Declan Rice Will Be Offered A New Contract By West Ham After His Sale Frees Up Cash For Man United And Chelsea

Declan Rice will reportedly be offered a new contract by West Ham to ward off interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, with the Hammers using funds freed up by Felipe Anderson’s departure to do so.

Anderson, a 28-year-old Brazilian flop, arrived in Lazio on Wednesday, edging closer to a reunion with his former club. He joined West Ham from Lazio in 2018 on a four-year agreement of PS42 million.

Anderson has not delivered in East London, and the Hammers have accepted a PS5 million bid from Lazio for the attacker, a hefty PS37 million loss.

According to The Sun, West Ham are planning to offer Declan Rice a lucrative new contract deal. The 22-year-old had his greatest season with the Hammers, finishing sixth. Nevertheless, Anderson’s departure will free up critical monies to help ensure the future of midfielder Rice.

The 22-year-old midfielder shone for England during their successful Euro 2020 campaign, and his exceptional performances for the Three Lions have increased the importance of extending his contract.

Rice has already turned down two additional lucrative West Ham bids, but the estimated PS100,000 weekly salaries recovered from Anderson’s transfer could help get a deal done.

Rice was a key member of Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions as they advanced to the Euro 2020 final. He has three years left on his current contract, with a fourth year option, and West Ham manager David Moyes has already indicated that his star player is worth more than PS100 million.

‘I disagree with the owners’ assessment that Declan Rice is worth PS100 million.

PS100 million is a pittance in comparison.

‘Much more,’ he said in March to Sky Sports.

‘I look at the players who have joined various clubs from other countries and haven’t had anywhere near the impact Declan Rice has.’

‘I wouldn’t put a monetary value on it.’

Rice’s performances have received interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, with former Blues coach Frank Lampard a major admirer.’ And Felipe Anderson’s approaching departure will free up PS100,000 per week in salaries Rice’s performances have attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, with Felipe Anderson’s imminent departure freeing up PS100,000 per week in wages Rice’s performances have attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, with Felipe Anderson’s

In 2020-21, the Hammers had one of their best seasons in the Premier League, with Moyes leading them to a sixth-place finish, a surprising feat given that they had only avoided relegation the season before.

Moyes has moved away from previous generations’ mega-money buys, and his astute use of the transfer market – bringing in players like Tomas Soucek, Jesse Lingard, and Craig Dawson – has given Hammers fans hope for the future.
