Moyes says Chelsea will need ‘the Bank of England’ to sign Rice
Chelsea have been warned by West Ham United manager David Moyes they will need the Bank of England behind them if they are to sign Declan Rice.
The Blues have been regularly linked with the 21-year-old, who began his career at Stamford Bridge but was released from the club’s academy in 2013.
Rice has enjoyed an impressive rise at West Ham, forcing his way into the England team and establishing himself as one of the country’s most in-demand young players.
But Moyes has made it clear the Hammers have no intention to sell their star man.
“We have still got a long way to go in the window, maybe somebody has the Bank of England but nobody has shown that,” he said, quoted by the Daily Express.
“It was always the plan, there was no intention to lose Declan Rice.
“We have had no bids and no enquiries. There is a lot of speculation but I can only tell you what I know.”
