A host of clubs, including Manchester United and Real Madrid, are keen on Rangers’ 16-year-old youngster Bailey Rice.
According to 90 Min, Bailey Rice has many top admirers, including Manchester United and Real Madrid. The 16-year-old Scottish midfield sensation has been impressing at Rangers. He also became the club’s youngest player to feature in a league game.
One part of a big club’s idea is about evolving in the market using their resources to acquire top players. The other method involves developing young stars from within to test your internal skills and possibly create superstars rather than buy them.
Most top clubs in the recent decade have adopted a mixture of the two methods, and those with the correct balance have succeeded. More sides in the last few years are angling moves for youngsters, looking to pluck them out of clubs to nurture their growth.
Chelsea and Manchester City are among those constantly linked with moves for youngsters. Each club looks to produce their own stars but secretly hope they grow into first-team star and make history.
Scotland, in particular, have lost many top-rated talents right at a young stage. Rangers have another such gem with them in Bailey Rice. But he, too, could be reportedly lured away by big clubs. In the 16-year-old’s case, Manchester United and Real Madrid are some of the clubs interested.
The 16-year-old Scottish midfield sensation became Rangers’ youngest-ever player to feature in a league game. His rise at the academy level has not gone unnoticed, and the club plans to use him more frequently in their first-team squad.
Bailey is a defensive midfielder, already compared to his namesake and England international Declan Rice. The 16-year-old Scottish midfield sensation has many thought he could have a similar impact on his club and Scotland.
Manchester United and Real Madrid want to bring him on in the summer and develop his talents further. Such prospects usually attract players and turn their heads toward a prospective transfer, which could be the case with Rice.
Rangers will fight hard to keep hold of the 16-year-old and see him become a first-team regular in the future. However, they know it is tough to convince a player to reject the overtures of Real Madrid and Manchester United to remain in Scotland.
The future will now tell about Rice’s future at Rangers, although they will surely table a professional contract when he comes of age. For now, the big clubs will monitor his situation before making official approaches.
