West Ham spark Declan Rice transfer panic as Man Utd and Chelsea sniff around star | Football | Sport


“If you are interested, well, it will be north of that. £100m was cheap last summer. One hundred and fifty just now would be minimum but he is not for sale. What I do know is that it means there are only certain clubs that could even consider it.”

The Scot – who guided the team to seventh in the Premier League and to a Europa League semi-final last term – compared Rice’s situation to Harry Kane’s at Tottenham. Spurs placed a huge price tag on the England captain’s head last summer amid interest from Manchester City, and Kane eventually remained with the North Londoners. 

Moyes continued: “They (Spurs) said: ‘No, there is a price and if someone wants to pay the price, then we would probably do it. If they don’t then he’s not going anywhere’.

“That’s it. They have kept him. We have got Declan on the best part of a three-and-a-half-year contract. Just like Tottenham have got Kane on a contract. They control what happens.”

Chelsea and Man Utd are keen to sign midfielders this summer and have been linked with Rice. The player featured in 50 games for West Ham last season, scoring four goals and providing five assists.
