Ole Gunnar has tried the double pivot with Fred and Pogba, McTominay and Fred, Matic and Fred, Pogba and Matic, McTominay and Pogba. Therefore, it must be stated that these partnerships have had a lot of flaws, and Manchester United is still expected to attempt to sign a defensive midfielder in January. On the other hand, Declan Rice's recent performances this season is proof that he's good enough to solve Manchester United's defensive midfield (DMF) problem.

On the other hand, note that Rice has shown that he's a good leader in the middle of the pack so, he's going to provide a lot of coordination to Manchester United's midfield.

The 22-year-old English player is known for his great ability to win the ball has shown a lot of improvements this season by adding goal scoring to his game. The defensive midfielder has already scored two goals this season with West Ham. He got a goal against Dinamo Zagreb and Rapid Vienna in the Europa League. The midfielder has missed only West Ham United's EFL cup game this season. This profile perfectly suits Manchester United.
