Man Utd yet to enter into talks with West ham over star midfielder



West Ham United haven’t had any conversations with other sides over a potential sale of midfielder Declan Rice, amidst interest from Manchester United and Chelsea, according to talkSPORT’s Jim White.

The Irons star’s future at the London Stadium outfit is under the scanner due to having drawn interest from rival Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United.

Declan, who has three years left on his existing deal, has already knocked back two proposals from West Ham to renew his contract.

Following a campaign in which he helped the Hammers clinch a Europa League spot in the top flight, Declan saw his market price in the European football scene rise even more with a string of brilliant outings for England in the European Championship.

And it is expected that only a bid north of the £100 million mark would convince West Ham to part company with their star.

However, the club are yet to even have any discussions with other clubs over a possible sale of Rice let alone receive any proposals for him.

David Moyes’s side are keen on holding on to the player and at the moment he is looking likely to remain at his current club with no interested teams having made any moves for his services.

It remains to be seen whether any clubs will come forward to test the London outfit’s resolve over Rice in the coming weeks with a suitable offer.
