Big new Rice bidder set to make offer


Rice off to Bayern Munich?


German giants Bayern Munich are reportedly prepared to table a bid for West Ham`s Declan Rice in a deal totalling £95m, with the Bundesliga club having already made contact with the player.

The 24-year-old was named the Hammers’ Player of the Season for a second year running after impressive performances in a side who looked set for a relegation battle during some parts of the campaign.

David Moyes‘s men ended up finishing in a mediocre 14th place in the Premier League and six points clear of the bottom three – although attention for Rice and his teammates now turns to their Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina next week.

According to The Daily Mirror, Bayern Munich are launching a substantial bid to secure the services of Rice in the summer, rivalling the efforts of Arsenal to lure the England international to the Emirates.

It is believed that Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel has been in contact with Rice to confirm the Bavarians’ interest in bringing him to the Bundesliga next season.

The report claims that the German champions are prepared to pay £95m for the midfielder, with Premier League trio Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool also keen on the player.
