Declan Rice Rejects New Contract With West Ham, Hopes On Joining United Or Chelsea
Declan Rice Transfer – The London team offered their great star a long-term contract
Declan Rice Transfer – West Ham wants to keep their main star, Declan Rice, but Chelsea and Manchester United are fighting for the player, and for now, he remains in the search. According to The Sun, the Hammers offered the Englishman a long-term contract of another eight seasons, at a rate of £200,000 a week, but the midfielder turned down the offer.
The 23-year-old considers it crazy to be involved with the club for so long, which is why he ultimately turned down the offer.

Present and future
Declan Rice had a great season with West Ham vying for the Europa League next season, a competition in which they were eliminated in the ‘semi-finals’. Last summer, he was a mainstay of the English team that reached the Euro 2020 final, attracting the attention of influential clubs like United or Chelsea. The Englishman turned down offers from West Ham for an extension so as not to end up in a situation similar to that of Harry Kane, who signed a long-term contract and is now disappointed with Tottenham.
Stratospheric selling price
Manchester United and Chelsea are the two main candidates to sign Rice next summer, while City is believed to be keeping an eye on his progress. A move to the Blues, where Rice started his sports career, would allow him to play in the Champions League, in addition to chasing titles.
The main problem is the price of the transfer, as West Ham is not in financial difficulties and will not let a player go for less than 150 million euros.
