The Red Devils did not sign a new central midfielder in January despite a host of speculation but will allegedly prioritise improving in that area of the field ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
The report, though, claims that Man United will focus their attention on signing a new midfielder this summer and view Rice as a leading target.
Recruitment meetings will allegedly be held each month with interim head coach Ralf Rangnick, who is expected to have a say on incomings when he takes on a consultancy role at the club this summer.
Rice, who has a contract at London Stadium until June 2024 with the option of an additional 12 months, has scored three times and registered four assists in 28 appearances for David Moyes's side this term. body check tags ::
