James Maddison; Declan Rice TEAMtalk

West Ham are ready to slap a £100m price tag on a major Man Utd target, while Tottenham have lined up Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement – all in Sunday’s papers.



West Ham are set to slap a British record £100million price tag on the head of Declan Rice in a bid to price him out of a move to Manchester United, according to reports.

United have being showing a significant interest in the England international, who still has four years to run on his Hammers contract, but failed to tempt the London club into selling last summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tipped to revive his interest in Rice in the new year, especially with Paul Pogba expected to make another bid to leave Old Trafford – despite talk of the Frenchman penning a new Red Devils deal.

But the Hammers don’t want to sell Rice, who they see as their most prized asset, and are ready to try and price him out of any potential move by placing a £100m price tag on his head, according to a report in the Sunday Express.
