Pellegrini does not object to selling to Declan Rice; the Madrid, attentive

The middle center of West Ham is one of the revelations of the Premier and can be a direct or collateral protagonist of the white market.

The summer will be full of important names for Real Madrid, both in what may directly or collaterally affect the white transfer market. And some pieces on the board will be able to play a double role. That is the case of Declan Rice (20 years old) . The West Ham midfielder is one of the revelations of the season in England and begins to sound for the greats of the Premier and the rest of Europe. In recent days, his name has been linked to Madrid twice: as a possible reinforcement and as a 'necessary collaborator' in the Pogba operation. The Sun has even placed him in an eleven-type of Real Madrid for the next season.

Saturday was Scott Minto, former hammer with an extensive career in the media after his retirement, who claimed on television that Madrid had had contacts with the family. The other twist that can hold a key role is the interest of Manchester United in his signing. Rice could stop at Old Trafford as a possible replacement for Pogba and pave the way from French to Real Madrid.

As a decade after his stormy year at Madrid in the season (2009-2010) of Florentino Pérez's return to the presidency, Manuel Pellegrini's will may be key to white interests. The Chilean coach of West Ham has insisted that Rice "has a price", but without closing the door to its sale: "If it's good business for the club and the player improves his career, it can be done," he said. in recent weeks The Engineer.

Pellegrini has not stopped praising the qualities of his pupil. "It's the best medium center of contention in English," said the Chilean before Rice received Southgate's call for the England team. It was a call with history. Although born in London - before West Ham, until he was 14 years old he was trained in the quarry of Chelsea - Rice had been international in lower categories with the Republic of Ireland, where his grandparents were from. He had even debuted with the absolute and played three friendlies in 2018, against Turkey, France and the United States. But the unofficial character of these parties allowed him last February to claim his status as eligible for England while waiting for the flame of Southgate, which in March ranked him in the matches against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, qualifiers for the European Championship.

A Rice struggled to make a dent in the eleven last season, but this season has become indisputable for Pellegrini. He has played the last 30 matches of the Premier League. Pellegrini has only given him respite in the cups. He was substitute in the round of the fourth round of the FA Cup in which West Ham fell 4-2 to Wimbledon of League One (third category of English football) and rested the last ten minutes in the win (8- 0) against Macclesfield (of League Two) in the third round of the League Cup. It is the seventh maximum recovery of the Premier (269, the ranking is led by his teammate Lukasz Fabianski with 327) and has scored two goals: Arsenal and Newcastle United.
