I've seen that Real Madrid are talking to Rice and his family over a move to Spain, all I can say is because of his young age and length of contract he's only going to get better and better so IF he goes anywhere then the price should be in the 100s of millions?

Anything is possible Stevie, but I'm not sure the source is credible, one for the Ed's opinion I'd say.

{Ed002's Note - He is represented by his family and I don't know if they have approached them or not. They cannot speak directly to the player and if they have West Ham can make a formal complaint to UEFA. Sides have taken a look as he is having a very good season. The sides include Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Spurs - and Real Madrid were present at the Chelsea game, and they may well be looking to an offer, certainly if Casemiro were to leave.}

How could he refuse if the offer is credible? Good luck to him, Madrid seems rather more attractive than Stratford😂🤣 he maybe able to ask for family arrangements etc as he seems a very family orientated man and May insist on that if they want him enough they will accommodate his wishes, we just need to make sure we capitalise on the fee obviously!

{Ed002's Note - I think West Ham should do what they can to hold on to him longer - perhaps explaining that he would likely not be a starter at RM or MU.}

Ed002, At that age in in a different climate with life seeming like one long holiday, earning a fortune, phew that might hard to refuse depending on your personality and dedication!

{Ed002's Note - If he is bright enough he will understand (at least I hope he would).}

Agree ed, at any huge team he could be a project and not an automatic pick, if he wants first team football then I hope he stays put.

{Ed002's Note - I hope so to. It will be good for both the club and the player.}

Another season or 2 with us would probably be best, if he continues at this rate man u and real are the only 2 teams that could afford him out of the ones you mentioned. He was superb yesterday, countless brilliant tackles always intelligent in his play, he keeps getting better in a attacking sense too. Would love him to do a Billy Bonds but the lure of competing for the champions league with real is more than understandable.

Too many next big things have gone to Real Madrid and ended up never playing. If he is good enough he will get offers later, right now he needs to be playing and only likely place that will happen every week next season is West Ham. After that unless we push top 6 I fear he will be off.

Iron. Al - don't forget we bought Billy Bonds from Charlton (he played 95 times for them) - he didn't come through our youth system.

All footballers think they will be or should be starters. You don't get to where Rice is now without tremendous self-belief and he will believe he will get game time at a big club of they pay a fortune for him.

Yes Bonds only got the captains armband because Lampard was looking for a transfer.
