Chelsea or Manchester United? A £150 million-rated star decides.

Chelsea and Manchester United have been ruled out of Declan Rice's chosen destination by West Ham United this summer, according to reports.

Rice's asking price has reportedly been increased to a whopping £150 million, and he would prefer to join Chelsea rather than Manchester United, according to the Evening Standard. In what promises to be one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer, Rice has reportedly had his asking price increased to a whopping £150 million.

At the moment, Rice is considered to be one of the best young prospects in international football, though we're not sure if any club would be willing to pay as much as £150 million for him.

Manchester United are in desperate need of a new central midfielder as Paul Pogba's contract is coming to an end and the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay continue to be erratic performers in the middle of the park for the Red Devils.

Declan Rice prefers Chelsea transfer over Manchester United

Still, MUFC may well feel there is better value for money out there, while Chelsea are surely not in a position to be able to get this deal done amid huge uncertainty over their future.

Despite the sanctions on club owner Roman Abramovich, Rice is still seemingly eager to return to the club that let him go when he was a teenager.

All in all, this looks like it’s going to be a complicated deal, with West Ham clearly not ready to lose Rice easily, while the player himself seems picky about where he moves next

Luke Chadwick, a former Manchester United and West Ham United midfielder, recently expressed his delight at the prospect of the 23-year-old joining the Red Devils at Old Trafford.


In an interview with CaughtOffside, Chadwick said, "I think getting someone like Rice through the door is a tremendous statement." "It demonstrates that they are serious about winning the league; it is not a case of working out the most cost-effective solutions, but rather of going for the best of the best," says the coach.
