West Ham United: Fans scoff at Declan Rice transfer report

West Ham United: Fans scoff at Declan Rice transfer report - West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to a report by 90min, as relayed by the Daily Express and shared on social media, West Ham United and Manchester United have discussed Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones as possible makeweights in any proposed deal for Declan Rice. 

Indeed, the Red Devils are apparently keen on the Irons star as a transfer target for the summer, with this trio of Old Trafford players entering the conversation as this murmur of a potential swap deal emerges.

Can you name all 10 of these former West Ham players? Let's get started! Who is this with Nobes?

Rice, who has been a mainstay under David Moyes this season and arguably West Ham’s best player, is currently out of action due to injury, but that hasn’t stopped transfer news from circulating over the Englishman.

As 90min drop this claim involving Matic, Jones and loan star Lingard, plenty of Irons have been livid over this alleged proposal – with one supporter blasting it as ‘unreal’.

While West Ham are reportedly eager to land Lingard on a permanent deal, the inclusion of Manchester United’s other two players has baffled many supporters – and it’s understandable given that Matic has started just 10 Premier League games while Jones hasn’t featured at all this season (WhoScored).

Here is a flavour of the Twitter reaction from the Irons faithful, with one describing the reports as “unreal”:
