Lisbon victory lifts Hammers Carvahlo hopes

CarvalhoSporting Lisbon officials will return to the negotiating table with West Ham on Thursday morning as a very happy group.

William Carvahlo was missing from the team but the Portuguese team completed an absolute rout of Steau Bucharest in Romani tonight (Wed) to win their way through to aa Champions League place.

And that may convince the club they can live without the near 35 million euros Hammers target who has his heart set on a kove to the London Stadium.

Carvahlo missed both legs – the first through suspension – and the second as he is at the centre of protracted negotiations.

The Hammers have confirmed to ClaretandHugh that talks will re-start in the morning as the club’s negotiators bid to bring the deal to a conclusion.

Our sources claimed tonight that the chances may have now improved marginally as they bid to concude what they conclude a very difficult set of talks with one soure saying: “It’s tougher than negotiating with Daniel Levy!”

  1. Already sick of this gezzer !!

  2. Ours to lose !! Just get him before we get gazumped !!
    Today would be nice lol. 😉

  3. Just pay the release fee and then there is nothing to negotiate and we can move on!!!

  4. Unfortunately it isnt that easy as some of you think about “just pay the release clause”.So im a sad sod but i was reading up on it and there is far more to it than just pay the release money and its job done trust me.

  5. I always thought that you met the release clause and then sorted out what the selling club wanted in a settlement for taking their player and sell on clauses along with payment method up front and on the never never with interest ? Its only difficult when somebody makes it difficult like SL , but we haven’t met it so its taking even longer with remote possibility ,fingers crossed not , another club could come in and steal him!!! Just get it over the line as we need this type of player !

  6. Too many people think transfers are as simple as they are on Football Manager. Get a grip, if it happens great if it doesn’t we won’t be the first or last to fail in negotiations.

    • Yes we already understand that ??? What was the point of the post mate ? Grip what ??
      You’re about the millionth person that’s said that so enlighten us with you’re logic on the subject and educate us all and put it to bed , can’t wait so as quick as you can mate were all waiting .

  7. According to evening standard the deal has fell through and we now want Ndong from Sunderland , ????
