West Ham will finally tie up the deal for Manu Lanzini at the beginning of next month.

The brilliant midfielder’s injury problem have put the signing date back but the club are ready to do the deal at the start of April

The fee of £8 million has been agreed and a source told Claret and Hugh this morning: “We are sure he is through his injury worries but we are just being a tiny bit cautious.

“There is really no need to do the deal any earlier as we have the agreement in place and as we have said many times it’s watertight.

However, we understand the fans like updates and we an assure you that it is our intention to get the deal done. Manu seems absolutely fine now and all we have to do is invoke the clause which sees us take over his contract.

There is no reason for anyone to be concerned.”

  1. Wonder what the excuse will be next month,
    Just sign the boy he is going to be the next big Brazilian Star and has 8 good years in him,
    At £8 million euros he is going to be a better signing then Payet,
    You compare him with Oscar of Chelski and he is worth £25 million,
    He will get stronger and already has the right attitude working hard off the ball,

  2. please excuse my ignorance how is it possible to do this after the window has shut? even if an agreement has been made by the two party’s this surly is a transfer?
    only asking as this has been bothering me for a while how they can do this

    • Not really sure Ray.Some sort of agreement in place I guess.Transfer regulations & rules seem to be there for whoever it suits sometimes,lol

  3. Fed up of hearing this , just let us know when and if we sign him . This story is like a dripping tap .
