David Moyes has time and again made it clear that he does not wish to part ways with Rice this summer and as per The Athletic, the Hammers are quoting £100 million for the defensive midfielder.
Metro cites The Athletic: “West Ham United will be holding out for a monstrous £100m transfer fee from any club looking to buy Declan Rice this summer.
“The Hammers are not going to make an exit easy, though, and with three years still to run on Rice’s contract, they are in a strong position to keep hold of him.
“The Athletic report that West Ham value the holding midfielder at £100m and will expect bids in that region to even consider letting him go.”
Will the suitors drop interest in Declan Rice?
Declan Rice has been on the radar of Chelsea and Manchester United for close to a year and his market value just shot up after his fine performance for England in the European Championship.
Chelsea are said to be the frontrunners in this deal but with Pogba’s future in doubt, Man United are also not ready to back away.

According to TransferMarkt, Declan Rice is valued at £63 million but since he has three more years left on his current deal, West Ham United can afford to quote all sorts of crazy numbers.
The Hammers are in no hurry to part ways with the 22-year-old(especially since they will be playing in Europe next season) but they also realize that both Manchester United and Chelsea can afford to pay £100 million.
The two Champions League sides have to make a few other big-money signings this summer so we are not sure if either one of them will be ready to meet West Ham’s demands.
