Real Madrid "knocking on" Declan Rice's door
Real Madrid are interested in West Ham's Declan Rice according to former player and they are speaking with the 20-year-old's family.
Real Madrid are interested in signing Declan Rice according to former West Ham defender, Scott Minto. The 20-year-old midfielder signed a new deal at the club recently that would keep him there until 2024 but as his star continues to rise, speculation surrounding his future continues.
Real Madrid speaking to Rice's family
Speaking to Stadium Astro after the Manchester United game on Saturday, Minto said "I’m hearing that even Real Madrid are knocking on the door and speaking to his family and I’m not going to tell you [who], it’s a reliable source."
Minto played with West Ham at the start of the century and turned to broadcasting after hanging up his boots. He used to cover Sky Sports' flaghsip LaLiga programme before they lost the rights to Spanish football.
Rice has been linked with Manchester United and a host of other clubs since emerging as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League. Real Madrid are planning an overhaul this summer and landing Rice would be a coup considering his recent form, age and projected development.
