Real Madrid ‘make contact’ with Declan Rice’s family as they look to beat Manchester United to West Ham starlet
Declan Rice could be the next Brit to try his hand abroad after Real Madrid were linked with the midfielder.
Seven months after considering getting a loan move from West Ham United, Rice is now a fully fledged England international and in contention for the PFA Young Player of the Year Award.
But, some of the biggest clubs in the world are now in the hunt for his signature, including Los Blancos.
According to former Chelsea and West Ham defender Scott Minto, the Spanish side have even contacted Rice’s family as they look to push through a deal.
“I’m hearing that even Real Madrid are knocking on the door and speaking to his family,” he said. “I’m not going to tell you who, but it’s a reliable source.”
The revelation will potentially be of some concern to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer as the Red Devils have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Despite speculation about his future, Rice admitted he was flattered with the interest but the Hammers were his sole concern
“Growing up as a kid, when you become a professional footballer, you want to play at the highest level,” Rice said last month.
“It’s normal to like people saying nice things about you but I’m really happy playing at West Ham under the manager. I’ve got a special connection with the fans as well. I’m loving every minute of it.”
