Chelsea target Declan Rice has been told he needs to “sort his life out” when it comes to an important decision on his future, by West Ham legend Frank McAvennie
Rice has been one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League this season and his performances has led to all sorts of rumours that he will make the step up in the summer to a bigger club.
McAvennie expects interest to be shown when the market re-opens, with Rice’s potential for further development clear for all to see, but the Hammers hero is eager to see a definitive call made as quickly as possible, so that everyone knows where they stand, with player and club having previous when it comes to causing confusion.
McAvennie told Football Insider: “I hope Declan Rice sorts his life out. There are a lot of rumours about him going and I am not sure if he will stay this summer.
“Look what he did to Ireland. He could not make up his mind.
“I do not think he will be a stalwart for England over the next few years because they have got a lot of players coming through.
“Yes, Declan is playing every week but he might think that he has to go to a big club and shine to cement his place in the England side, but if he goes they will be getting big money for him.”
The man is very good and would be very welcome at the club, that is for sure.
