How much is Declan Rice worth?
BREAKING: Manchester City have submitted an official bid for Declan Rice tonight.
Bid is £80m + £10m add-ons.
To me the €80 million a little bit small to sign him
Declan Rice is being overvalued by Westham in my opinion. Yes, he’s a very decent midfielder, Regular in the England national team and has a reputation for being one of the best in his position in the league but the figures quoted by westham which is close to £120M is largely over exaggerated.
He’s worth only £70M to me.
I think his worth will be determined by how desperately Clubs want to have him on board. For Arsenal, they could see him as a player who could take them to the top spot next season. There is news about Erik ten Hag’s Man United and Man City also in the race. City already are a strong team but they would want to have him and further fortify the team rather than have him on the other side.
According to FootballTransfers, his current transfer value is between €46.9M and €78.1M.
Rice could become the third most expensive Premier League transfer in history, behind England teammate Jack Grealish and Chelsea star Enzo Fernandez.
Rice’s England midfield partner Jude Bellingham has already completed a £88.5m/$112m move from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid as the third most expensive central midfield transfer deal in history.
Paul Pogba’s £89.8m/$114m move from Juventus to United in 2016 held the record for seven years before Chelsea set a new bar by paying Benfica £103.5m/$131.8m for Fernandez at the start of 2023.
According to CIES’ latest data, Rice is the joint third most valuable Premier League player in his position, level with Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard.
Fernandez and Manchester City’s Rodri are tied as the top-valued Premier League central midfielders at £85.5m/$109m.
According to CIES Football Observatory, who analyse the football market, Rice is valued at £70m/$87m. Based on Arsenal’s interest, West Ham are confident of edging the price beyond £90m/$105m.
Arsenal fans seeing reports that Manchester City 𝐰𝐨𝐧’𝐭 match their bid for Declan Rice and have pulled out of the race
Arsenal have submitted a third bid of $134M for Declan Rice, per David Ornstein.
It would be the record transfer fee for a British player
Manchester City have pulled OUT of the race for Declan Rice. They will NOT match Arsenal’s bid.
Maybe Eni Aluko was right after all.
