Exclusive: Fry drops big claim on potential Rice exit

Barry Fry insists West Ham United will not let Declan Rice go for any price this summer.

The midfielder is currently away on international duty with England at Euro 2020.

But he has been heavily linked with a potential exit from the club this summer, amid interest from Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City.

Fry believes that Rice would get a significant pay rise if he did decide to leave the London Stadium.

But the Peterborough United Director of Football, who knows the Hammers well, cannot see any scenario in which the Irons allow Rice to leave.

Indeed, he has been an integral member of the club’s squad this season and has repeatedly captained them in the absence of Mark Noble.

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Fry said: “He’d get miles more money at Chelsea, we all know that, or Man United or Man City, whoever went in for him, but I can’t see West Ham letting him go at any money.

“The owners and Moyesie are very ambitious, they want to make West Ham the leading London club. They nearly did this year by the way.

“He’ll want to go one better and the worst thing you can do is get rid of Declan Rice, no matter how much money you get. It won’t appease the West Ham fans.”

Rice made a total of 32 appearances in the Premier League last term and will be a key member of England’s squad at the European Championships this summer.
