Why Declan Rice is pushing away Manchester United talks

England and West Ham United sensation Declan Rice has talked up his career at West Ham United and pushed away a move to Manchester United for the time being.

The young dynamic holding midfielder broke into the first team last season and has not had to look back since. He is tipped to become one of England’s leading players in the near future.

When asked by FourFourTwo about reports linking him with Manchester United, Rice said: ‘Don’t get me wrong, I think I’ve got the ability to play for a club like that.

‘But it’s all about the timing and I don’t think the timing is right for me at all. I’ve still got so much to learn.

‘I’m loving it at West Ham, the connection between me and the supporters is special. I’ve become one of the fans’ favourites and the manager likes me.

‘It’s the best place for me to play my football.’

He added: ‘I’ve signed a contract here for the next few years and I’m looking forward to playing this season and the season beyond, so we’ll just see where it goes.

‘To be called a West Ham legend in the future, maybe, would be a real honour.’
