Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, reliable transfer insider Fabrizio Romano said on Declan Rice to Chelsea rumors: “Declan Rice has always been appreciated by Chelsea and also Manchester United.
“If Manchester United go for [Eduardo] Camavinga, I don’t see Manchester United also going for Declan Rice. So they will have to make a decision.
“The price of Rice is also important. West Ham have no intention to making a discount for him. Chelsea have a strong interest in Declan Rice. They like the player. Thomas Tuchel likes the player. We will see if they can find an agreement.
“If they will open an official negotiation with West Ham after last summer it was a complicated one. They’re really interested in Rice.”
Thus, this confirms that both the club and the manager are interested in the England international, who will most likely be starting next to childhood friend Mason Mount in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.
However, the price still seems to be the issue as the West London club don’t want to lose their captain. But we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed and see how this saga plays out.
