West Ham United‘s bid to bolster their defence with Brazilian centre-back Fabricio Bruno is not going anywhere , with personal terms proving to be a stumbling block.

According to ESPN Brazil, the crux of the issue lies in the significant difference in living costs between England and Brazil. While West Ham’s initial proposed salary reportedly came close to Bruno’s current earnings at Flamengo, it wasn’t enough to compensate for the increased expenses he’d face in England.

Despite reaching an agreement with Flamengo for a transfer fee of £12.5 million with add-ons, West Ham’s negotiations with Bruno himself have reached an impasse.

Reports suggest Bruno’s later wage demands of £100,000 per week were quite rightly considered exorbitant by the Hammers. ESPN Brazil further indicates that Bruno’s inclusion in Flamengo’s starting lineup suggests a low possibility of the deal being resurrected.

West Ham must now decide their next move, as he now appears to be off to the land of Petrodollars and we go back to the drawing board.
