Red Devils legend Roy Keane says Manchester United, Chelsea target ‘way ahead’ of him when he was at his age

Roy Keane believes Declan Rice is ‘way ahead’ of where he was when he was the same age as the England star.

Another Manchester United legend, Teddy Sheringham has compared Declan Rice to Red Devils greats Roy Keane and Michael Carrick.

Keane was full of praise for the West Ham star before their Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

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, 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.”
