Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have joined Manchester United in the race for West Ham United star Declan Rice, according to Bild (h/t The Sun).

The German giants are looking to make changes to their squad in the upcoming transfer window. To that end, Thomas Tuchel has the England international on his radar to bolster the Bavarians’ engine room.

As things stand, Joshua Kimmich has been the Allianz Arena side’s number six for some time now. However, the 28-year-old has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.

The Red Devils are also interested in Rice. But West Ham will not part ways with the midfielder for cheap. The Hammers will ask for around £100 million for their captain.

Having made his way through the youth ranks at the Irons, the English national has developed into one of the best enforcers in the Premier League.

However, the 24-year-old’s current contract with West Ham is only valid until June 2024. Also, the Hammers have not had the best of seasons under David Moyes this time around.

For now, United have Casemiro in their ranks. The Brazil international has added much-needed quality to the Red Devils’ engine room. Erik ten Hag has relied on the 31-year-old for most of the season in the middle of the park.

Unfortunately, in the former Real Madrid star’s absence, the Old Trafford side have not been able to perform at an optimal level. On the bench, we have the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay.

Therefore, we could seemingly do with some cover for Casemiro in the squad. However, Rice is an established player. He will evidently want regular game time at his next club. As such, it remains to be seen whether the 24-year-old will move to Manchester.
