West Ham midfielder Declan Rice is reportedly unhappy that the London club has priced him out of a move to Manchester United this summer.
West Ham value the England international at £100million and that has stopped the Blues from submitting a bid for Rice.
According to the Telegraph, Rice is frustrated and will therefore shun a higher wage and contract extension in an attempt to force his way out of West Ham.
Rice’s contract with West Ham runs until 2024 with the London club retaining the option to extend it until 2025.
Rice has ambitions to aim for trophies and regularly play Champions League football and he believes he can’t achieve that while playing for West Ham.
West Ham boss David Moyes insisted last week the east London club will not sell Rice unless they receive a bid of more than £100million.
