Lanzini deal confirmed

Manuel Lanzini’s top performance has again raised the big question among Hammers fans – do we have a deal in place to buy the player?

ClaretandHugh revealed over a week again that there is indeed a deal agreed with his parent club Al Jazira and David Gold confirmed to us again this evening that the decision will be made at the end of the season.

He explained to us: “There is no reason for any anxiety. As is always the case, we will make our decision just before or at the end of the season. All the details have been arranged.”

ClaretandHugh has learned that the fee is believed to be in the region of £5-£6 million.

Slaven Bilic has declared his admiration for the player explaining that he has made a real impact and that he and Dimi Payet are a real force.

Gold had revealed earlier on the offiial website:  “We have an option on him at the end of the season and you need to see him over the whole year and see someone perform at this level on a consistent basis.

But if he keeps putting in the displays that we are seeing at the moment, then the manager will keep picking him.”

  1. Good to see some bellends on Wetpants can still defend Hippohead.Some people really just don’t get our club.All they see is a league position & the collateral damage was immaterial.Idiots.

  2. There will always be a few.Mainly ones who aint got a clue about our club & thought Hippohead was good for us.They never have & never will understand West Ham.Now we have manager who underrstands perfectly.Maybe the Allardyce defence army can go jog on up to The Stadium of Light.

  3. I hope I understand West Ham United , we as a club are bigger and stronger than most cause we are believer’s in the “cause” that it’s the football we play more than the results that counts, We hate losing ” but” if we are trying to play the West Ham United way we are okay .

  4. If the deal is all but sealed why is the price not bang on not 5/6,
    Just don’t understand why we don’t just part with the money before Lanzini,s agent starts contacting the big clubs and he gets offered £100 k per week and the Arabs offer us £5 million compo,
    As for the Hippo lovers they will never be part of our great club,never understand football in any form,
    What’s to say he went to West Brom who have not won at home looking for a point and paid the price as usual,
    Hippo watch should be interesting in the next 2 weeks because after that he has some really hard games,
