West Ham "leaves" Chelsea, renewal and higher salary for Declan Rice

The West Ham club intend to finally resolve the issue of Declan Rice, who has been persistently sought by Chelsea, where the 21-year-old was formed as a footballer before transferring to the "Hammers" in 2014.

The destructive midfielder, who in case of need can also play as a center-back, will be offered a new contract with a significant salary improvement, to remove the interest of the London blues. The player's current contract expires in 2024, but West Ham will extend it for another year, until 2025, with a much higher salary.
