Batshuayi update

Michy-Batshuayi-612149The Daily Express are reporting that Michy Batshuayi is close to a West Ham deal.

They claim “According to French outlet Buzzsport, the Ligue 1 side want as much as £30.8m for their 17-goal striker and while Spurs are unwilling to go that high, West Ham are said to be on the verge of completing a deal.”

Only problem is the French Buzzport report says the player really wants to play for Spurs but the North London team refuse to meet his €40m valuation.

RR Very Low (1)The story seems to hinge on the fact that West Ham had already bid £31m which was rejected in May and therefore the Hammers are now in pole position to complete the deal by 1st July deadline set by Marseille’s chairman.  The only problem with this speculation is Slaven Bilic himself rubbished the reported £31m West Ham bid for Batshuayi although he admitted he liked the player.

Back May Bilic told the press “Michy Batshuayi, he’s a top striker, playing for Marseille, big club scoring goals there, very young Belgium international, already a few years playing at the top level scoring goals, either for Standard Liège or Marseille now, he’s a very good player yes, that’s all I can say now at this moment but about these offers it is simply not true what is in the papers, as usual”

I am sorry but I am giving the latest Batshuayi rumour the very lowest rating for our rumour rater.

  1. lol Come on Batman, get in your Batmobile and join us in out Bat-Cave… I’m sure that you’ll fit right in.
    The Spuds are the enemy, they are Jokers… lol 😉

  2. We also need to sign someone to replace Payet.He is too inconsistent for Wet Pants liking it would appear *smh*

    • lol Lemon… yeah Dimi, please try harder next time… thanks 😀

      • Lmao,maybe we should accept £5million for him & get him out of the club asap 🙂

        • lol wise consideration Stan… £5 mil. are much better than a kick in the ba//s… lol 😀

          • Or maybe we should give him as a free gift to Hippo lol

          • Tis no surprise they should be moaning about Payet,they moan about everything else.If you suffer from depression that is the last place to go lol

  3. He won’t have a choice Matte unless the tightwad Spuds come in with a real bid or another club,they need the money to keep playing as a club,
    Slav is not going to say to much until the deal is done,
    We need some class in front of goal and he is the right age as well because he will be an investment

    • I totally agree Bubs… enjoy the sun of Valencia mate 😉

      • Matte. ! How did you get on with you’re tickets enquiry ? Any joy .

        • Hi John, I’m seeking the most economic solution… but it’s not easy… this year I spent most of my month’s wages for a week end in London… lol I’m thinking about a bank robbery, this could be the right solution… haha Anyway, thanks for your concerne, I appreciate that mate 😉

  4. At the end of the day he will come or not ! If he does come he would have had to have consented to the move , if he doesn’t consent and does not come its for the best of the club he didn’t ?
    Chill lads , no matter what happens we have a great team , and can only add to it as we progress ! No rash signings please , be positive in the choice which goes both ways ?

  5. I think the whole story is manufactured out of Spurs not bidding any more than £25m. All probably complete garbage. I do like him, even if I am concerned that he is below Benteke in the Belgium team…I’d prefer to see a superb right back than a striker anyway. If Antonio can play his usual game, he’ll bag LOADS. We score plenty goals from mid-field to strikers…so: Do we REALLY need an expensive striker?
    I’d prefer to try and heal the Sakho rift (by paying him a lot more – he’s only on £27.5k; no wonder he might be unhappy), and looking for more bargains, which is how it catapulted us up there in the 1st place!

  6. Dimi requires a comforting word from those that know more in cyber world to help him with his inconsistency. Or a simple recipe from the good book “Mary Berry” will help him settle into British life.

    • I disagree fervently St.G (The Patron Saint Of Pastry).Paul Hollywood is clearly the man for the job.If he cant solve Payets inconsistency problems then who can??

  7. Yes Mr Hollywood possesses a sprinkling of flourier fairy dust but I can’t see a simple loaf helping Dimis inconsistency woes lol

  8. As he is a frenchman I say Let him eat cake 🙂

  9. More like patron saint of bulls#it, with a slice of bitter jealousy drizzling ??
    Poof pastry comes to mind !!!
