Manchester United transfer target turns down third new contract offer

Posted by

Manchester United transfer target Declan Rice has turned down a third contract offer at West Ham and is open to a move this summer.

Rice is a transfer target of Manchester United, according to the Daily Mail, but a £150m price tag may have been a stumbling block in any deal away from the club.

Now, Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Rice has turned down a third contract offer, and is open to a move this summer, as seen in the tweet below.

Although West Ham were originally demanding £150m for the midfielder, they may be forced to accept a lot less to avoid him leaving on a free transfer.

If Rice continues to turn down new contract offers, he will eventually be able to leave on a free, so West Ham may sell him this summer to avoid this situation.

However, it’s unlikely anyone will be willing to pay £150m, so the London club could accept a smaller fee this summer.

Manchester United will be in desperate need for a midfielder this summer, with Nemanja Matic asking to leave, and Paul Pogba out of contract.

  1. West Ham will not accept a smaller fee. That has been made clear, By the way this is old news -and where did it come from ? Rightio. Keep trying to push the declining club. Never mind do another Rice story tomorrow. 150 MILL MINIMUM IT IS. If Rice keeps refusing a new contract and is still playing for West Ham- fine who cares. Even ex pros are registering their views on the topic.

  2. If he wants to go West Ham are bigger than one player, they made him what he is today, he should respect that, really disappointed if this is his attitude or more likely his agent
