West Ham To Demand British Record £150m Fee For Declan Rice This Summer

West Ham are set to demand a British record transfer fee of £150m for Declan Rice this summer, according to reports.

Rice, 23, has continued to impress this season and is expected to leave West Ham in the summer transfer window after stalling on signing a new contract at the London Stadium.

The Daily Mail claim West Ham are resigned to losing Rice at the end of the season but will demand a huge fee for the England international, who still has two years remaining on his current deal.

The report claims the Hammers are determined to not sell Rice for anything less than £150m.

The huge figure is £50m more than Manchester City paid Aston Villa for Jack Grealish last summer in a British record transfer.

Manchester United are the current favourites to sign Rice as they look to replace Paul Pogba, who is expected to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer.

Chelsea have also been strongly linked with a move for Rice but the London club are currently unable to sign new players due to the sanctions against owner Roman Abramovich.
