West Ham manager David Moyes is adamant the club will not be selling Declan Rice for anything less than £150 million.
“The first thing to say is that he is not for sale,” Moyes said in his pre-match press conference ahead of his team’s clash with Everton at the London Stadium on Sunday. “But if you are interested, well, it will be north of that, because £100m was cheap last summer, and £150m just now would be minimum – but he is not for sale.”
The 23-year-old has become a regular member of the starting XI for England. His quality as a defensive midfielder is formidable despite his best years being well ahead of him, but he’s also valued for his ability to play in the heart of defence in need be.
Chelsea and Manchester United have been credited with strong interest in his services throughout the last few transfer windows, but with his contract set to run until the summer of 2024, the Hammers are firmly in control of the situation and it’s obvious Moyes has no intention of losing one of his best players as he aims to get his team into Europe again next season.
