Hammers reveal they are “close” to Mario deal

WEST HAM  are closing in on a loan deal which would see Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario join the club until the end of the season with an option to buy the Portugal star in the summer.

We have been told by a senior club insider within the last few minutes:”The deal is now getting closer but it’s not done at this stage ”

“It’s a very expensive deal. He’s on huge money having cost 45 million euros and there will also be a very hefty loan fee involved.”

  1. If we sign super Mário then we also need more firepower up front to take any chances made By our super midfielder plus I think we also need a defensive midfielder who can help break up the opposition’s attacks

  2. You know what? I think hammer not sign any single player this january. Its all about press drama and generate profit from odds

    • That has certainly been the case previously Adji best not believe anything until you see the players in the shirt 😜

  3. 45 mill euros ? Its a very expensive deal ? Not British then ? Just think how cheap carvhalo was at 26 million quid ? How much this guy in the summer ? Good thing is a loan (surprise)
    Will help and if it costs you loads that’s down to you’re lack of vision ! Has sully ever done a deal where it doesn’t cost us money in the long run , its run on a day to day basis and that will always bring trouble ? Let’s hope nobody moves the goal posts and the fax doesn’t break !😜

  4. If the rumours are true the option to buy is £23m but who knows we hear all kinds rubbish in january. Agree we need a dm/cb and a striker. Hernandez isnt working out Sakho is stinkin the gaff out Ayew want a Marseille return and Carroll is a super sub now. Dendonker £20m and Dembele £20m? If we got all three that would be an impressive january.

  5. Well they also said they would listen to offers for sako. Ayew and the pea so with !Manny and markoi injured we wouldn’t have a lot of options up top …lol…. I’m not getting stressed like the last window but leaving everything to the last min is stupid …we need more that one loan midfielder that’s for sure ..#askingfortrouble
