Manchester United transfer target Declan Rice has been urged to join Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
BBC pundit Danny Mills believes West Ham midfielder Rice would improve under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, amid interest from United, Man City and other top six sides.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a superb season at the London Stadium, starting 34 games for the Hammers and making his England debut. He’s viewed as an ideal fit for United and has been picked again by England boss Gareth Southgate for this summer’s Nations League finals.
Mills told Football Insider: “If Man United come knocking for Rice, then Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City could come as well.
“If you’ve got the choice between Man United and two clubs in the Champions League next season, where are you going to go? Not Old Trafford.
“Are you going to improve and develop as a player under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer? Nobody knows. Are you going to improve under Mauricio Pochettino? Yes.
“Man United is not as big a pull as it used to be. There are other teams players would rather play for. Once upon a time, Man United came knocking and off you went.
“A player like Rice, I’m sure he would rather join Spurs than Man United.”
