Man Utd told England star would be their perfect holding midfielder

Manchester United have been urged to sign a West Ham star who would be their perfect holding midfielder. 

United’s midfield had been criticised in the early part of the new season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men making an inconsistent start in the Premier League so far.

And Sky Sports pundit Jamie O’Hara believes that England star Rice would provide the perfect remedy to those problems.

He told The Debate: “Yeah [United need to strengthen in midfield] hugely. I think they need to go out and buy someone like Declan Rice.

“For me, someone like him is going to change them because what they haven’t got now is the player, like they had [Michael] Carrick, they had [Paul] Scholes, who made the team play, who made them tick.

“They’ve got [Scott] McTominay, they’ve got [Paul] Pogba, they’re attacking. [Nemanja] Matic for me isn’t the player he was at Chelsea and Fred hasn’t done it.

“So for me they need to bring in a CDM who gets on the ball, makes them play and starts attacks.”

A move for a new midfielder could well be on the cards for Solskjaer in the new year, with Matic being strongly tipped to move on, while Pogba’s future also remains unresolved.
