Manchester United should drop their interest in West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice, Nicky Butt has said. He recently revealed that the club should be fully focused on signing Raphael Varane this summer.
According to him, United already have their own Rice in McTominay, so Ole must concentrate on getting the right players to take his team to the next level.
He added that he is not sure Rice is better than Scott right now, and a partner for Maguire is of greater importance at the moment.
His words, “For me, next season has to be about getting some silverware back in that trophy cabinet.”
“It’s about getting the right players who will allow you to challenge for trophies. It’s a winning club, so we can’t go this long without silverware.”
“I think Man Utd are solid enough in midfield. I keep hearing things about Declan Rice, but is he a better player than Scott McTominay?”
“I’m not sure; I think with McTominay, Paul Pogba and obviously Bruno Fernandes, we’re in a good place in the middle of the park.”
“The biggest thing that needs addressing for me at Manchester United this summer is that centre-back position; we need a partner for Harry Maguire,”
“Everyone talks about Raphael Varane. I understand he’s a little bit older than most people would perhaps like, but you just have to go back to the days of Teddy Sheringham.”
“I think we bought him when he was 32, and we went and won the treble with him. If Varane is available, then I’d go all out for him.”
