Bilic Rubbishes Rashford To West Ham Rumours
West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has dismissed rumours stating that the Hammers are in a bid for Marcus Rashford.
West Ham are willing to let Simeone Zaza leave for Juventus and are in the market for a replacement.
Rashford has been struggling at United under Jose Mourinho as the teenager has failed to break into the first-team.
When questioned about Rashford rumours Bilic said, “No way,” he told reporters when asked about the possibility of signing the United forward. “Rashford is very valuable for Manchester United. There’s no way. There’s no way to get him. They have many games, four competitions. He’s playing. So no way. No way.”
“We are the club that is linked with the most players in Europe! Every player that is available, it is always West Ham.”
“It’s that time of the year. You have the agents calling. I think we have a good principle. We have chairmen, there’s me and my staff, and we are working quite well.”
“Of course, you are bombed with names and everything. When you talk to them, everybody is like [Lionel] Messi or whatever. They are also very cheap, dying to come, and they have a little West Ham tattoo.”
“Not now … but since the school days and all that. You know it’s that time of the year.”
“At the end of the day it’s part of the job. If it was during the whole year it would be crazy, but then you have it twice a year. It is sometimes too much but sometimes you want it.”
“If we were talking about getting players then you cannot get them without agents. So you can’t say I don’t want to talk to them because then you will not get the players.”
