The £80m question – the fans respond

ClaretandHugh reported exclusively yesterday that the Hammers have a minimum price tag of £80 million on Declan Rice and are very much in the  “unwilling sellers” category.
Here’s how CandH followers responded to the news at https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/
O Sadly, there are clubs that can afford that price 
O The more things change, the more they stay the same…
O He’ll be off whatever the price. It’s not about money, it’s about trophies and titles.
O If he’s not for sale, why put a price tag on him? And especially one a lot of clubs could afford and will pay…. If you’ve got to put a price tag on him, but also dissuade clubs from coming calling make it £250 mil.

O Don’t disregard the pay hike he’d get. Isn’t he on something like £30k per week? He would earn over £150k per week if he moved. His best pal Mount plays for Chelski. He’ll be on his move soon.

O Putting a price tag on Rice shows the zero ambition of the club, rather than building a side around the best talent we have produced since Lampard, Carrick and Cole.

O What do Chelsea need him for – they’ve already got Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour who would be in direct competition for the Defensive Midfielder berth plus Reece James who can play there too (and he’s very impressive!)

  1. Agree with the comment about putting a price tag on him shows a complete lack of ambition. With that attitude might well sell anyone when someone show san interest .Unless the club shows ambition what is the point ?
