'It's all talk' - Rice brushes off speculation over €80m move to Manchester United

The Old Trafford outfit are reportedly keen to bring in the 20-year-old England international midfielder.

DECLAN RICE HAS dismissed speculation he could leave West Ham United for Manchester United.

Rice has broken into the England team on the back of his mature Premier League performances at London Stadium.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini said in March that the club could be forced to cash in on the 20-year-old if the price was right.

Manchester United, struggling in the league’s bottom half, are reportedly ready to make a £70million (€80m) offer for Rice when the January transfer window opens.

But the midfielder is unconcerned about rumours over his future, having committed to the Hammers by agreeing a long-term deal.

“I signed a five-year contract with West Ham last year, which will keep me at the club until I’m 24,” he told the Daily Mail.

“And for me this is the best place to be right now. I am playing for a manager who has given me my chance and played me week in, week out.

“It’s all talk until something happens – and nothing has – so I’m just focused on West Ham, doing my best and making the fans happy.”
