West Ham captain Declan Rice’s future has been one of speculation again with reports of a move to Bayern Munich close, as ExWHUEmployee provides an update.
The Hammers midfielder has much interest from big clubs with Arsenal and the Bayern Munich reported to be reading bids, although reports in the media have suggested a move is close to being agreed with the German side.
Ex has reported on The West Ham Way Patreon however that the reports in the media do not reflect the current situation.
“Reports stated that Declan Rice has accepted a move to Bayern Munich and that is a done deal for him to join the German side. These reports are very wide of the mark and not true.
“Whilst both Arsenal and Munich are said to lead the way with progress in the deal neither have had a bid accepted yet and both Manchester clubs are poised to make a move.
“Manchester United wanted to get their cup final against City out the way first and Manchester City still have the “small matter” of a Champions League Final to contend with next Saturday. Once the game against Inter Milan has been concluded then they may well make their move too. It is also thought that Rice prefers to remain in England rather than play his trade abroad.”
Rice is expected to lead our Hammers into the final of the Europa Conference League against Fiorentina on Wednesday night, with Ex adding that our captain is fully focused on delivering our first trophy in 43 years.
