Manu Lanzini’s contract talks could start as soon as January or go on the end of season agenda.
Newspaper reports have been inaccurately claiming the little midfielder is either in negotiations with the club or is about to be.
The Hammers are ready to offer a new deal but there’s no hurry from club or player to put the contract together as the club battles to grab the morale boosting wins which will hopefully start a surge up the table.
We were told tonight that a new contract offer is on the cards and that one would definitely be offered to the injured Argentine.
A source told us: “With options he still has five years left on his present contract but we are looking at January or September as the time to look at a new contract. There is no pressure from either side to do anything at this moment.”
No hurry because I believe the players agent is already in discussions with Liverpool, think Lanzini is already taking Scouse lessons. Trouble is without a new deal signed we are never going to get a proper fee, will probably only get around 25m. Liverpool love screwing us they sell player for 125m and buy great young international replacement and still bank 100m. Think the Dildo brothers need to get Levy contracted to conduct our future transfers, he never gets short changed in the transfer market.
Don’t forget Liverpool blew the whistle on the Tevez contract to PL, FA and other clubs, and even supported the likes of Sheffield Utd in the compensation claim. But our two chairmen can’t wait to do do business with them and grab whatever they can get for Lanzini. After all he is only one player and just think how many loan signing they could get in to replace him.
I agree but not £25m Ox same age diff player for £35-£440m they paid w 1 year left. So would be at least the same. Bc still has what 3 years left on deal
Yes he isn’t in rush bc he wants to see how they do this season he has already had a nice deal from what I understand.
But he wouldn’t start at Liverpool that are stacked for CMs Keita is coming too go Ox and left wing is covered.
Tho I think Lanzini would do well in 4-3-3 even here w strong holding mid for him to be on left and go in behind front 3.
But supposedly had £80k plus preformance add ons making more than most except Hart Chic and AC.
He will wait and see how the season goes what happens with Bilic and offers he might get.
We really needed another creator even tho he isn’t big on assists he does better with another creative player and think anothrr #10 w injuries would have been great.
I’d love us to move for 24yo Ajax Akem Ziyech w 48 goals and 50 assists in Everdivisie league. 14 assists last season.
