As a result, the transfer fee of the 22-year-old defensive midfielder would be around £50 million instead of £80 million.
DECLAN RICE TO MOVE AWAY FROM WEST HAM?
It seems Declan Rice finally would find himself playing at a bigger club now. The English international has played 19 matches for The Hammers with an assist to his name.
However, it would be a difficult situation to leave the club where currently he is a captain. Also, moving to a different club won’t guarantee that he’ll be a regular starter, which he is currently enjoying at West Ham.
The transfer fee is decreasing due to the current pandemic situation. However, it has attracted big clubs across England!
Manchester City and Chelsea are interested in buying new center-backs. Hence, the versatile midfielder who played as a defender in the youth could be the best option. However, Manchester United and Liverpool consider him as a midfielder and are also interested in signing him.
Rice’s father Sean is currently his agent and the clubs might have to negotiate with him. However, the former Stamford Bridge ticket collector might pave way for his son for a move to London club.
Hence, Rice has good chance of joining the Frank Lampard headed club. However, it would be interesting if the Blues spend more money on transfers after spending almost £200 million in the previous transfer window.
Anyway, it’s going to be a tough choice for the talented youngster to make. He would not like to compromise for not being a regular in the new team.
