Despite signing a new £125,000 a week deal and claiming he is totally happy at the club, Dimitri Payet is regularly linked with interest from “big clubs” this summer.
The fact that the Irons are now with touching distance of the top and on the brink of a Wembley FA Cup semi final appearance makes no difference to the mischief makers who are fond of upsetting applecarts.
ClaretandHugh has revealed the Irons would not look at a bid of less that £50 million for the 29 YEAR OLD but when stories are short media tales can become TALL!
Payet can show again this evening why he is so incredibly important and unlikely to move anywhere when Manchester United come visiting.
Slav knows the score and declared: “It’s obvious that Payet enjoys every minute he spends here, but when a player is good there will always be rumours and interest from big clubs.
“What can I do about that? Should I drop him or tell him to start playing bad and score some own goals so he can stay with us for ten years?”
