David Moyes has reiterated that it would take “Bank of England money” for Chelsea to pry Declan Rice away from West Ham
Rice, who was a member of clubs academy from 2006-14, made his West Ham debut in 2015 and has gone on to make 131 appearances for the club while scoring three goals, and his performances has led to alot of speculation that frank Lampard wanted to get him signed by the club
Lampard was a massive fan of the midfielder and was keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge, but after spending so much money in the summer transfer window, he was not given funds it would take to get the midfielder all signed up.
And now Moyes, who had previously said that it would require “Bank of England money” for any club to convince West Ham to sell their prized midfielder, says that you can now add Bank of Scotland money on top of that too.
“No matter who was the manager at Chelsea, or whoever came in, it would have been the same answer,” Moyes said on Goal
“I said it right at the start and I’m only repeating myself – Bank of England money would be required, and you might even need to add Bank of Scotland on to that as well because he has been so good.”
Rice is a very special player that is going to become a world class player in the next couple of years, but now that Lampard is not boss of the club, it would be a massive shock to now see him make that move back to the Blues
