Chelsea are prepared to make a £70m move for West Ham’s Declan Rice, while Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy close to Stamford Bridge move
ABRAMOVICH SANCTIONS CHELSEA, RICE SWOOP
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has authorized a move worth £70m for Declan Rice including midfielder Ross Barkley, as indicated by a report.
Chelsea have just spent over £200m this summer transfer window on six significant signings. Kai Havertz, who cost an underlying £72m, was the most costly of the pack.
In fact, it will be seven amazing players through the door when Chelsea affirm a deal for Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
In any case, as indicated by Ivisionsport, Frank Lampard has not completed there. West Ham defender Declan Rice is another firm target and Frank Lampard has now earned endorsement from Abramovich to make a move for the England defender.
The source guarantees the “huge” offer will see Chelsea offer Barkley to West Ham. Chelsea supposedly value the 26-year-old at £30m and are happy to see him leave.
Likewise, the Blues will also offer a £40m cash sum, taking the absolute fee of the deal to £70m.
The Hammers boss David Moyes repeated on Friday that he trusted it would take the ‘Bank of England’ to lose Declan Rice.
David Moyes has recently conceded that the 21-year-old is likely the best defender he has, just as midfield.
