Premier League world-class player is reportedly still keen to join Chelsea this summer rather than Manchester United despite the London club’s off-the-field issues, we are talking about Declan Rice.
Rice’s future at West Ham continues to be called into question, with the England international once again enjoying an impressive campaign for the Europa League quarter-finalists.
Manchester United are believed to be interested in the midfielder, but according to the Evening Standard, Rice would still prefer to return to his former club Chelsea.
The 23-year-old, who scored five times and registered four assists in all competitions for the Hammers this season, was released by Chelsea at the age of 14.
West Ham remain determined to keep hold of their star player, with the London club allegedly placing a £150m valuation on his shoulders ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
Rice still has more than two years left to run on his contract at the London Stadium, while David Moyes’s side have the option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.
