West Ham expect Chelsea Rice bid

West Ham expect Chelsea to make a bid for Declan Rice over the next two or three days!

As the hype continues over the captain’s move to Arsenal Claret and Hugh has been reporting that both Chelsea and Manchester City could become contenders.

And it seems that the club which released Declan at the age of 14 are now likely to be in with a bid as new manager Mauricio Pochettino settles in to Stamford Bridge.

Declan Rice has been a Chelsea fan since childhood with his best mate Mason Mount

Declan and his father/agent would probably find the Blues a better bet as that is the team both have supported after Dec’s love for the Hammers of course.

Hammers say Chelsea expected to be in within days

And Claret and Hugh has been told exclusively by our top source at the London Stadium the Stamford Bridge club are on their way in from everything they have heard.

He said – as we suggested we needed a City bid: “We are expecting Chelsea to come in over the next 48 hours or so.”

Should that happen and Pochettino is keener to get the deal done the Hammers could well be in a position to do a big money deal and push for the likes of Conor Gallagher and/or Rufus Loftus-Cheek as a player swap deal.

That would be as good as it gets as far as any Declan Rice departure could be!

  1. I thought Rice wanted to play champions League football? Chelsea aren’t in the champions League. Cmon Declan, time to stop doing what Daddy tells you.
