ARSENAL midfielder Declan Rice gave the perfect response to a comment about Moises Caicedo’s transfer fee during a post-match interview with Sky Sports.


The Gunners clinched a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Monday thanks to a perfectly-executed penalty from Martin Odegaard.

Rice – who was named Player of the Match – spoke to Sky Sports at full-time, but he was quickly hit with a small jibe about his transfer fee.

The midfielder signed for Arsenal in a £105million transfer from West Ham last month, making him the most expensive player in Premier League history.

However, that record was broken last week when Caicedo completed a huge £115m move from Brighton to Chelsea.

Monday Night Football presenter David Jones was eager to bring the record up in the post-match interview with Rice.

He said: “Can’t believe Caicedo has already broken your record though, Declan!

“You can’t be happy with that!”


To which the midfielder responded: “I had it up on the wall for two weeks, it’s come down already!”

Fans praised Rice for his “perfect response” to the comment, with one person tweeting: “He’s even entertaining off the pitch! Worth every penny that £105m.”


Another added: “Finally some good banter.”

A third wrote: “Probably the best £105m spent this window from any club.”

While a fourth commented: “Perfect response.”

Rice became one of four new additions to the Arsenal squad this summer.

Kai Havertz joined the club in a £65m transfer from Chelsea before Jurrien Timber followed in a £40m move from Ajax.

David Raya became Mikel Arteta’s latest signing last week when he joined Arsenal on a season-long loan.

The Gunners have the option to buy the goalkeeper from Brentford for £27m next summer.
