Chelsea News Live: Thomas Tuchel to battle Man United to sign £70m world-class player

After Thomas Tuchel has been signed by Chelsea Football Club to replace former manager Frank Lampard, he has gone straight to business.

Lampard has been clamoring to sign the West Ham play maker, Declan Rice but it has not been completed since the summer.

Now Manchester United are also in the race to sign £70m-urated Chelsea transfer target by summer.

But with Tuchel back in business, United will have to contend with him.

Manchester United are the latest club to be linked with a potential move for highly rated England midfielder Declan Rice. The Red Devils are preparing for life without Nemanja Matic who could leave the club by summer.
Declan Rice has been on Chelsea radar for a whe now, with former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard bent on bringing the young and talented midfielder to Stamford Bridge.

Declan Rice’s versatility was the major thing that endeared him to Lampard, as the 22-year-old star has the ability to field as a defensive midfielder and also as a centre-back.

As reportedly revealed by ESPN earlier this week, Manchester United are ready to battle Chelsea for the signature of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

The renowned source also claimed that West Ham are only willing to listen to offers for the 22-year-old star if their £70m valuation of the midfielder is met.

With Frank Lampard no longer the manager at Chelsea, the bid to sign Declan Rice might no longer be a two-way battle because Chelsea New manager Thomas Tuchel might not be interested in signing the former Chelsea star.

As reportedly revealed by The Guardian today, Chelsea are likely to drop their interest in signing Rice now that Lampard is no longer in charge.

With things at Chelsea still unclear, Manchester United could be the sole runners for the midfielder’s signature.
