England international Declan Rice is unhappy that he is being priced out of a dream move this summer.
Rice has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, and Manchester United are also monitoring developments as they step-up their search for a world-class defensive midfielder.
However, West Ham have slapped a £100 million transfer on the head of the former Chelsea academy player, effectively meaning he will not be going anywhere in the current window.
He has been offered a new improved deal at the East London club, but Rice has no intention of agreeing to fresh terms and still hopes he may be able to force a way out before deadline day.
The 22-year old is under contract at West Ham until 2024, although his current deal does include the option for a further year.
He has ambitions of winning trophies and playing Champions League football, something he is unlikely to do, he believes, in hs current environment.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
