Lanzini deal safe despite Al Jaziera change

gianlucananiGianluca Nani’s arrival at Manu Lanzini’s parent club Al Jaziera will make no difference to the player’s availability to West Ham.

ClaretandHugh reported yesterday that Nani had joined the club as technical director raising fears that the man fired by David Sullivan and David Gold in 2010 could look at the deal again.

Nani of course was brought in to assist Alan Curbishley in the summer of 2008, but his £300,000 a year deal was considered surplus to requirements by the new joint owners.

With Lanzini having performed at Upton Park, it was feared Nani may try to re-negotiate or even scupper the deal but a Hammers source declared emphatically this morning: “That’s not possible. We have a solid option to buy out the player’s contract.

“We have said several times in the past, it’s watertight and a change of personnel at the club can’t change that.”

  1. Just hope I don’t end up watching him play for someone else,we never seem to keep our exciting player,
    But I will enjoy this year and see what happens
    All I can say is if he goes elsewhere then someone head should role for having us and the 2 Daves over,fans have been saying get the deal done for months,
    He could be our future at his age what will he turn into in the premier when he reaches Payets age,

  2. I like most hammers cannot wait for lanzini and payet to return , 6 polnts from our next three games 30 points at halfway stage and on the up instead of the normal new year decline and the sky’s the limit , our dreams this year will not fade and die up the irons!
