Chelsea hasn’t given up on his plan to hunt Rice

Reporter Dean Jones has revealed that Chelsea are yet to drop plans to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, although Thomas Tuchel is no longer in position.

         “Sing the Blues” continued to flirt with the England midfielder continuously for the past 1-2 years, which the German boss hopes to replace N’Golo Kante, who is over the age of 3. Gone

         And although Tuchel’s latest has been sack, Jones insists Chelsea are not planning on bringing Rice to join the ufabet team.

         “Thomas Tuchel’s departure does not affect Chelsea’s vision of signing Declan Rice, there are still people at the club ready to approach Declan Rice when the time comes.” Jones told GIVEMESPORT.

         Rice made a great comeback last season, playing 48 games in all competitions, scoring four goals and providing four assists, and this year he has played eight games, scoring one assist.

On Thursday, Conor Gallagher was omitted from England’s 28-man squad as Gareth Southgate prepares for the latest instalment of Nations League matches. With the midfielder dropped, it casts doubt over his future at Chelsea – though there’s not much he can do but knuckle down with the Qatar World Cup commencing in November.

On Friday, Luis Campos ruled himself out of the running for sporting director in west London. The Portuguese transfer guru committed his future to Paris Saint-Germain, with RB Salzburg chief Christoph Freund and former Liverpool director Michael Edwards both still heavily linked.
