West Ham United manager David Moyes doesn’t want his club to sell star player Declan Rice this summer. The England international has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United in the past and both clubs are still monitoring the development of Rice. If it was up to Moyes West Ham would not sell Rice at any price.
“I don’t agree with the owners that Declan Rice is a £100m footballer. Far, far more than £100m. Far, far more. I certainly wouldn’t put a price on it. You can decide which figure you want to put on it but I wouldn’t be sanctioning anything like that, that’s for sure.”
“Do we need the Champions League to keep Declan? No, because Declan is under contract first and foremost, so he can’t go anywhere no matter what, and I keep saying it and I hope people know that when I say something, I mean it. We’ve not had an offer for Declan Rice and I hope we don’t get one. And you’ve got an idea now of where we’d need to be if it was even going to be considered, certainly be me.”
“Declan seems very settled and in fact he is captaining West Ham, he plays for England, and I want to keep Declan thinking that his ambitions can be achieved here at West Ham and I will have to keep pushing that and keep pushing that with the owners as well. For me, I have watched the prices of some players who have gone to clubs recently and they could not lace Declan Rice‘s boots.”
