The Daily Star says United have been linked with Declan Rice over the past 12 months but they have now switched their attention to his England midfield partner.

West Ham's £90m valuation of Rice is believed to be a factor while manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also said to be a big fan of Phillips.

Old Trafford chiefs do not think Rice is worth what would be a club record signing and are now prepared to look elsewhere when it comes to filling the position.

Phillips is said to have been identified as a prime target, with Solskjaer keen to bring in a new defensive midfielder next summer following criticism of Fred, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay this season.
