Man Utd wants to sign two most expensive midfielders in England at the same time

West Ham’s Declan Rice and Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham are both on Man Utd’s short transfer list.
Rice and Bellingham caught the eye of coach Rangnick.
Man Utd did not shop in January but talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook thinks that in the next transfer window things will be completely different.
According to The Telegraph, the Manchester club will target Declan Rice in the near future despite facing competition from rivals Manchester City and Chelsea. The 23-year-old continues to shine in his managerial role, having been rated 7.22 by WhoScored this season – just behind Jarrod Bowen (7.27) in West Ham’s squad.
Crook has told GIVEMESPORT that Rice and Jude Bellingham could both be on the Reds’ transfer list next summer as they look to strengthen their midfield. “I think Declan Rice is on their list. I think Jude Bellingham is on their list,” Crook said .
Previously, in November, former England manager Glenn Hoddle also said that Rice was one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League at the moment. “I think Declan Rice is the best player in the Premier League, he’s going to get better and better.”
Again, however, it will be difficult to get Rice out of West Ham, with reports last year suggesting that West Ham value him at around £100m . Meanwhile, it will not be easy for Man Utd to recruit Bellingham because Dortmund will likely not be able to keep Erling Haaland next summer.
