EPL Berbatov warns Manchester United against signing Arsenal, Chelsea target. Dimitar Berbatov, a former attacking midfielder for Manchester United, has cautioned his old team against making a’strange’ transfer approach for West Ham captain Declan Rice during the summer transfer window, arguing that they already have Casemiro.
Rice is eager to leave West Ham at the end of the current campaign and has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Chelsea in the summer.
The 24-year-old is not interested in renewing his contract with the Hammers.
The key distinction between Declan and Casemiro, according to Berbatov for Betfred, is that one of them is 24 years old while the other is 30.
Declan Rice will undoubtedly be sought after by teams, and his top demand from a new team will be the assurance that he will play.
If he joined Manchester United, he would demand to play and would not be content to watch from the sidelines.
He said, “He won’t go to Manchester United if he thinks he would be Casemiro’s backup.
Given that Manchester United recently acquired Casemiro from Real Madrid, the purchase of Declan Rice would seem odd.
