Oh no Antonio!

michail-antonio-west-ham-stoke_3387473Speculation that Chelsea are set to launch a raid on Michail Antonio are not new and were they to it will not happen anyway!

David Sullivan has already made it clear that a new contract is on the way at the end of the season after the player signed a new deal last July.

There is simply no chance of such a move taking place with the player – and likely Hammer of this Year – locked into a contract which will keep him at the club until 2020.

Chelsea are yet to follow up their interest with a concrete offer, with the Hammers determined to keep hold of the right-sided star who has played more than 50 times for the club.

Michail has proved an amazing buy at £7 million having becoming the leading scorer this season and over his time with the club filling right wing, right back and central striker roles.

It’s an unthinkable proposition and a recycled story which the club has no intention of allowing to happen.

  1. Least they’ve got the head screwed on with this I didn’t doubt we would keep hold of him but being hammer there’s always a tiny cause for concern as for transfers still no one signed yet again will no doubt be last minute where well sign some one like long and Snodgrass both good players don’t get me wrong but think we should lookin at better obviously easier said then done in January but thought the board would of planned ahead like they did with nordviet etc shame we could get a new player in in time for palace as we know it will be Carroll upfront and allerdayce will plan accordingly

    I have read that 10 times and it still makes no sense !!!

  3. At this time with Feghouli almost gone and Payet looking rather doubtfull, I don’t think we would be so stupid as to sell our best winger/striker/RB/RWB………….
    Snodgrass though would give us strength inthat department that we need to stay out of trouble.
    This season is obviously a write-off, so when we have a few more points we need to try some academy players ( or at least the ones not loaned out ).

  4. It’ll certainly be a test of whether with the two Dave’s genuinely do believe we are no longer a “selling club”. Of course, as with Payet, much will come down to the attitude of the player and how much they want to stay.

    But to be honest, I believe little that comes out of Sullivan’s mouth when it comes to transfers, either in or out.

    • The problem wth him is he probably believes what he says, but his wishes rarely come true, which is the same for any club looking to buy. All clubs work through their list of prospective signings until they get one of them.
      The difference is that he says it all before hand. He should just shut up, give no clues to his intentions, and let us only know who he actually signs.

      • Spot on. You don’t see the owners of other clubs talking about targets the ways ours do. I have a mate who is Birmingham City fan, and says it was always the same with them. Lots of claims about who and what they would be signing…only for last minute panics to bring in loan players no one had ever heard of.

  5. Antman aint going nowhere this window.Im more concerned about the James Collins to Real Madrid rumours 😂

  6. plays with one hand in his pocket. casual.
