West Ham Name Price For Declan Rice As Chelsea And Man Utd To Bid

West Ham United have reportedly slapped an £80m valuation on Declan Rice amid rumours that Chelsea and Manchester United could make a move for their star midfielder this summer.

After a stellar campaign with the Hammers last season, as well as reaching the Euro 2020 final with England, the 22-year-old midfield maestro looks sure to attract lots of attention this transfer window.

And that attention looks to have been heightened after Rice allegedly rejected the chance to sign a new contract at West Ham - with both Manchester United and Chelsea believed to be interested in securing his signature.

There have been some suggestions that Hammers manager David Moyes has valued the midfielder in excess of £100m, but according to Eurosport, the capital outfit would consider offers in the region of £80m.

Rice has shone for the Hammers since his debut back in 2016 and has established himself as a staple for Gareth Southgate in the England team, hence the interest from some of England's biggest clubs.

Intriguingly, Rice spent time with Chelsea's academy earlier in his career with his best friend Mason Mount before he was released as a teenager.

And it seems Mount is keen on his childhood pal making the switch to Blues, too, as he FaceTimed Rice following their historic Champions League in Porto in May to show off his winner's medal, according to The Athletic.

Rice, who is contracted to the Hammers until June 2024, has made 145 appearances for the east London outfit in all competitions, scoring five goals, as well as assisting five in the process.

Since then, as reported by the Telegraph, Rice has turned down two lucrative West Ham contracts and is expected to wait for either Manchester United or Chelsea to formalise their long-standing interest in him. But will it be for the Hammers' £80m asking price?
