West Ham fans beg club to meet Benitez demands

West Ham fans are all saying the same thing about a report on Rafael Benitez’s demands – show him the money!

According to the Daily Express, Rafael Benitez wants a £100m transfer budget to take over at West Ham, as well as a £6m per-year salary.

The Spaniard has been heavily linked with the West Ham post since David Moyes officially left the club earlier this week, and Newcastle fans are certainly getting a bit nervous.

The Hammers looked to be tying up a deal for Paulo Fonseca earlier this week, but the Shakhtar man has since signed a new contract with the Ukrainian club.

Friday’s reports suggest the Hammers are closing in on the signature of Manuel Pellegrini, who was sacked by Manchester City in 2016 despite boasting an impressive 60 per cent win rate and winning three major trophies.

The 64 year-old is currently the favourite to take over at the London Stadium, but fans aren’t completely ruling out Benitez, who they see as a proven winner who can take the club to the next level.

Similarly to Mike Ashley at Newcastle, that all hinges on whether the West Ham owner’s will shell out the cash, and fans are begging the club to make the right decision.
