Declan Rice has been told to ignore Manchester United’s achievements because they are going through a huge transition period.


A little about the topic

The English player has been warned of a senseless potential move to the Red Devils by former West Ham defender Anton Ferdinand, who says he should only leave if a title-challenging club comes along. The England international has earned a reputation as one of the best midfielders in English football over the past few years, helping West Ham emerge as the top four contenders in the process. The English midfielder’s stellar performances have not gone unnoticed as Man Utd and Chelsea are reportedly looking to get him into their books this summer, but Anton doesn’t think Old Trafford would be the best place for him to continue developing.


What did Anton say about Declan Rice?

The Hammers are currently only two points behind sixth-placed Man Utd in the PL and still have the game in hand while also competing in the Europa League semi-finals. Anton doesn’t think Manchester United would be a big step up for Declan at the moment, with Ten Hag to start rebuilding work at Old Trafford when he arrives from Ajax in the summer. Anton Ferdinand said that Manchester United is not the place to go right now. They are going through a huge transition period.

According to Ferdinand personally for him, if he is Declan Rice, Manchester United is not the place he would go. Anton will wait a couple of years and see what Erik ten Hag does. Can he implement what he did at Ajax at Manchester United and make them look more like a team that can challenge. Otherwise, what’s the point of leaving West Ham somewhere they’re not even trying to get a title. It is difficult for them to get to Europe. That’s what West Ham do – it’s hard to get into the Champions League.

Ferdinand says they have something to build on. He’d be in the same place in the red devils and all he’ll get is the growth of the football club. Anton himself, as a footballer, will not go somewhere just because it is a bigger club. He has everything in the club where he is loved and he is the main person. At Manchester United, he will be one of many. While they can stay at West Ham and challenge Europe and be the main man.

Anton added that he personally would rather stay than join Man Utd. But if it was one of the teams that were fighting for the league and they came up with the money, it would be hard for West Ham to keep him. As Anton Ferdinand already said, if he went as fans they would appreciate what he did for the club. He was always loved and called a legend. And according to Anton, if they get £100m plus for him and it goes back into the lineup, then they can’t grumble.
