Hammers offered Sporting Lisbon loan option

CarvalhoPortuguese newspaper The Record claim West Ham made a fresh last minute cheeky offer on deadline day to Sporting Lisbon for William Carvalho. The report claims that the Hammers would have asked for a six-month loan deal with an option to buy.

The Irons would have paid Carvalho wages plus a  €2m loan fee and then have an option make the permanent move in January 2018 for another €25m.

The offer is way under the Hammers previous offers and was subsequently rejected by Sporting Lisbon claims the newspaper.

Meanwhile, Lisbon newspaper A Bola says the loan offer was a  €2m loan fee and  €35m in January.

According to A BOLA on Friday, William Carvalho is not pleased with the situation, as the Sporting Lisbon player had hoped to make the leap to a more competitive European League- West Ham and Monaco were the most interested in his services – and the Hammers offered him the most advantageous salary conditions.

  1. Said once ill say it again..Board didn’t want to back Bilic in the window.. Hoping he will quit!! They talk about a top 6 finish..yet their net spend over 2 windows is 4mill..That’s not Top 6 spending?? Always Thought the Dave’s were good for us?? Starting to have second thoughts….

  2. You really couldn’t make this up could you ? Loan ffs 😂😂😂

  3. Sully drinking absinth again on hold 😂 ?

  4. Dont believe that loan shyt Laz.Jesus Christ that Record hasnt been right about anything to do with this deal from start to finish.
    I think its Sport Witness do a rundown of headlines so i kept a look out at Carvalho headlines from Portugal.Record are the Portuguese equivalent of The Sun i think 😁😁

    • I know you’re right rads ! Its just got sully stamped all over it lol 😂
      Would be nice to hear his version of events though! If only for a giggle 😂
      Got to watch noblett now ,week in week out , that’s really a bummer !!! Someone must know the bloke that services his scooter pre match ! Worth a tenner to put suger in his v8 turbo 😂

  5. Well its no wonder the deal never crossed the line if these figures are correct.Bloody cheeky sods.Not sure about the loan bit being true but considering Sporting were holding all the aces with this one particularly with C.L. group stage qualification they were never going to accept what we offered..Come January who knows we will either have miraculously risen or be right up **** creek and judging by the way he played yesterday(ok it was only the Faroe Islands) i would expect a higher asking price and more teams looking to buy him if he still wants to leave then.

  6. Good business by the club if it is true. Loan with the option to buy has worked well in the past. Zaza could have been a very expensive mistake if we signed him instead of a loan.

    What worries me about Carvalho was that no-one else was in for him. Why?

  7. Billic is a lame duck neither backed or sacked, he should just walk away with some dignity from this shambolic pantomime. In truth he should have been gone at the end of last season when the writing was on the wall. But in truth this is just history repeating itself with a board just not wanting to pay out a contract on a man they have no faith in (Grant ring any bells) Problem of course is who comes in to replace him at this late stage…who in there wright mind would want to work with this bunch of con artists. We were sold a dream that in reality has turned out mostly to be a pack of lies. Are we really led to believe that some how we have advanced since moving into this “state of the art stadium” what exactly have we achieved that could not have been done at our old place, apart from line there already full pockets. When the Red Bull offer came in I was not to sorry to see it turned down but now I have to admit maybe we would not find ourselves in the position we are now, who knows. This needs sorting out and quickly, if its not we could be heading towards the Championship with a ground we don’t even own. When we were promised about going to the next level I didn’t have that one in mind. COYI

  8. How are they going to pay.You will always get fans going to matches because if some stopped others would grab their tickets or are you going to be really manly and abuse or threaten an 80 year old and a man the height of an 8 year old.
    Which village idiots finishing school did you go to.

  9. Ffs they are just embarrassing. Why cant we have someone like levy who just keeps quiet and gets it done ( pains me to say it). Cavalho release clause was always £40e- yet they were moving the goal posts, difficult to deal with blah blah blah. We thought like mugs we could do a deal. Muppets

  10. Slav will be sacked in October and the tight wads are leaving incoming manager a little money to try and avoid relegation
    As Sky are saying we should have been spending £100 mil
    Wonder what are new owners will do when the Dell boys walk away from our club with loads of money
    Life as a happy hammer never changes

  11. See Del Boy’s comments on the WHU site. He has just hung Bilic out to dry, if you are inclined to believe a word he says. And as for ” why would you sign Carvilho without a full medical”, because he ain’t AC and he has just played and scored for his country! How dumb does he think we all are? The real change needs to come up at the very top, followed closely by the manager.
