Dimitri Payet is at the centre of interest from Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old has been being involved in 25 Hammers goals so far and has shown beyond a doubt he is the best free kick taker in the world at the moment.
The story says that Real Madrid and Barcelona are prepared to offer £35 million for the Frenchman but don’t worry it is only the Brentwood Gazette which means it will repeated in the Daily Express and Daily Star within the next twenty-four hours.
The in-form midfielder has previously been linked with French giants PSG and a £38m move to China and this is only the start of it before the transfer window opens again in the summer.
Unfortunately, as Dimi’s success on the pitch for West Ham continues, expect him to be linked regularly with some of the biggest clubs in the world. Let’s be honest everyone has a price and we would naive to think loyalty is guaranteed to keep him at West Ham for the rest of his playing career.
If he did ever move, it would take a massive club like Real Madrid or Barcelona on mega wages and a massive transfer to make the move but I am sure the West Ham board would still not give up without a big fight to keep their star asset. I know he is now 29 years old now but if Gareth Bale was worth £90m at 24 years of age to Real Madrid on a basic wage of £170,000 per week then a European super club would need to pay considerably more than £35m to steal our prize player away from the Hammers.
