Emery lands in Seville

landerWest Ham managerial target Unai Emery was filmed returning to Seville on Thursday night. Spanish media claim he will meet with officials of Sevilla today to agree a new contract. The Spanish paper claims he landed in San Pablo airport at 10.30pm local time last night after returning from Valencia, where he spent a few days with his son Lander.

His 12 year old son is a goal keeper for the Valencia youth academy and earlier this week he posted a photo of himself watching his son Lander play football.

According to one report in Spanish media, Sevilla have offered the in the demand coach £1.7m per year to remain with them with Napoli offering him an improved £2.5m per year while West Ham are rumoured to have offered him a huge package worth up to £4.3m per year with bonuses to tempt him to the Premier League. If true it appears that money doesn’t always do the talking.

  1. Just because he is in Seville doesn’t mean he hasn’t agreed anything with West Ham, maybe he is there to tell them he is leaving, and anyway he does live there so he has probably taken his son home.

    We must wait and see what transpires in the next few days, sick of all this speculation, the two Davids know what they are doing, lets just wait and see.


  2. He travelled alone as can be seen on the video

  3. Ill be disappointed if we miss out on him.

    It looks like the Davids are not great at negotiations or maybe the pathetic transfer budget is making us look like a joke to these top draw managers.

  4. if the figures being touted prove to be correct, ill have nothing but respect for Emery, as he is clearly a man of integrity. the fact that he would remain at Sevilla with double plus deals on the table would be almost unheard of today.
    these reports seem to conflict to that point that i think call can be disregarded, ranging from;
    he flew to Naples/the president of Napoli flew to Sevilla,
    he has been to London for talks on Tuesday/Wednesday/Today/Tomorrow – when in fact he has not been to England at all yet.
    it appears that he will hear us out, and that he is giving the incumbent the respect of speaking with them first.
    Sevillas loss would certainly be our gain. fingers crossed now. COYI

  5. Emery is already being reported as rejecting West Ham.Gary Monk is now in the frame.Good grief!

  6. Should be easy to check flights to see where he has been,
    Money is important but so is life style,cost you a lot more money to live in London,
    The weather here laid back attitude to players and managers,he is on home soil with his family around him,he probably has €10 million in the bank will never be out of work could get the Barc or Real job in future,
    Sorry we would have to sell our club hard to move him,
    Improve the transfer budget and get Biesla he will bring a centre forward for free with him,

  7. youre right Bubs. thats why this process is so drawn out. do i want to manage in La Liga or have a crack at the Prem? Europa League or Champions league?. My son plays for Valencia? id have to relocate my family, move house, change schools, learn a new language…. rainy London or sunny Seville? Paella or Pie & mash?
    the hard sell comes with the additional wages, the move to the O.S and the vision of our owners. we have the possibility of a similar circumstance to Man City happening for us also, West Ham London at Stratford Internationl Station – we could be huge.
    Supposedly his agents made the first contact with us, so there must be “some” interest.

    it aint over til the chairmans son tweets, lol

    • Could be huge IG, we are huge!
      No other PL team east of Stratford all the way to the Essex / Kent Coast.
      To the N / E of the ground nothing in our way until you hit Suffolk.
      Averaged 30k + even when we’ve been toilet! which feels like forever LOL!

      Make no mistake, we will go to the OS on mass, as Kevin ‘ the Hammer’ Mitchell said,
      “We’ll rock that gaff, just wait and see”.

  8. I don’t know how they did not wet their selves BFS lovers defending for 40 minuets to get a point,and now they can’t give the board a few days to get this right,
    What will be will be,
    Whoever takes over will in have the start of a good squad,European Football,the new stadium to look forward to,the backing of the fans,
    What not to like,
    Let’s be happy

  9. I like you Bubs, youre alright mate.
