Anderson/Real Madrid update

Real Madrid have made no contact with West Ham over the suggested possibility that they could move for Felipe Anderson.

Sky Sports News ran a story this morning suggesting the Spanish giants would make a move for the Hammers Brazilian star should they fail to sign Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

The media outlet reported that a £60 million bid had been rejected by Chelsea and whilst the figure seems very low the Belgian midfielder is out of contract next July.

SSN followed up by saying that if they fail to get the Chelsea star then Anderson would be their target although there were no quotes from any sources to back up the claim.

ClaretandHugh contacted a senior London Stadium source and was assured that at this stage there was nothing in the story as far as they were concerned.

We were told: “We’ve had no approach for any player from any club.”

  1. Wouldn’t want to sell him to be honest he’s brilliant on his day . A bit more consistency & we have a special player . He’s already one of my favourites we need to keep our best players and build a team capable of consistency and pushing up the league .COYI ⚒

  2. Sky like the media paper talk only guessing and like hammers in the blood says we need to keep him and build a top side with pelle so only if Anderson fancy real or Barca in sunny Spain will that ever happen as manure scouse and spuds wont wash moving only city with pep in UK would he be better off imo

  3. I do like him, but personally think he is too inconsistent for a £40m player. If a bid around the initial Hazard scale came in, I wouldn’t be too disappointed if we bought 2 at £30m

  4. This is less about Anderson specifically, and more about the fact that if we consistently sell our best players we will consistently be treading water (which maybe is what the Porno Bros’ want). Pellegrini’s constant references to having a ‘big team mentality’ starts with transfer policy. Clearly when Real / Barca / Juve come calling any other team would struggle, but we have to keep our best players – especially one who wants to be here.
    Talking about player valuations is somewhat meaningless as there’s a ceiling to what we could spend on a player given that certain players who want only CL football would never come to us, so you’re looking at signing 2 / 3 players who are worse than the player you are selling, and at best 2, but more likely 1 will settle and have the desired impact. So it’s pretty much guaranteed that any deal will be bad for us in footballing terms, which is all I care about.

  5. Anderson is going nowhere , he’s too important to Pelligrini’s plans . It’s not a question of Anderson’s slight inconsistency , it’s more a question of team / squad inconsistent outings .
