Rice impressed in midfield again and has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the London Stadium to Old Trafford.

And legendary United captain Keane believes the former Ireland international would be a good addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

He told Sky Sports: “I think Declan’s improved as much as any player over the last one or two seasons.

“I know he’s been linked with Man United and if you’d have asked me a year or two ago, I would have thought give him another year or two in terms of maturing.

“I look to where I was when I was 22,” the ex-Man United captain continued. “I think he’s way ahead of me when I was 22.

“I think the next step will come when he’s playing at a higher level, Champions League, competing for trophies.

“He’s obviously a regular for England. There’s a lot more to come from him.”

And after the game Man United fans were begging the club to sign him on social media as they insisted he was ‘the missing piece’ in the team.

One supporter tweeted: “Declan Rice is the missing piece between Man Utd and the Premier League title.”

Another wrote: “I thought Declan Rice was excellent for West Ham today. He would be ideal for United.

“He’s very good in possession. His quick decision-making coupled with that burst of acceleration means he’s difficult to close down.

“He’s also got great passing, good in the air and is a leader.”

And one simply tweeted: “Declan Rice come to United. Now.”
