David Sullivan has admitted the Hammers could spend up to £30 million on a major player this summer but that it’s unlikely!
He wants to strengthen across the board but in exclusive comments to ClaretandHugh has made it clear “anything is possible” were certain situations to arise.
The issue was raised in a lengthy Telegraph article this morning by reporter Jason Burt who wrote: “The club could feasibly bid £30 million for a player this summer as a statement of intent. It has been discussed.
They are determined to make a concerted effort to break into the top six and, who knows, maybe even challenge for one of those Champions League places. Although the general public may be unaware of what might be happening, other clubs are not.”
Now -speaking to us earlier this morning – the co chairman and chief shareholder has made it clear that, unlikely though it might be, it could happen!
He said: “We could spend that amount (£30 million) this Summer but very unlikely on one player as we need five or six MINIMUM.”
However, he added: “Were the club to move on a few “lesser” squad players ANYTHING is possible.”
