West Ham are said to have offered a massive eight-year deal to convince Declan Rice to remain at the London Stadium.
Rice, 23, had another impressive season at West Ham and captained the team throughout the campaign with Mark Noble no longer a regular in the first team.
Rice has turned down a series of contract offers from West Ham and is said to have yet to make a decision about his long-term future.
According to talk sportsWest Ham are now back on the negotiating table on a huge eight-year deal worth £200,000 per share.
TalkSPORT host Jim White said, “I know with 99% certainty that West Ham won’t be selling Declan Rice this summer.
“Declan Rice has been offered an eight-year contract with West Ham United for a £200,000-a-week contract with an inflation-adjusted scale.
“It’s an eight-year contract worth £200,000 a week. At this stage he has absolutely no intention of signing it. If Declan and his people wanted a deal worth £200, this eight-year contract could be a ten-year contract. 200,000.
“So will they sell? At Declan Rice’s camp there is a belief that he could earn anywhere between £300,000 and £400,000 a week. Whether that is true or not remains to be seen.
“The magic number may be £150 million, but West Ham United have a feeling that there is little chance that that number will be available to Declan Rice this summer.
🔥 “You are such garbage!”
📝 “Who signed an 8-year contract? #WHUFC? Why would you do that?!”
❌ “He won’t get £150m for him! I wonder who Rice’s suitors are.”

“So that’s why I feel 99% sure they’re going to keep him this summer.”
West Ham’s chances of keeping Rice appear to have taken a hit as their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season have been shattered after losing to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-final last week.
But speaking after the defeat, Rice suggested he was planning another season at the London Stadium.
“We have proven that we can play in big games in Europe and our fans and stadiums have shown that we can afford big games in Europe,” Rice said.
“I’m proud of these guys because we’re not the biggest squad, but in the end we had a great year and we’re ready to go again.”
