Manchester United have offered £40m plus two players to sign Declan Rice from West Ham this summer, according to reports.
Arsenal have seen two bids rejected for the England international while Premier League champions Manchester City are about to launch an opening bid for him.
But United hope Rice will snub Arsenal – who are set to make a third offer – and last season’s treble winners in favour of a switch to Old Trafford instead.
Rice is thought to be open to ‘any move’ with all three clubs looking to secure his signature and the Hammers looking to receive £100m for their star player.
The Red Devils will bid £40m plus captain Harry Maguire and winger Anthony Elanga in their first offer for Rice, according to reports.
West Ham boss David Moyes is understood to be a huge admirer of Maguire, who is free to leave having lost his place in Erik ten Hag’s starting XI last season.
United have deemed Elanga surplus to requirements too and the 21-year-old Sweden international has also been linked with German club RB Leipzig.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag is set to overhaul his midfield this summer and United are hoping to complete a deal for Mason Mount – who is close friends with Rice.
United have reached a breakthrough in talks with Chelsea and are close to agreeing a £60m move for him.
In terms of outgoings, Fred is rumoured to be on his way to Fulham while United are trying to offload Scott McTominay, who has attracted interest from two Premier League clubs.
