REPORT: John Barnes urges Man United FC to swoop for major £44.5m-valued Chelsea target

Chelsea FC summer target Declan Rice has been linked to Manchester United FC, with English international former professional footballer and manager, John Barnes backing the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side to secure his signature this summer transfer market.

When speaking to BonusCodeBets through TEAMtalk, the ex-Liverpool FC icon has tipped the West Ham United FC star to be a good signing for Manchester United FC.

The 21 year-old English defensive midfielder, Declan Rice’s present Transfermarkt value is £44.5million, which could see the Hammers request a price of similar value if they eventually relegated this campaign.

“Manchester United FC must look to the future and Declan Rice is a good young English sensational player,” John Barnes said. “He would surely be a bargain signing for the Red Devils. Of course, he’s a West Ham star player. From his own perspective if he must move on, I think Manchester United FC would be a good club for him.”

Chelsea FC are looking to strengthen their defense line to possibly fix for the Frank Lampard's side’s defensive issues.

Manchester United FC are showing eagerness on Declan Rice, but John Barnes doesn’t feel like he would get into the first team with Nemanja Matic still at the Old Trafford. This could be a boost for Chelsea FC if the English 21 year-old is looking for regular game time.
