Pelle and Husillos target list may surprise

Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Husillos have a target list of players known only to themselves as the transfer window approaches fast.

The pair are now entirely in charge of all arrivals and exits and at this stage the list of names Husillos in particular is involved in chasing are known to nobody outside the two of them.

The board agreed the final budget for summer a couple of weeks ago when the £30 million plus all sales was confirmed as the final package.

Husillos is currently talking to the agents of those players at the top of the duo’s list as he bids to strengthen the squad.

The only names – best described as fictional in most cases – appear courtesy mainly of the European media although both Salomon Rondon and Alexsander Mitrovic are known to be of interest.

However, a highly placed source Hammers source said: “There could be a surprise or two on the cards as Mario works very much alone in the transfer windows and only one or two people will know what’s happening once the management team have got together after a short summer break.”

  1. That really is a shocking amount to invest for a club supposedly going forward. …embarrassing really. ..you can get good deals but we are short 4\5 players and that just won’t work ..there can be no excuses this season so it will be interesting to see what happens..

    • I agree with you Hammerkip.
      Seeing that the two davids are worth more than a billion pounds between them it seems a derisory amount of money to have available.
      I believe at a push there will be more than thirty million available as i don’t think pellegrini would have been happy when told about the amount.

      • He would have known when he took the job and is reported as saying clubs our size don’t have outrageous resources

      • The club can only spend within its own means that’s what the financial fair play rule is for so it doesn’t matter how much the owners have if not city would just buy everyone like Chelsea used to, we have great academy and should use that rather than rely on big names on big wages who end up injure or can’t adapt this isn’t championship manager.

  2. Exactly. We knew what we were getting with these owners, and so does Pelle. Look what they did at Birmingham. Ran a steadily improving ship. Last years investment was not the norm. I think they are building us up to be a 5th/6th place contender. Beats being a relegation contender!
