Bilic kills off superstar signing speculation


11Ibrahimovic1602Slaven Bilic has finally killed off suggestions that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be joining the Irons this summer declaring: “He is out of our league”.

It  is now well known, the 34 year old is out of contract at Paris St Germain in June and has dropped some pretty heavy hints that he may like to make a move to the Premier League.

And it had been widely reported that the Irons had discussed the player as they do many others. Indeed it would have been a surprise if they hadn’t.

But the Irons boss has made it clear the striker will not be joining the club saying: “We are moving to a new stadium. We are doing well but Ibra is out of our league, ­unfortunately.

“If he leaves Paris, I don’t know where he is going to go, but I can’t see him coming to West Ham.”

    Not out of our league to old,we need a player who can become part of our new look team for at least 5 years,
    Then we can bring our kids through each year rebuild the academy not waste money maybe one or two key signings,
    He was and still is a great player but we need the next generation great player oldest age 23-24 then if he moves on we make big money for a change,
    Not Rio to Leeds 2 years later they double there money or Carrick to Spuds 1 year on more then double there money,
    The 2 Daves are no mugs they will sort it out
