Rio Ferdinand, BT Sport analyst, believes Manchester United do not have an elite defensive midfielder like other clubs, resulting in easy conceding goals. Therefore, the name Declan Rice of West Ham. If acquired, will solve the problem completely.

United before Saturday’s home match against Everton, has kicked 9 matches. Every item has one clean sheet, with the 4-2-3-1 system. That Ole Gunnar Solskjaer uses to switch the front of the central midfielder. Between Fred, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic or Paul Pogba, it’s rarely the same.

At this point, Ferdinand sees that it is not equal to those of the big camps. If the quality engine room is successfully dealt with, ‘Red Devils’ will reduce the loss of goals and work more consistently.

“United didn’t keep enough clean sheets, that’s the problem. Because there are no defensive players to balance the team structure. If found, it can opene to allow more creativity,” the former United centre-back opened up. 

“Players like Carrick, Fabinho, Fernandinho, Claude Makelele, Sergio Busquets. These are the elite in that area – United don’t have players of that level. that” 

“The best first 11 in my opinion when everyone is fit is De Gea – Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Varane, Shaw – Fred, Pogba – Greenwood. D, Bruno, Rashford – Ronaldo.” 

“Our fans are all calling for a defensive midfielder. One of the names that is often spoken of is Declan Rice. And I’m sure the next market will be a lot more tossing around.” 

Incidentally, ‘The Hammer’ has set a selling price for Rice at no less than 90 million pounds, making United do not dare to bother in the past summer market.
