West Ham manager David Moyes has insisted Declan Rice is not for sale as he is a crucial player, although he admitted a £150million offer would be the right amount to let the Englishman leave the London club. Rice is a reported transfer target for big European clubs this summer.
Declan Rice rose through the youth academy ranks before breaking through to senior level in the 2017/18 campaign. The England midfielder quickly developed into one of the best defensive players in his position in the Premier League during his time at the London stadium. Rice made 183 appearances for the Hammers while scoring nine goals and nine assists in all competitions.
The midfielder’s defensive prowess and impeccable passing range are additional weapons in his arsenal which make him one of the most coveted players next summer as a Manchester City, Manchester Unitedand chelsea have all been linked with a move for the Englishman this summer. However, David Moyes has ended all speculation by suggesting the West Ham vice-captain is not for sale.
The Scotsman also indicated that a bid of £150m would be the asking price and revealed how the club are taking an example of how Harry KaneThe saga of has evolved over the past summer.
“The first thing to say is he’s not for sale. But if you’re interested it’ll be north of that because £100m was cheap last summer and £150m was pounds just now would be a minimum – but he’s not for sale. I’m looking at what Tottenham have done with Harry Kane, but in a different way,” Moyes told the BBC.
“They said, ‘no, there’s a price and if anybody wants to pay the price, then we probably will. If they don’t, he won’t go anywhere.” he added.
