Dwight Yorke, a former Manchester United player, maintains that Mason Mount was a stronger acquisition for Manchester United than Declan Rice was for Arsenal.
Mount was just acquired by Man United for an alleged £60 million from Chelsea, and Rice is about to leave West Ham United for Arsenal for a rumoured £105 million.
Yorke, meanwhile, thinks Mount will provide more goals to Manchester United than Rice will to Arsenal.
Yorke told BoyleSports, “There is a very apparent reason why Man City pulled out of the Declan Rice signing; they don’t think he is worth £105m.
Rice’s value to West Ham most likely stems from the cost of Enzo Fernandez, plus the fact that he is English raises it by a few million.
“Mason Mount for £60 million is unquestionably a better offer than Rice for £105 million. More goals will be scored by Mount. It is difficult to compare because they play different positions, but Mount is equally talented as everyone else.
