Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla has reported that Brazilian free agent Bernard has chosen to reject West Ham’s offer & will instead listen to mega money offers from China.
However, other reports suggest negotiations are still ongoing with an offer of a four year contract at £110,000 per week on the table.
On Friday club insiders told C&H that the manager was ‘thinking about it’ and deciding whether he could also fulfil the role of backup striker as well as a Lanzini type role.
There was real interest in Bernard back in June when West Ham were quoted £200,000 per week wages and a £15m combined signing on and agent fee.
It remains to be seen how serious the Hammers really are on this signing but if they sign Lucas Perez as rumoured surely the Bernard deal will be dead and buried once more.
