Crazybola.com – Declan Rice is focused on this season with West Ham United, but he is also preparing for a future transfer move and joining one of the Premier League’s elite teams.
West Ham are currently considering offering Declan Rice a new contract, although his current contract runs until 2024, as his wages do not represent his position and status within the club.
According to reports, the England international midfielder’s salary at the London Stadium is only IDR 559 million per week, or IDR 29 billion per year. Even though he is the main player at the club, his salary is far from the highest-paid fringe player at the club, namely Andriy Yarmolenko who reaches Rp. 111 billion per year.
West Ham United are aware that the salary that Declan Rice is currently earning is far from adequate given his role and status at the club when he also now plays the role of team captain as Mark Noble has been sidelined on the bench.
The England international midfielder is rumored to be open to signing a new contract at the London Stadium but on one condition, there must be a release clause in his new contract which will allow him to leave the club if his price tag is met.
However reports 90min mentioned that West Ham United have a policy of not including release clauses in their player contracts, so talks on a new contract have stalled and it looks difficult to continue.
Declan Rice is considered one of the best young defensive midfielders in world football, and that has even earned him interest from various top Premier League clubs. Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in his services.
The 22-year-old of course wants to be able to secure a move to a big English club in the future and he doesn’t want that his future transfer moves will be hindered by his new contract at West Ham.
