The Telegraph media personnel spoke to the Here We Go podcast hosted by fellow journalist Fabrizio Romano about Cesc Fabregas and Declan Rice. According to him, Rice is a fantastic player and that the West Ham star is similar to Cesc Fabregas.
West Ham United player Rice has been the subject of interest from the biggest clubs on the Premier League scene. The England international was a teenager when he was released by Chelsea. The Premier League heavyweights released himat the age of 15 and are one of the teams interested in him. Apart from Chelsea, big English clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City have been linked with the English player.
Rice was a major player for the Three Lions of England at the Euro 2020 tournament. The West Ham United star was a regular in the England midfield alongside Leeds United star Kalvin Philips. The two players were crucial to the England team that went all the way to the final at Euro 2020 before they lost the title to Italy via penalties.
Mike McGrath writes for The Telegraph and it was the publication that revealed the news of the contract turned down by Rice. The England international has rejected two contract offers. McGrath is sure that Declan Rice and Cesc Fabregas have a lot of things in common.
