Butt questions Man Utd interest in West Ham midfielder Rice

Manchester United Treble winner Nicky Butt has questioned their interest in West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

Butt left his job as United academy director earlier this year.

He told Ladbrokes: “For me, next season has to be about getting some silverware back in that trophy cabinet.

“It's about getting the right players who will allow you to challenge for trophies. It's a winning club, so we can't go this long without silverware.

“I think Man United are solid enough in midfield. I keep hearing things about Declan Rice, but is he a better player than Scott McTominay?

“I'm not sure; I think with McTominay, Paul Pogba and obviously Bruno Fernandes, we're in a good place in the middle of the park."
