West Ham United wants a fee of more than £ 100 million for English midfielder Declan Rice.
According to talkSPORT host Jim White, the Hammers will not consider any offer less than that figure.
“David Sullivan has already told me that he has to exceed £ 100 million or he will not be entertained,” White said. “We’ll wait and see what happens with that.”
Rice has played an integral role for West Ham this season, helping the club mount an unlikely bet on qualifying for the Champions League.
Chelsea have been strongly linked to the midfielder, while Manchester United has also been credited with an interest.
However, a sale price of more than £ 100 million would probably be enough to force both clubs to look elsewhere.
Rice has certainly been a solid performer for West Ham this season, but Chelsea and United are unlikely to break the bank to try to sign him.
Given that the Hammers are doing well in the Premier League, it would also be a surprise if Rice decided that their future lies elsewhere.
That could change if West Ham loses qualification for Europe or if the club fails to strengthen its squad this summer.
In other news, this West Ham striker is confident the club will qualify for Europe.
