Paqueta transfer deal collapse: The transfer of the Brazilian playmaker to Manchester City has suddenly halted

The reports suggest the deal has broken down, and negotiations between the two clubs have ceased. As exclusively revealed to C&H via the players representatives, Paqueta will continue to put maximum effort into playing for West Ham.

The rumours surrounding the transfer, went as far as to suggest the deal is ‘90% unlikely’.

Pep Guardiola’s team have recently suffered a long term injury to midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. As a result City have made two bids for the Paqueta, the second of which is over £70M.

That valuation falls woefully short of West Ham’s valuation of the player which is £80m.

There is certainly more to come from this story. However, the club are remaining tight lipped on the issue.
