West Ham make big Brazilian decision after stunning £70Million offer made
WEST HAM do not want to sell Lucas Paqueta in this window and have rejected the advances of Man City.
West Ham have been in the headlines a lot this summer window and have already seen the massive departure of Declan Rice happen after he decided to make the move to Arsenal.
The Hammers board are finally making moves in the transfer window as it seems that James Ward-Prowse is arriving from Southampton after a deal was agreed and Harry Maguire is expected to arrive after Man United accepted a £30 million offer
However – some worrying news broke this week after it was claimed on the DAILY TELEGRAPH – that Man City have made an offer to sign Lucas Paqueta for a fee of £70 million.
Paqueta was one of West Ham’s stand-out players last season as they won the Europa Conference League and is a man that David Moyes will not allow to depart the club this summer.
But the Brazilian’s contract does contain an £85million buyout clause for next summer, and he is reportedly up for making a move to the current Premier League and Champions League holders.
However – the reports adds that the current offer is nowhere near their valuation, nor do they wish to lose their playmaker ahead of the new Premier League season.
CAN PAQUETA TURN DOWN A MOVE TO MAN CITY?
Paqueta was a player that WEST HAM fans were very happy with last season – he really impressed in that Hammers shirt and he is a man that David Moyes has big hops for over the next couple of seasons.
This rumour has come out of nowhere and if Man City are seriously interested in a potential move for the Brazilian star – we can see him asking for a transfer as it will be very hard to turn down.
To play for one of the best sides in the game, for one of the best managers and at the very highest level? It is a standard that most players like Paqueta dream about, so it will be interesting to see just how this all plays out.
