According to the SunSport, his performance against Man Utd in Sunday’s 1-0 clash left Ten Hag in awe after the defeat.

A source said: “Rice is fast emerging as United’s number one summer target.

“He completely ran the game and United’s coaching staff and scouts were all talking about him after the match.

“There’s a growing belief that Rice is interested in leaving at the end of the season and United believe they simply have to ensure he heads north and not to Arsenal or Chelsea.

“The club considers him a player they could potentially build a team around.”

Rice was seen chatting after the game with England team-mate Marcus Rashford, with the United attacker asking for the Hammers’ captain’s shirt.

The source added: “Declan is good friends with Marcus and Luke Shaw from England.

Man Utd believe they can persuade Rice that his future lies with them in Manchester.

“It would be a massive sign of intent and a great way for any new owners to show they are determined to try and match Manchester City in the years ahead.”
