The endless Irons saga which has no truth in it

A senior club insider has again repeated that NOTHING has changed on the Declan Rice front and is unlikeley to do so!

There has been no offer, no enquiry, no discussion with Chelsea, agents or any other club for the 21-year-old who is NOT for sale anyway!

Duncan Wright writing for The Sun continued the tabloid’s ‘ Chelsea want Rice’ campaign by upping the asking price to £80m in a report published yesterday.

Rice was missing from the win against Brentford while he recovers from an ankle injury and yesterday posted a photo of himself working in the gym.

It remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to join the England squad but his absence is not related to transfer rumours which have been recycled all summer.

At this rate, tabloids will be recycling Declan Rice stories with bids in excess of £100m by the time transfer window shuts on 5th October.

  1. Nearly everyone who adds comments seem to recommend additions that are urgently needed before the start of the season. Full backs, centre back cover, midfield playmaker, central striker alternatives have all been suggested. Where else can the funds come from if Rice is not sold? Who will be left to buy if Rice goes as the season is about to begin?

  2. I know we have been told there’s no money I just don’t know what the 2 skin flints do with the money. It’s like a mind game every transfer window they send out messages saying there asking about players and there’s no truth in it.
    It’s all Lies and there really good at it let’s not be foolish here west ham will be buying nothing I do believe they want championship football coz that’s where west ham is going

    • Unfortunately when you are paying the likes of Wilshere the best part of a 100 grand a week on top of God knows how many more awful Pellegrini/Husillos signings the old wallet does take a bit of a battering.

  3. There has been no statement from the board regarding the continuing tabloid saga surrounding Rice . All we have are the words of a “ senior insider “ , whomever that may be .
    The club seriously needs some big money , so where will it come from .

  4. Hmm! Only £184million spent in last two years. Must be a new definition of “skinflints”
