Club Favourite: Manchester United in pole position to sign World-Class No.4 playmaker


West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice who has been linked with a switch to Man Utd and Chelsea has affirmed that he wants to be playing for a team that participates in the Champions League at some point in his career.

The England international has been strongly linked with a switch to either Manchester United or Chelsea, while David Moyes ruled out the departure of a 22-year-old midfielder.

The Hammers are firmly in the race to secure sport for the Champions League, however, Declan Rice has dropped a hint that he could look to join a top-four team should West Ham’s miss out on the UCL next season.

Speaking to BBC’s MOTDx, the 22-year-old said: “To have that Champions League music playing, that’s where I want to be.

“It’s special, I can’t really describe it to be honest. As a kid it’s your dream, first of all to play in the Premier League, but to be competing for the Champions League [as well].

“You know West Ham, people say (we’re) a mid-table club and last three seasons we’ve been battling relegation. But this, what we’re doing now, has always been there. It was just about when. We’re on fire.

“We’re on course to have West Ham’s best ever season in the Premier League. That in itself is an achievement. There’s a great chance that we are going to get some sort of European spot.”

The Hammers sit five points adrift of the top four before while Chelsea and Man Utd are both in a good position to participate in the next season’s UEFA Champions League.
