According to former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino, Declan Rice’s rice performance in West Ham’s 2-1 win over Leeds United on Friday night “stunk of a Manchester United signing”.
The England international impressed in West Ham’s 2-1 victory over Leeds United at Elland Road.
Chelsea were heavily linked with a move for the 21 year old midfielder during the summer transfer window but a move to Stamford Bridge failed to materialise.
“Declan Rice was superb. He absolutely ran the show in midfield,” Cascarino is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
“He was up against Kalvin Phillips as well, who is a good player. I thought he just took the game by the scruff of the neck.
“He just stunk of a Manchester United signing to me. I was sat there thinking, ‘Wow!’”
