving the ball from the defence and ‘progressing the play’ under pressure, which seems to be the order of the day. I have similar concerns about rice, though I’m informed that’s perhaps not such a big problem for him.
      I could see Mctominay being fantastic for a club like whu (or even Newcastle), so a deal for rice involving him might be very tempting – completely agree there.

  4. I don’t know why I fear for rice moving to arsenal …. I hope a Mudryk situation will not happen again

  5. Why not, waste the transfer budget on 2 players and expect to challenge city next year for the title.

    We need a far better striker than Jesus up top, a threat to score goals, not really his forte’; but hey he presses well I hear.

    Havertz a Chelsea cast off who failed to flatter, and the famous “potential” bait is cast, trying to convince that he will finally reach it with Arsenal.

    We should really do better, never been so unexciting as the 2 coming in for 165 million or more.

  6. There’s a reason why Real Madrid immediately walked away from the table when Chelsea asked for £70m for Havertz. Seems we’re the only ones who believe a Chelsea reject who failed for three successive seasons in England is worth £65m and £250k p/w. Anyway, seems we’ve signed him already. Let’s support him a best as possible while hoping there’s something in him only Arteta and Edu Gasper know

    1. But Arteta and Edu are not the only ones to recognise the talent of Havertz.Successive Managers of the German National team ,who with respect, are far more knowledgeable of football than you or I , consider him a first eleven pick and Havertz himself has asked to leave Chelsea which is hardly surprising given the mess created by the new owner and his entourage who have never kicked a ball in their !ife.In essence ,Havertz is not a reject, a word which seems to be used by many who follow like sheep and cannot argue their case without resorting to derogatory comments.Thousand of knowledgeable Arsenal fans will I am sure distance themselves from the baying minority and give Havertz the benefit of the doubt until he at least has the opportunity to prove what he can do in the red shirt aided and abetted by his new teammates.

  7. United should come and deliver arsenal from imminent blunder by snapping up Rice as soon as possible.
