Fabrizio Romano fires back at David Moyes after Declan Rice claims

The Italian journalist is highly respected in his field.

So it could be argued that David Moyes was perhaps being slightly disrespectful with his comments regarding Romano’s Rice claim.

And the Italian responded emphatically:

“West Ham insist he’s untouchable” literally in the same tweet… and he never denied that Declan turned down the proposal – because it’s true :).”

It’s a fair comment from Romano in all fairness.

The crux of the matter, however, is that West Ham still hold all the cards.

Fabrizio Romano suggested that Declan Rice hasn’t signed a new deal with West Ham. That might be true, but the Hammers are still in a strong position. We are in no hurry to sell Dec.

And who knows…if the West Ham board back Moyes to the hilt in the summer window, then Rice may well hang around for the foreseeable future.
