West Ham 'offer Declan Rice huge EIGHT-YEAR contract' to ward off Man Utd and Chelsea

Declan Rice has been offered a new eight-year contract to stay at West Ham, according to reports. It is claimed the England midfielder has been given the chance to more than treble his wages to £200,000 a week.

Rice is currently on around £62,000 per week at the London Stadium. He has rejected all offers of a renewal so far amid interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

But talkSPORT have sensationally claimed the Hammers have made another attempt to keep hold of the 23-year-old. The report says West Ham are ’99 per cent’ certain they will not sell Rice this summer.

Rice has been given the chance to pen a deal to keep him at the club until 2030. The £200,000-a-week contract would rise with inflation across the length of the deal.

Rice spent time in the academy at Chelsea before being released at the age of 14. The Blues have long been linked with a move to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.

United also hold a long-standing interest in the player. He remains a target for the Red Devils ahead of the arrival of Erik ten Hag as manager this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes last month insisted Rice was not for sale. And he claimed the club would not accept an offer of £150m or less.

Moyes said: “The first thing to say is that he is not for sale. If you are interested, well, it will be north of that.

“One hundred was cheap last summer. One hundred and fifty just now would be minimum but he is not for sale. What I do know is that it means there are only certain clubs that could even consider it.”

Moyes compared the situation to Tottenham refusing to budge on their stance not to sell Harry Kane last summer. He added: “They said, ‘No, there is a price and if someone wants to pay the price, then we would probably do it. If they don’t then he’s not going anywhere’.

“That’s it. They have kept him. We have got Declan on the best part of a three-and-a-half year contract. Just like Tottenham have got Kane on a contract. They control what happens.”
