West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has addressed his future amid links of exit from the club. The midfielder is constantly linked with top European clubs.
He has enjoyed another impressive campaign with both the club and country. However, despite the interest of other clubs, West Ham continues to retain the services of their captain.
DECLAN RICE EXIT TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
The midfielder is one of the best midfielders if not the best in the country. He also helped West Ham United reach the Europa League semi-final last season. His impressive performances continue to link him with an exit from West Ham. However, West Ham United have always said that Rice is not for sale. West Ham manager David Moyes also said it will take an extraordinary bid for them to even consider the sale.
According to reports, Chelsea and Manchester United are monitoring his situation. However, they have been put off by the high demands of West Ham United. The club is reportedly demanding around £100m for the sale of Declan Rice. They have set a high price to reportedly scare off interested parties. Declan Rice was playing for Chelsea at a young age. But he was released by Chelsea at the age of 14.
THE ENGLAND INTERNATIONAL IS NOT HAPPY WITH EXIT RUMORS EVERYDAY
The England international is not at all happy with the exit rumors. Rumors of exit seem to be going nowhere any time soon. He said, ” Everyone knows my relationship with the players, the manager. I’ve never once complained. Every time I put on the shirt it’s ‘go out there and give 100 percent’ and whatever happens off the pitch will take care of itself. He also said he was frustrated by the high fees attached to his name.
The midfielder also added, “ There’s stuff sometimes that you see which you obviously don’t want to hear because it’s not really true, in a way. But I can’t control that, all I can do is go on the pitch and play football and be happy.”For the last couple of seasons that is what I’ve done and that is the faith the manager has put in me so all that speculation stuff, that’s what comes with playing good, I suppose.
The midfielder broke into the first team in the 2016-17 season. Since then, Rice has gone on to make 195 senior appearances for the Hammers during his time at the club. He also has made 32 appearances for England’s national team in the process.
