Thursday Transfer LIVE:
Juve believe that could open the door for them to prise away Matic with a deal worth £4.2million a year.This is HUUUGGEE! Manchester United are ready to pay €120m [£103m] for Paul Pogba. It will be a world-record transfer if this goes past the post!
Slaven Bilić has revealed that Dimitri Payet will be staying at West Ham, even if Europe’s big clubs come in for him, according to The Mail.
It seems players are not the only ones under the scanner. Liverpool’s owners have made their most significant move of the summer by opening talks with Jurgen Klopp over a new contract.
Klopp signed a three-year deal, with the option for a further season, when he was recruited by Fenway Sports Group last October but the Americans have taken action to ensure their manager remains at Anfield for the foreseeable future.Carlos Tevez knows his price it seems! West Ham offered to make Tevez the best-paid player in their history but claim the 32-year-old striker turned them down and demanded £250,000 per week.
Tevez was offered £150,000 – plus bonuses – and told he would be their first-choice striker next season, but he declined the offer and is set to stay at Argentinian club Boca Juniors.
An annoyed David Sullivan, West Ham’s co-owner, said: ‘All this business, “I love West Ham”, well it’s “I love West Ham if they give me £250,000 a week”.
