Declan Rice transfer saga: The West Ham ace will be sold this summer if a £100 million offer is made to David Sullivan according to talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan.
The 22-year-old has fully established himself as a vital player for both the Hammers and the England national team over the past couple of years.
He is undoubtedly the most important player David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.
The West Ham fans absolutely love Rice.
So it was a real blow for the Hammers faithful when the news broke yesterday that the 22-year-old had rejected two new contract offers from the East London outfit (The Telegraph’s Matt Law).
Losing the defensive midfielder would be an absolute disaster. David Moyes will surely do everything in his power to keep him at the London Stadium.
Declan Rice transfer saga – Simon Jordan weighs in
The West Ham fans will be praying that the 22-year-old does end up committing to a new long-term deal with the club.
Simon Jordan reckons that David Sullivan would sell Rice without a moment’s hesitation, however, when speaking to talkSPORT this morning:
“David Sullivan would sell his Grandmother for the right price. Declan Rice is an outstanding player. A player West Ham have the right to control the destiny of because they’ve put themselves in a decent position contractually. If somebody wants to buy Rice for the right amount of money, the transfer will happen if it meets the expectations of what West Ham can do with that money. If somebody comes through the door and wants to pay £100 million for Rice I guarantee you they’ll sell him.”
He’s got a point to be fair!
If one of the mega clubs come in with a £100 million offer for Rice, it’s hard to envisage a scenario where the midfielder stays in East London.
There’s something that just doesn’t feel right about this whole scenario. There have been no concrete reports regarding bids coming in as yet…
It may well only be a matter of time, however. And then Sullivan’s resolve really will be tested to the limit.
