Rice: “He REALLY is not for sale”

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s reported hopes of taking Declan Rice back to Stamford Bridge have just taken a massive nosedive.

After yet another day of media speculation which has suggested that Lampard is trying to raise £65 million to make a bid, the Hammers have made it crystal clear the inspirational 21-year-old is going absolutely nowhere.

In past conversations we have had with our sources there has always been given a ‘get out’ of a price tag being mentioned or that the only time they expected a bid was if N’Golo Kante is sold by the Blues.

But tonight it became clear that minds have been made up – COVID or not – that the inspirational hammer of the Year is staying at the London Stadium.

In response to the question of whether we could take the news of Lampard’s hopes seriously we were given an uncompromising answer by a top Hammers insider.

We were told by email: “Let’s make this as clear as possible: “He REALLY is not for sale.”

  1. About time. We need to build dare I say it a very good team around him. Think moyes can.

  2. Agree with Mojen – keep Rice and Hammers can be top 10 in 20-21…

  3. 65million ? Have Chelsea actually watch him ……that doesn’t buy half of him!

  4. But with no official statement from West Ham it is still a Possibility Rice could be moved on .
    Surely if west ham are serious they should tell the speculation merchants that he is Most Definitely Not for Sale .

  5. Payet and Arnie wernt for sale. But went they want to go. Eventually the player gets what he wants. Unfortunately for us

    • I don’t think the fans could tolerate another Chelsea badge Kisser . Hopefully Rice will declare his Loyalty to West Ham at some stage . Strange that he hasn’t if he wants to stop all the media speculation . Just saying 🤷‍♂️
