WEST HAM HAS PUT A £70 MILLION PRICE TAG ON DECLAN RICE. MANCHESTER AND CHELSEA ARE AMONGST THE INTERESTED CLUBS.
Old Trafford was deeply interested in Hammers centre-back since last season. Ole’s backline needs such a young talent to strengthen their defending nature. The 21 years England international Declan Rice holds a price tag of £70 million which is worth it. The current financial instability caused by the pandemic crisis discuss the price tag and put the space for debate on it.
Declan Rice is a part-time defensive midfielder who has been vital in the formation of Hammers for the last two seasons. David Moyes is highly dependent on the service of a youngster. He is quite impressive with his stats in East London.
West Ham doesn’t want Rice to leave the team camp even though he can bring a lot of money to Hammers. They are currently asking £70 m for the star which is little more than the current market value of the player.
David Moyes is making a challenging formation around him in West Ham United. So at least he wants the player to stay. But the team management hadn’t said anything about the exit of the player. Declan Rice is committed to Hammers till 2024. If a transfer will happen it will be record signing in England.
Manchester United has not shown a symptom of bargaining on the player. But the problem is that they need more signings in the rest of the position with the limit of spending. Also, they can’t just pour money into the transfer market like the previous windows. The situation is not stable in European financial stream as well as around the world.
If Ole can sign the player this summer, it is pretty sure that the player will cross the £100 million line within a couple of seasons in Old Trafford. If Red Devils lose the deal, they might be regretting in the future. Along with United, Chelsea is also targeting the player (Daily Mail). Frank Lampard is also gathering most of the young talents from Europe to build a strong Chelsea side.
Bleacher Report says that the United won’t agree to the sum of £70 or near to that range for the youngster. Last week, United chief Ed Woodward stated the support to Ole Gunner Solskjaer to fulfill his wishlist in the Summer transfer window. The club has not confirmed the withdrawal from the deal and the following days will be crucial.
Declan Rice has made 30 appearances this season altogether in England and carries a decent stat sheet with eye attracting performances in midfield. Moving to the 20 time Champion side will be a great decision for the future for him. Due to the lack of consistent young talents in the backline of Red Devils, the player can make a stage to set his show in a flexible manner.
The pandemic affected market is fluctuating day by day. Although, the race for promising talents is continuing in the ‘lockdown’ world of football. Manchester United should take the business seriously on Declan Rice and respond in a professional manner. Because they will regret later if the player should be caught by one of the ‘Big six’ of Premier League.
