Report – Hammers’ Rice asking price revealed

West Ham will demand over £100m for Declan Rice if Chelsea make their long-awaited move for the defensive midfielder, per Football.London.

The club received no bids either this summer or last summer, despite various reports claiming there was plenty of interest.

Hopes his advisors may have of the club informing them of bids of £60 million plus have no hope of being received with the club determined on any fee.

The new report claims that the club remain consistent in their insistence that Rice will not leave for anything less than £100m in the transfer window.

He has three years remaining on his current contract and the Irons just aren’t under any pressure to let him go in the summer transfer window.

The Irons also have the option to extend that deal for another year.

There is reported interest from Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United but they may have to break the British transfer record that City set in the summer by spending £100m to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

The Irons, in this case, hold every single ounce of power.

  1. The Irons holding ‘every single ounce of power…??
    I think Declan has more than an ounce of power in determining his own future…..
    Although given his performances so far this year, £100mil. sounds like a bargain if (Big IF) Jack Grealish is worth £100mil.

  2. Every single blooming day of the year, Declan Rice to Chelsea, Declan Rice to Manchester United, Declan Rice to Manchester City, Declan Rice to Liverpool. Yada Yada Yada, bla bla bla, snore snore snore. Now I don’t want us to sell Declan but sometimes I think I’d take a hundred million just to stop the constant blathering about him being sold. I think for a hundred million we could find a defensive midfielder to replace Declan. Maybe one who scores goals too.
