Rich Chelsea to rival poor West Ham for Chicharito

HernandezReports in Mexico suggest Chelsea are willing to rival West Ham for the signature of Javier HernandezPublimetro  claims Chelsea have now joined the race for the former Manchester United star.

The publication says Chicharito, faces a choice between the “rich” Blues and the “poor” Hammers.

The Mexican report says: “Walking the streets of West Ham is not what you would imagine represents London. For fans of the West Ham it is important, their support is reflected in every game and every pub, although from 2016 they left their Stadium, Upton Park, to go to the Olympic Stadium in London. Currently, coach Slaven Bilic relies on Andy Carroll, an English attacker who emerged from Newcastle, but declined in his career from the excessive taste for nightlife and parties, until his salvation came from West Ham, where he has resumed a second chance with 23 goals in almost 100 games.” 

“Chelsea is the complete opposite of West Ham, in the streets surrounding Stamford Bridge you can breathe the opulence of the upper class of London. Fans enter the stadium dressed in ties and coats, almost like a gala just to enjoy the encounters of their beloved Blues”

  1. And another one bites the dust if he was ever gonna come… not too sad just tired of all these links…… just buy someone. The young man city kid is ginna be ****ing himself.

  2. Sorry, do you really think Chelsea are interested, I sincerely doubt it, doesn’t fit their type of player.

    • They prob at that low transfer fee but as a back up striker off the bench maybe like at Man U. But not as their #1 but they could easily grab him to have as proven super sub in premier league.
      We have been on him for a month so time to make a deal and pay Marquee wages. Or do what they say they don’t want and go for less proven players. Who’s fees will still most likely be same or higher.
      Could look at Babacar at Foirentinia 24, 6’3″ quite the player big CF like they like, could.look at King who scored 16 goals but a lot of Competition there and transfer fee would be high, Luuk She Jong who is great in Edervise league 44 goals in 76 apps. Or look at Championship A lot think Chris wood is not Premier Quality but i would bet on him over Gray. And he is the Traditional CF 27 goals 25 years old and good with feet for a big guy. Have to be given chance to prove themselves and would be btwn £10-£15m so could even be a #2 option.
      But Marko for £30m is madness he isn’t that good and Racist issues before attitude and ays when wants. Plus suggested move is just doe money for him and agent/brother. Ayew scored 6 goals and 2 assists in half a season vs his 7 and 3 (Ayew should of had 7 w Liverpool but he has more potential to me)
      £30m buys us Gray and Wood or gets us Chicharito and pays his wages for year in half.
      Think Ayew deserves his shot and will be lower wages too.
      Our club is all over the place.

  3. LOL what are those descriptions about?!

    • How the Mexican press see us obviously

      • One presumes they think the Chelsea stadium is off the Upper Kings Road rather than lower Fulham Broadway and the residents all wear Ermine while we all make do in Dick Van Dyke avenues with our cloth caps don’t ya know Govnor. Think they have seen too many of those 60s American travel documentaries they used to show in cinemas.

  4. Hahaha they forgot to mention Terrys mum and mother in law shoplifting and the old man selling raps of cocaine in seedy backroom karzi,s in pubs 🙂 bit like mexico only all over the gaff full of bandits and cartels dealing in child prostitution and the likes ? Come to think of it sounds a lot like the kings road to me , he should feel quite at home there 🙂

  5. They do seem to think that Stratford is full chimney sweeps while Chelsea is full of men in Top hats and tails. I think they have been watching Mary Popkins too much

  6. Its time for the padded cell if you start to believe some of the papers junk thats about.

  7. Wonder what they thought of Manchester when he played there, all those dark satanic mills and cars on bricks … No I’ve not been there either.

  8. Exactly what need , some chilly bean trying to us what east London is all about .
    Build the wall Trump .

  9. That newspaper article did make me laugh 😁
    Mr cholmondley-Warner came to mind.

  10. They did get one thing Right he would be our #1 starter. Chelsea he would be a bit part role. Behind Pierre Morata or Belotti.
    One thing I hope is true is we should know either way very soon.
