Ex-Man Utd star Kleberson tells Declan Rice to join Man City over Red Devils

Former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson has urged Declan Rice to move to Manchester City rather than the Red Devils.

United were interested in the midfielder over the summer, but Ole Gunnar Solskajer was put off by West Ham's request of £100million for his services.

But the Hammers have gone from strength to strength this season with Rice pulling the strings in the middle.

And United have renewed interest in the in-demand Englishman, with United's midfield struggles to continue to mount.

But Kleberson has urged Rice to steer clear of Solskjaer's side, and he should instead move to the blue half of Manchester.

"Declan Rice could play for any of the top Premier League teams. He had a brilliant season last year, a great Euros with England and has started this season incredibly well.

"He’s still young so will continue to grow and become a better player, but already in his career, you can see how much he’s improved and grown up as a midfielder, especially technically.

“The top teams are always looking for players who have Premier League experience and have had strong performances over a long period of time, which is exactly what Declan Rice has had.

"The best teams are always on the lookout for players as they need a big squad due to the number of games that they play throughout the season.

“It would be good to see Declan Rice play for Manchester City.

"They base their play around keeping the ball for long periods of time, which is something that Declan Rice likes to do.

"The style of play that Pep Guardiola creates would be perfect for him.
