Joao Mario deal on verge of collapse, West Ham United fans react

West Ham United have already recruited seven new players in this transfer window, but it seems that manager Manuel Pellegrini wants more.

The former Manchester City boss has been linked to a handful of midfielders and forwards, but he has just six days to finalise business.

One of those targets was thought to be Joao Mario, who spent the second half of last season on loan at the Hammers from Inter Milan.

The midfielder made 14 appearances for the East London outfit, and received mixed reviews from the fans.

On Wednesday, The Sun reported that West Ham have been joined by Everton and Leicester City in the race for Mario’s signature.

Now, it looks as though the East London outfit will miss out entirely as a club insider has dropped some interesting information.

Reliable source ExWHUemployee has tweeted that a deal for Mario is unlikely to go ahead.

In reaction to the post, some West Ham fans are unhappy, while others have no concerns if the club are unsuccessful in landing him.
