Declan Rice has rejected two contract offers from West Ham and our sources had made it clear that the England midfielder is admired at Old Trafford.
Whether or not Manchester United can price him away from West Ham this summer is a totally different story, but it now looks like he is signalling his intent to seal a big move away.
This comes from a report via the Telegraph, which names Manchester United and Chelsea as potential suitors for Rice.
Rice wouldn’t turn down a move to one of the so-called big six this summer, though Stretty News understands that the West Ham hierarchy will make it very difficult for him to leave now.
But does David Moyes want a player who would prefer to be playing his football elsewhere? Yeah, probably – as I’m sure most of their players would move if a bigger club came calling.
The Telegraph suggest West Ham want £100m for Rice. Absolutely bobbins!
It is also stated that Rice would be disappointed if they rejected offers in the region of £60m as that would see the player priced out of a dream transfer.
