Callieri – the finances!


Calieri1Jonathn Callieri has agreed personal terms at around £40k a week with the Irons.

The Argentine – who was hunted by Chelsea last season – has agreed to join the Irons after reported interest from Barcelona and Spurs.

The talented 22 year old will need a work permit but that process cannot be completed until Agentine are out of the Rio Olympics.

Callieri is regarded as one of the brightest talents in the South American game where he played most of last seson for Sao Paulo on loan from his club Deportivo Maldonado and was handed a deal recognising that.

We were told by a source: “H is a very good player indeed and the deal is close to £40k a week as far as peronal terms are concerned.”

    No passport then ?
    He does not fit the permit criteria in games played for his country or does the Olympics count ?

  • johnboy says:

    Its just the beurocracy bubs . He can’t leave till after the Olympics I’m guessing ?
    The club and the player don’t seem to concerned .

  • mooro66uk says:

    Just curious but wasn’t he granted an Italian passport last week. And if so does he still need a work permit?

    • Tone says:

      Well I believed he had gone to Italy in Nov 2015 & got an Italian passport.Who knows the truth.So many different rumours flying around.

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    I read in the Argentinian press that he has signed a 1 year contract with no deal to buy price at the end of it, so it is likely he is looking to give his best for 1 year and use as a stepping stone to a bigger club, although I would rather we had a deal to buy him outright I am more confident that he is going to give it his best for the whole year because he has to in order to attract a new club.

    • johnboy says:

      I thought we had an option to buy 32 ? Surely it was discussed !
      One for Hugh to find out !
