[OPINION] Roy Keane Should Convince Declan Rice To Join Manchester United

Declan Rice has voiced his appreciation for Manchester United legend Roy Keane, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford. The West Ham captain has been a key role for David Moyes' side and has piqued United's attention as they prepare for a big summer, with midfield signings at the top of their priority list. Rice has been tipped as a player who may replace ex-United veteran Kevin Keane as United's midfield leader, with troubles building in the middle of the pitch at Old Trafford.

When asked if he liked former Arsenal general Patrick Vieira or the former Republic of Ireland international on the Overlap, he told Gary Neville: "Oh, that's a difficult question. Keane. "You know, I feel like I've probably seen him more as a player - even though he was probably at the end of his career when I was a youngster - in terms of clips, how he plays, and how he is as a captain when you hear tales, so sure."

Declan Rice has expressed his admiration for former Manchester United captain Roy Keane.

Despite being in the early stages of his professional playing career, many parallels have been drawn between the 22-year-old and Keane. The former Reds star has already praised Rice and said that he is a better player than he was when he was on the field. In September, Keane told Sky Sports: "He would [help United's midfield], in my opinion. Over the last one or two seasons, I believe Declan has progressed more than any other player I've watched.
