On and on it goes: Dec in dreary new transfer twist

Declan Rice is again being linked with Manchester United in speculation which is as off the wall as we have ever heard in this  saga down the months.

According to 90min the Old Trafford club will offer one of Jesse Lingard, crock Phil Jones and ageing Nemanja Matic for the Irons crown jewel.

Jones is hardly required anyway given we are going for Craig Dawson and Matic is of no interest whatsoever.

The Hammers midfielder has enjoyed a genuinely brilliant season at the heart of the Hammers midfield and is one of the untouchable members of a team that could be playing Champions League football next season.

He said only a few days ago that this is the best Hammers teams he’s played in and there is no suggestion whatsoever he wants to leave.

A close friend also revealed in one of the many other stories he would have no interest in moving out of London anyway!

In their report 90 mins claim the club are willing to offer one of Jesse Lingard, who is on loan at the Hammers and has made a real impact, Nemanja Matic, or Phil Jones plus cash for the player.

That money would tally up to £50m apparently, which is about half of what Rice is worth and wouldn’t come anywhere close to convincing David Sullivan to talk to the club.

The players would also want over £100k p/w, so we’ll chalk each this one up as absolute nonsense.

Pay it no mind! It’s about as off the wall as anything we have read since this absurd saga began.

  1. Definitely, NO Swapsies…….. I’d like to think that our weak offer accepting days are over. With Moyes at the helm, any deal will be about the football club first and foremost.
    The rumours from sources unknown, and the pundits who have nothing to do with this club, just keep on coming out of the woodwork.
    Declan is the “Real Deal” and will only get better.

  2. Boring…. Move on…. Blah, blah…

  3. i think that is one of the most absurd “stories ” about Declan Rice i have ever read ! And that is saying something. 1

  4. Yeah next it will be Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munchen, …
    Then when news is really slow Celtics will offer their entire team for Rice and Soucek to try and beat Rangers next year 😁

  5. Said it before and will say it again. If and when DR leaves West Ham it won’t be to another club in England. He deserves a crack at chasing honours so the ball is in West Ham’s court. Try to develop a side that can compete regularly in Europe and we have a chance of keeping him. Otherwise he’ll be taking language courses in Espanol or Deutsch.

  6. Just soft, easy option, empty punditry using no skill or insight just a BSc in being a sheep just saying Baa.
