No Rice bid received

Club insiders have denied a Sky Sports report that a £50m bid has been received for Declan Rice from Chelsea.

Italian Sky Sports Journalist Angelo Mangiante posted an update on Twitter saying Declan Rice is the priority as new centre back for Chelsea. Frank Lampard wants to bring him to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea first official bid is £ 50 million to West Ham. The Chelsea board wants Declan Rice.”

The club continues to insist absolutely no enquires or bids have been made for their 21-year-old defensive midfielder despite daily speculation. They also say he is not for sale and they will resist any offer that is made for their star player.

Chelsea fans have been getting over-excited because Declan Rice is on holiday with Chelsea players Mason Mount, Tammy Abrahams, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori but it means nothing as dozens of Premier League footballers including Ryan Fredericks are on the Greek island of Mykonos.

Rice and Fredericks will report back for pre-season testing on Sunday before the training starts at Rush Green on Monday.

  1. Let’s get this straight. We’ve got no spare money but Rice is not for sale. We’ve got some surplus high earners that nobody seems keen to buy. We are putting in skinny bids for ‘young’ players with little or no premier league experience when we have academy players of the same age who have not been entrusted with a first team spot. Am I missing something or is this the usual preseason nonsense weve become accustomed to.

  2. Just reading Mykonos is the highest Covid rate in Greece and concerns of a lockdown imminent.
    That could put paid to pre season if they all have 2 week lockdown or even contract it.
    Footballers and brains again!
