Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly offering as much as £70 million for Declan Rice but the English midfielder does not seem to be bothered about the speculations regarding his move to Manchester United. He has even dismissed all such speculations, labeling them as “all talk”.
Notably, Rice was selected in the England national team after he put up impressive performances turning for the West Ham club in the Premier League.
West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini had earlier stated that the club could be forced to sell the 20-year-old player if the price was right.
Meanwhile, Manchester United, who are struggling at the bottom half of the table, are ready to spend as much as £70million for Rice once the January transfer window opens. However, the West Ham star is not concerned about the rumours and unconfirmed reports about his future.
“I signed a five-year contract with West Ham last year, which will keep me at the club till I’m 24,” Rice told the Daily Mail as quoted by Fox Sports Asia.
“And for me this is the best place to be right now. I am playing for a manager who has given me my chance and played me week in, week out.
“It’s all talk until something happens – and nothing has – so I’m just focused on West Ham, doing my best and making the fans happy,” he concluded.
