Declan Rice will not be sold until West Ham receive a ‘massive offer’ from Chelsea. , according to rumors.
After numerous strong performances throughout the 2020/21 season, the England defensive midfielder is gradually becoming the face of the East London club. Declan Rice will not be sold until West Ham receive a ‘massive offer’ from Chelsea.
The 22-year-old was one of the most talked-about players throughout the summer transfer window, with Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City all showing interest.
According to the Guardian, West Ham would be unlikely to turn down a ‘massive offer’ for Rice.
The figure, according to Football London, must be at least £100 million for the Hammers to consider selling the midfielder.
Rice has become an England international in recent seasons, and Hammers manager David Moyes is keen to keep him.
Rice was praised by his coach after scoring the club’s second goal of the evening in West Ham’s 2-0 Europa League win over Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday 16 September.
“It’s his ability to rush away from people – the power and speed,” Moyes explained.
“It’s a fantastic quality, and we’d like to see him use it more often.” He got a scolding since he doesn’t score nearly enough goals.
“He’s starting to stand up, and we’ll have another terrific goalscoring midfielder on our hands.”
Chelsea made a loan offer for Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez this summer, despite West Ham’s frantic desire to keep the teenager.
Rice, on the other hand, has previously stated that he would welcome the opportunity to return to the club he departed in 2014, especially given his strong friendship with fellow England player Mason Mount.
