Why Chelsea Owners Might Have Ruined The Market For The Transfer Of Central Midfielders

On Tuesday morning, Sky Sports Football reported that West Ham United has set a price tag on their 24-year-old Midfielder Declan Rice. Declan Rice has been linked with several top Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool in the last few seasons.

The 24-year-old has spent the last 6 seasons at the London Stadium with West Ham United, becoming one of the best Defensive Midfielders in the Premier league and the Captain of the Hammers.

In the latest report about Declan Rice from Sky Sports Football, West Ham United are ready to sell Declan Rice for £120million next summer if they receive an approach from a Champions League club. The Hammers added that they don't want to hinder Declan Rice's dream to play in the UEFA Champions League.

Declan Rice will have just a year on his contract with West Ham United at the end of this season but, West Ham United thinks he's worth paying £200million for when he would literally be available as a free agent at the end of next season.

It's not just Declan Rice that has been valued at over £100million this season as Borussia Dortmund are also asking for a similar figure for Jude Bellingham, It also almost close to what Brighton and Hove Albion are asking for on Moises Caicedo.

In my opinion, I think the reason why the market for Central Midfielders might be inflated right now is because of what Todd Boehly did with Enzo Fernandez in January.

Enzo Fernandez was just a fresh guy in Europe but, Chelsea Owner Todd Boehly paid £106million to get him in January from Benfica.

This is enough to push other clubs to slam ridiculous price on their Players too. In case of Declan Rice, he's young, experienced, has a great injury record, he's a starter for England and he's premier league proven.
