REVEALED: Why West Ham rejected £100MILLION bid for Declan Rice

February 6th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Manchester United reportedly saw a £100MILLION bid for West Ham captain Declan Rice rejected last summer, according to The Sun.

The Hammers skipper, 24, has been heavily linked with a host of top six clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal.

But it was Man Utd who were leading the race to sign him ahead of the 2022/23 season as they looked to bolster the centre of their midfield.

They eventually landed on Brazilian Casemiro, 30, as he arrived at Old Trafford from Real Madrid for £70m.

But according to talkSPORT, United were not so lucky when it came to their mammoth offer for Rice as West Ham turned down £100m.

And the reports are that it will take £120m plus add-ons to secure the England international this summer.

That is despite his contract expiring in 2024.

Rice is being closely monitored by both Arsenal and Chelsea as they prepare to do battle for the Kingston-born midfielder at the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta‘s men see him as a long-term replacement for Thomas Partey or Granit Xhaka – despite the arrival of Jorginho in the January window.

And Chelsea are keen to strengthen in the middle of the park, especially following the departure of Jorginho to the Gunners.
