Declan Rice will be playing in Manchester sooner rather than later according to the odds on offer at Marathon Bet. Whether that's for Man Utd or Man City is anyone's guess, but there is money to be made if you can make the correct prediction.

Declan Rice has risen rapidly at West Ham where he broke into the first team in the 2018-19 season and earned his first cap for England. The 20-year-old was voted West Ham United Young Player of the Year in 2016-17 and 2017-18 and has seen his value rise to approximately €50 million.

Declan Rice transfer rumours and speculation has gone into overdrive in recent months with the Hammers resigned to losing one of their most promising assets. Rice can play in defence or defensive midfield with his versatility a real asset.

Declan Rice Club After Summer Transfer Window Betting Odds


Manchester United are favourites to sign Declan Rice at Marathon Bet but it's a close call with rivals Manchester City. All of the top Premier League clubs are understandably looking at Rice while a move overseas is also a possibility with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Man Utd are apparently considering a £70 million bid to sign Rice in the January transfer window so a deal could happen shortly. Man City are in desperate need of defenders and have the financial clout to match their cross city rivals.
