Three Man United players West Ham could be in talks to sign
According to reliable West Ham United club insider @ExWHUemployee on his latest The West Ham Way blog, the east London club held talks with Manchester United about a potential transfer deal last week, but it was nothing to do with Marko Arnautovic following the rumour that Jose Mourinho is keen to sign the Austria international.
While @ExWHUemployee says that the Irons have an interest in goalkeeper Sam Johnstone as they look to provide Adrian with some much-needed competition following Joe Hart’s unsuccessful loan spell, there could be a number of other Red Devils players that were discussed.
New Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is clearly determined to strengthen his newly-inherited squad this summer, and there are a number of positions across the team that could do with reinforcing – including in attacking midfield after Manuel Lanzini’s huge injury blow while on international duty with Argentina that could keep him out for the entire 2018/19 campaign.
The Chilean boss, whose reign at the London Stadium would be getting off to a calamitous start if he signed a reported 30-year-old target, will have spread his net worldwide, but perhaps some of the solutions to his biggest problems may have been found at Old Trafford.
