Felipe Anderson – The Finances

West Ham will invest up to £75m in their club record signing Felipe Anderson over the next four years.

The Hammers smashed the club record by paying €41m (£36.2m) to Lazio for the attacking midfielder with a further €6m (£5.3m) in potential add-ons. Another €5m (£4.5m) was spent on agents fees bringing the total to £46m!

The Brazilian wages are massive too as he negotiated the same terms as West Ham two top earners in Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnaunotic.

He will earn over £100,000 per week as his basic wage plus appearance money and bonuses on top which could, in theory, take him to £140,000 per week to enjoy parity with Chicharito.  Should he earn the maximum that would cost West Han another £28.8m in wages over the life of his four-year contract.

This is a whole new level for West Ham in terms of investment and spend for one player. Let’s hope he returns the faith Manuel Pellegrini has put into him.

  1. I think the wages are fair enough, if you become the most expensive player ever at the club as a player you would expect to be on par with the highest earners, if the rumours are true about Bernard and his agent has allegedly sent a picture from inside the LS then he will be on even bigger money, it is an unprecedented time at the club, I think we probably will sign another CB, possibly Bernard and maybe a striker ? Lets hope we can gel into a team plus shock a few of our opponents and create positive headlines for our brand of football COYI !!!
