After enjoying an impressive year for West Ham last season, Declan Rice has quickly become a staple in Gareth Southgate’s England side in recent games.
The 20-year-old made 38 appearances across all competitions in the previous campaign, and was handed his Three Lions debut in March of this year.
His form has seen speculation linking him with a big-money move to Manchester United in the future, with The Daily Express even claiming West Ham would be putting a £100m price tag on his head.
In EURO 2020 qualifying action against the Czech Republic on Friday night however, Rice failed to really show why he is reported to be worth so much in the transfer market.
The 20-year-old struggled to impose himself on the game, and often saw the home side’s midfield overwhelm him. The Hammers prospect made no interceptions or tackles in the entire game as Southgate’s men slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat.

After seeing Rice’s display, United fans flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts on their club’s reported transfer target.
Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted they couldn’t exactly see what the 6 foot 1 man actually brought to the table.
Some Red Devils fans revealed they felt he would be a complete “waste of money”, and would much rather see the club’s own academy prospects given a chance to shine.

At least we didn’t buy Rice looks well off the pace # MUFC

Rashford’s form has dipped big time. I won’t buy Rice for £10m. Ole better not go there. There are a million DMs out there way better than him and more affordable. Would rather promote Garner. #mufc #CZEENG

Declan Rice would be a massive waste of a lot of money. Not at the level people seem to think he is. I’d sooner United played Axel in a holding midfield role than pay 85 million for mediocrity #MUFC #CZEvENG

Am I missing something with Declan Rice? Whenever I see him play he’s bang average. Plays the safe pass all the time. There were rumours we’re willing to pay 100 million for him. I wouldnt pay 100 pound for him. No thanks. #CZEENG #England #MUFC
