Javier Hernandez will not be sold to Besiktas or anywhere else for half of what we paid for him as is currently being reported.
Once again The Sun – having picked up a report from Goal.com (yep, that’ how it works these days) – is repeating the line that the striker is set to make a £7.5 million switch just six months after joining the Irons for £16 million.
Quite where these stories come from is anyone’s guess but just like the ‘Carroll for Chelsea’ nonsense this too is a load of old pony.
We were told from a senior Hammers source this morning it again simply isn’t true as he laughed: hat? Absolutely no way.”.
If anyone can really imagine David Gold and David Sullivan taking a £8.5 million hit on such a player six months after buying him they are living in different world to most Hammers supporters.
This won’t happens.
