Gary Neville appears to have very mixed views on Declan Rice after  a summer when Manchester United made significant advances for the player.

It may or may not be well known that United were in touch with Mario Husillos on various occasions and serious attempts were made on our resolve in holding on to him.

They were dismissed out of hand, and that remains the case, but more significantly the player himself has made it crystal clear that he has no interest in playing for any other club than West Ham United tight now.

Neville – somewhat arrogantly possibly – continues to discuss whether he would be a good buy for United despite the question clearly not arising.
