Manchester City: Matt Law drops Declan Rice transfer claim

Manchester City: Matt Law drops Declan Rice transfer claim -Manchester City News

Manchester City are weighing up a move for West Ham star Declan Rice, though the club are wary of another Harry Kane-style saga, claims the Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law.

The Lowdown: Rice’s situation

According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 23-year-old has rejected the Irons’ third contract offer and is instead open to a move away from east London at the end of the season.

Despite this, David Moyes has made it clear that the midfielder is “untouchable” in the summer.

This has been supported by a report recently issued by The Athletic, who claim that that Hammers are determined to keep hold of Rice this summer. However, it is also reported that West Ham have now conceded to the fact that they will have to sell him in 12 months time.

The Latest: Law’s news…

Taking to Twitter, Matt Law shared the news linking Man City with a move for the England international. He claimed: “Manchester City weigh up Rice move but are wary of Kane-style saga.”

In the adjacent article, Law revealed that West Ham’s minimum £150m price tag could put a number of the midfielder’s potential suitors off, including Pep Guardiola’s side.

However, it is reported that Rice remains high on City’s radar.

The Verdict: Great addition

The Citizens boss is certainly a big fan of the 23-year-old, having previously labelled him an “exceptional player”.

With a reported weekly salary of just £62,000, Rice would not break the current wage structure imposed at City, even if that number were increased two-fold. However, the staggering transfer fee would offset this, blasting the club’s £100m record signing of Jack Grealish out of the water.

Furthermore, with Rodri being rated as City’s fifth best player this season with an impressive 7.31 SofaScore rating, the addition of Rice could prove to be overkill in that position.

Therefore, however great this signing would be for Guardiola, it may not be entirely feasible.
