The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.

@mbaalt8: “What did we expect? Make a serious offer or move on. Stop wasting time”

@CharekaNigel: “Good! Hope they keep rejecting. £100m for a DM when we have the best DM in the world is insane”

@Delademmmm: “Not even worth this saga.”

@sanesou: “Are they joking? Rice is a free agent in 12 months..”

@NjotuPower: “We should walk away.”

@Alvarez_mygoat: “We’re overpaying at most we should be paying 60m”

@uncl3_stan: “We should bid for Kimmich or Barella instead.. Even FDJ”

@LazioAmir: “City and Arsenal would be foolish to meet West Ham`s asking price for Rice. Even the current bids are way too much. Rice may be a good player, but not to commend such a price.”

@KovacicTheGoat: “We shouldn’t go any higher honestly”

@ciara__ella: “If pep really wants him then we’ll bid again if not we’ll leave it but at the end of the day it’s not who the fans want to come into the club but who pep and the board want”

@thecityzensfc: “Harsh as it seems but l feel we might need to add Phillips to this deal,not sure he will have much playing time with Rice Kova and Rodri all in the squad”
